Acro Aircraft Seating have delivered their first Series 7 premium economy seat to launch customer Primera Air.
This is the first of eight Airbus A321neos due for delivery in 2018 to have the front four rows (16 seats per shipset) installed with Acro’s Series 7 premium economy seats and the remaining rows with Acro’s Series 6 economy seats.
Alan McInnes, senior vice-president sales of Acro said: “This is an exciting first for us, where we have supplied both the economy and premium seats on the one aircraft. The achievement was possible through the investment in our staff and product development, we’re reaching new heights in our capabilities for comfort innovation.”
Having previously worked for Acro to support the design and development of the Superlight, Series 3 and Series 6 seat products, Acro invited Factorydesign to help define the architecture, packaging and design features of Series 7.
Acro said the Series 7 “applies Acro’s DNA and unique approach to a new market sector, giving passengers maximum space and an exciting new comfort experience.”
