Gulf Air’s new fleet of A321neoLR aircraft will fly with Recaro Aircraft Seating’s CL3710 economy class seat.
The first of 29 aircraft to be equipped with the CL3710 seat has entered into service with further deliveries slated over the next five years.
“Gulf Air is a fantastic customer for Recaro, as we are both concentrating on expanding our footprint in the Middle East,” said Mark Hiller, CEO at Recaro Aircraft Seating.
The seat’s modular design ensures minimal maintenance and its competitive weight contributes to fuel efficiency. Since its introduction to the market in 2013, the CL3710 has equipped aircraft for nearly a dozen airlines.
“We are celebrating our 70th anniversary this year at Gulf Air, and we’ve got both eyes on the future,” said Krešimir Kučko, Gulf Air’s CEO. “Our partnership with Recaro is a sign of dedication to our passengers, as we collaborate to bring them unparalleled levels of comfort and the best service every time they fly with us.”
