Recaro Aircraft Seating has received an order for 4,700 economy and business class seats from Canadian airline, WestJet.
Ten Boeing long-haul aircraft are to be equipped with CL3710 seats, while for short and medium-haul routes, Recaro will supply BL3520 economy class seats and CL4710 business class seats for ten of the airline’s aircraft. The seat deliveries will begin in 2018.
“Recaro impressed us with its intelligent design and fast delivery times,” said Tim Croyle, executive vice-president of WestJet. “Equipping the cabins of our new Boeing 787 Dreamliner and B737 MAX aircraft with these world-class seats, we are confident our guests will be impressed with the comfort and uncompromising quality of the CL3710 and BL3520 economy class seats and CL4710 business class seats.”
On short-haul routes, WestJet will be deploying Recaro seats throughout the entire B737 MAX cabins. The BL3520, which will be used in economy, is one of the most reliable seats in its class and stands out with its advanced lightweight design and exceptional passenger comfort.
The Canadian airline selected the CL4710 for its business class on short and medium-haul routes. The business class seat features a variety of stowage compartments for personal belongings. A leg rest, which can be adjusted in length and angle to adapt to the needs of individual passengers, contributes to in-flight comfort. The seats can also be equipped with state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment systems.
