Airbase wins seat cover contract for Acro

Airbase, part of Trenchard Aviation Group, has won the contract to manufacture Ultra-Leather seat covers for Acro seating set for installation on American ultra-low-cost carrier, Spirit Airlines.

Mark Faulkner, Trenchard Aviation Group’s CEO, commented: “We’re delighted to be working with Acro to help them fulfil their contract with Spirit Airlines. This new win is further evidence of how successful we are at meeting the needs of the aircraft cabin interiors industry.”

Based near London’s Gatwick airport, Airbase’s experienced team of pattern makers and machinists are highly skilled in creating and developing new covers and curtains to match customer specifications and all textile materials used in manufacture are tested in the company’s on-site UKAS-approved vertical burn test chamber.

Founded in 2007 and based in the UK, Acro Aircraft Seating is a manufacturer of passenger seats for commercial aircraft. In September, it announced that Spirit Airlines is to be the launch customer for its new Series 6LC Economy Class seat.
Spirit Airlines is an American ultra-low-cost carrier headquartered in Miramar, Florida. It operates more than 600 daily flights to 76 destinations in the US, Latin America and the Caribbean.
