Airbus has added Acro Aircraft Seating to its list of Premium Suppliers of economy class and premium economy class seats in the July 2023 release of its BFE (buyer furnished equipment) product catalogue.
This supplier support rating for BFE equipment is published to help guide customers, such as airlines and lessors, during their equipment selection process. This rating, which is reviewed every six months, is based on three criteria: delivery performance, quality performance and technical performance.
Neil Cairns, chief executive of Acro, said of earning premium supplier’ status from Airbus, “This award takes our longstanding partnership with Airbus and our customers to a new level and we look forward to reaping the commercial benefits which this rating will unlock for our business across the world.”
“As ‘Premium Supplier’ indicates, we’re not only setting the bar high on innovative design, we are also delivering on the essential practicalities which make our products very robust and reliable in operation,” he continued.
“We look forward to deepening our relationship with Airbus as, together, we work to achieve the high technical, logistic and quality standard required to meet rising customer expectations and set new standards for our industry.”
