Acro Aircraft Seating has launched Series 6LC Economy Class seat, aimed primarily at the low-cost carrier’s narrowbody fleets.
Series 6LC re-defines Acro’s quest for simplicity with its minimalist design aesthetic and reduced part count, whilst also enhancing comfort with Acro’s innovative curved seat back design which unlocks space at knee level.
Series 6LC features include a pre-reclined fixed back, with an upper literature pocket, sliding table and lightweight armrests. Additional options include comfort seat covers, crew step, lower literature pocket and USB A & C provisioning.
Alan McInnes, SVP Sales said: “Series 6LC is another example of Acro’s commitment to achieving an attractive seating solution for our airline customers, especially the hard working narrowbody fleets of regional or low-cost carriers. We have strived to achieve a lightweight seat and reduce complexity with fewer moving parts. Not forgetting, the comfort enhancements associated with Acro’s Extra-spatial Design philosophy.”
“In an Airbus A320 family configuration, our innovative Xtra Comfort feature offers extra width to the middle seat, resulting in significant improvements in passenger comfort in what is generally viewed as the least popular seat in the row. Our overall seat widths also optimise cabin operations by achieving a wider aisle for faster loading and unloading of passengers,” McInnes added.
Acro has secured a major low-cost carrier as a launch customer for Series 6LC and will be announcing this collaboration in the forthcoming weeks.
