April 12, 2017 – British Airways and Iberia, two International Airlines Group (IAG) carriers, have again chosen Recaro Aircraft Seating for their economy class seats, ordering 9,000 units of the SL3510 model. The seats – which weigh 9kg per pax place – will be installed on the two European airlines’ new Airbus A320neo and A321neo short-haul aircraft and are scheduled for delivery in early 2018. In addition, Iberia’s existing A320ceo aircraft will be retrofitted with SL3510 seats.
“We particularly need world-class aircraft seats that are utterly reliable and robust, yet also light and easy to maintain, for our extremely busy short-haul flights within Europe. The SL3510 model from Recaro fulfills all of our expectations and offers our demanding customers an outstanding level of comfort,” said Alex Cruz, chairman and CEO of British Airways.
