Finnish airline Norra, which operates regional traffic on behalf of Finnair has selected Acro’s Series 3 ST+ seat as part of a fleet-wide cabin refresh on the ATR aircraft.
Acro has been working to deliver the project in an efficient lead time of eight months and it will be a first delivery for the Series 3 ST+ on an ATR aircraft.
Alan McInnes, SVP Sales said: “We are delighted to welcome Norra and Finnair as a new customers. We have collaborated with the team to develop a customised version of Series 3ST+ that includes an enhanced leather literature pocket, coat hook, luxurious leather seat covers and bespoke cushions. The space-saving advantages associated with Acro’s unique curved seatback design will provide passengers with superior levels of comfort, especially at the 31-inch pitch selected for this.”
The Series 3 ST+ seat further enhances the passenger experience with its relaxed recline angle of 24 degrees and provides greater functionality with the enhanced table size.
The first ATR aircraft with the Series 3ST+ seats installed is expected to be in operation in summer 2019, and the refurbishment of the 12 aircraft should be completed by the end of Q1, 2020.
