Expliseat to launch TiSeat E2 for Boeing 737

Expliseat has launched the TiSeat E2, the standard model for Boeing 737 aircraft, two years after the first release of the Titanium Seat Neo, a lightweight, prime comfort aircraft seat, a proof concept designed together with Peugeot Design Lab.

Based on the ‘concept car’ model used by car manufacturers, Expliseat started by showcasing a seat concept to airlines in 2016 and the seat has been tested by a dozen airlines in different configurations allowing Expliseat to adjust the standard model of the seat.

President and founder of Expliseat, Benjamin Saada, explained: “To design the TiSeat E2, we radically changed our way of working. Our ambition for this product is twofold; to go as far as the TiSeat E1, our current short haul aircraft seat, on weight performance and to satisfy as many airlines as possible albeit their diverse needs”.

Expliseat offers a range of optional features and customisation which allows airlines to adjust the TiSeat E2 configuration to their needs. As a result the TiSeat E2 can meet the need of a legacy airline on medium haul segments, as well as the needs of low-fare or regional carriers on short-haul segments with intensive use.

“New aircraft are more and more versatile, today; the same aircraft can operate several short segments and then fly across the Atlantic. We had to offer a unique seat for all situations”, said Saada.

As a result of its patented technology which combines carbon fibre and titanium, the manufacturer says the TiSeat E2 is 60% lighter than its competitors, which Expliseat suggested, could represent a weight saving of up to 1.7 tonnes or 3,750 lbs on a new 737 MAX 10. Expliseat says this enables an improved performance of the aircraft.

Saada said: “On a Boeing 737, TiSeat E2 reduces CO2 emissions by up to 4% and offers tremendous economic advantages to operators: fuel bill reduction, cargo and, or passenger revenue increase as well as a network optimisation”.
