Jamco has selected Astronics PGA to supply seat motion and lighting systems for its Venture seat programme, for installation on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
Jamco’s new Venture seat product was announced in 2017 in a collaboration with Boeing. The seats align spatially, structurally and aesthetically with the Boeing787 Dreamliner. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines recently selected these seats for 8 of their new Boeing 787s, set for delivery in mid-2019.
The system will include Astronics PGA’s newer technologies, including full speed control for smooth, ultra-quiet kinematic motion plus controllable mood lighting to enhance the passenger experience.
“Being selected as the motion and lighting system partner by Jamco is a testament to the quality, functionality, and value of our innovative solutions,” said Fabrice Berthelot, Astronics PGA president. “With our complete system, customers will benefit from a high level of reliability, while passengers will enjoy unmatched comfort. We appreciate the confidence that Jamco has placed in us and are excited to commence our first seat project with them.”
Astronics PGA also entered into a long-term contract for potential future seat projects.
