LIFT by EnCore has announced that its first 737 Tourist Class Seating recently entered into service after LOT Polish Airlines received its first Boeing 737 MAX.
The aircraft was the first of six Boeing 737 MAX leased to LOT by Air Lease Corporation.
Tourist Class Seating is a result of a collaboration between LIFT and Boeing, first announced in April 2016, to develop seats that are ergonomically optimised and designed for the Boeing Sky Interior. LIFT said its 737 Tourist Class Seating is the widest 737 economy class seat on the market.
Since then, 737 Tourist Class Seating has been designed, engineered, certified, and successfully received regulatory certification.
“LOT, as one of the fastest growing airlines in Europe, is proudly the first legacy European airline to fly brand new Boeing 737 MAX 8 and at the same time the first one to offer this exceptional travel experience with new LIFT by EnCore seats on board,” said Rafal Milczarski, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines. “Our passengers already appreciate the unique level of their comfort. Seats manufactured by LIFT perfectly suits to our strategy of being perceived as the most modern, comfortable and hospitable airline at the European sky.”
“This is an important milestone for LIFT, as it marks our first delivery of 737 Tourist Class Seating,” said LIFT by EnCore’s CEO, Tom McFarland. “EnCore has consistently built a reputation of reliability and dependability, showing our dedication to follow through on all promises – LIFT is continuing this tradition.”
