Jetstar Australia’s new A321neo aircraft, due to arrive from 2022 onwards, will be outfitted with Recaro’s BL3710 seating.
Jetstar will be one of the first airlines in the Asia-Pacific region to integrate the BL3710 into its fleet when it is introduced next year.
The aircraft will seat 232 passengers in a single-class cabin. Pitched at 29 inches, the BL3710 seats, the successor model of the BL3530, which has been successfully operating on Jetstar’s current A320 fleet, are 18 inches wide, and will have tapered arm rests to maximise personal space. The seat also features individual tablet holders and in-seat USB power.
Jetstar’s 18 planned A321neo’s will also feature extra-large overhead bins with 40% more room to stow bags; digital streaming giving passengers the ability to access Jetstar’s in-flight entertainment featuring new release movies, TV shows and games on their personal devices; flip-down smartphone and tablet cradles and colour LED lighting that adjusts to the different stages of flight, supporting the transition through various stages of flight.
Jetstar’s 18 A321 LRs will be deployed on domestic routes and ultimately on some international routes like Sydney to Bali.
