Air Lease Corp receives predefined seats within two months


The first shipset of BL3530 seats from Recaro’s Sprint programme have been installed on an Air Lease Corporation B737 aircraft. Introduced in late 2019, the Sprint programme promises to develop and ship predefined BL3530 seats for aircraft lessors within two months of the order being submitted.

The Sprint program can equip either an A320 or B737 with the BL3530 economy class seat, which lessors can customise with one of five different predefined e-leather dress cover colours: light blue, dark blue, light grey, dark grey or red. Recaro is the first aircraft seating manufacturer to introduce a seating programme that offers lessors a customisable seat with a two-month turnaround.

“The feedback we gathered from lessors reflected a clear need for seats with a shorter lead time, so we began brainstorming,” said Sophie Moeller, regional sales director, customer service at Recaro Aircraft Seating. “We first developed the Smart and Swift programmes, which supply seats within six and four months, respectively, but it was clear that an even shorter timeframe was needed. We collaborated with programme management and engineering to create a predeveloped seat that could be ordered and shipped within two months, and Sprint was born.”
