April 12, 2016 – Philippines carrier Cebu Pacific Air is the first airline in the Asia-Pacific region to order the SL3510 seat model from Recaro Aircraft Seating, with the seats to be fitted to its 30 new A321neo aircraft.
The lightweight economy class seat (around 9kg /20 lb) uses thin and light innovative netting material as the core of the backrest instead of foam. According to Recaro, this means the weight of the seat is reduced while space is increased: with a thinner backrest, the space between seat rows and consequently the living space for passengers is increased. At the same time, the netting material ergonomically conforms to the shape of the passenger’s spine, for comfort.
