Recaro Aircraft Seating has received additional orders to outfit Alaska Airlines’ (Alaska) new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft with 13 shipsets of the CL4710 business class and BL3530 economy class seats. Alaska is the first carrier to order additional Boeing B737 MAX aircraft since it was cleared for flight operations by the FAA.
Alaska was also the launch customer for the CL4710, which was designed specifically for business class travellers on domestic and shorter international flights. Deliveries of the aircraft, line-fitted with the seats, are slated to begin in July 2021
“Guests love our new seats. From the adjustable footrest and cup holder in first class, to the conveniently placed charging ports and tablet holder in the main cabin, there so many thoughtful details in the seat design for everyone,” said Amber Simonsen, director of product development & delivery at Alaska Airlines.
“If 2020 proved anything, Recaro and Alaska both face challenges head-on, and we are privileged to have called them a partner for the past decade,” added Mark Hiller, CEO of Recaro Aircraft Seating.
