Recaro Aircraft Seating has enjoyed a highly successful April. A large part of the success was due to the company’s many contract signings at Aircraft Interiors Expo 2018 in Hamburg, Germany, with new orders including global carriers such as Avianca, Cathay Pacific, Cebu Pacific, Donghai Airlines, GOL Linhas Aéreas, Juneyao Airlines, Peach, Ruili Airlines, Singapore Airlines, SpiceJet (for close to 10,000 BL3530 Smart economy class seats on 50 of the airline’s 50 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft) and Icelandic airline WOW air for around 100 CL4400 business class seats with new seat covers.
China Southern also placed an order, for Recaro aircraft seats to be fitted to every class in its new A350- 900 fleet, including 6,200 CL6710 lightweight seats for business class (its first fitment in an A350), PL3530 for premium economy and CL3710 for economy class.
Recaro Aircraft Seating was also honored with an Airbus ‘Supplier Support Rating’, the main criteria for which were product reliability, spares on-time delivery, quick response times of customer service, and cost. Recaro is also expanding its customer service support and was issued the first STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) approval for the Airbus A321.
“This award by Airbus shows that our long-term strategic planning for strong customer satisfaction is paying off,” stated Dr Mark Hiller, CEO of Recaro Aircraft Seating. “It is a great incentive to the company and team. An important asset is to be a comprehensive solutions provider.”
