Recaro Aircraft Seating has launched the first-of-its-kind hybrid seat show, taking place at the company’s headquarters in Schwaebisch Hall, Germany.
The two-week event, which began on 6 September and comes to a close on 17 September, has attracted nearly 100 participating customers.
“This hybrid seat show is one way we can invest in the industry’s path to recovery. We have used the past 18 months to improve efficiency and continue building our future,” said Mark Hiller, CEO at Recaro Aircraft Seating. “Standing at the threshold of a new age of air travel, Recaro will never stop innovating or engaging. We are a brand in motion and are committed to delivering superior experiences for our customers.”
The seat show is structured with slots where airline can register to attend either in-person or virtually. In order to accommodate almost all time zones, Recaro sales teams are meeting with customers from 5 am– 10 pm every day of the show. During the seat demonstrations, customers are free to ask questions to the sales team, product managers or engineers.
A wide variety of Recaro seats are being featured at the hybrid seat show, including the award-winning BL3710 economy class seat, the brand-new CL3810 long-range economy class seat, and the CL6720 lie-flat business class seat. Regional jet customers can experience the SL3710 and BL3710 economy class seats, which have been adapted for regional, short-range flights. Recaro is also showcasing its flexible seating solutions, including the BL3530 SPRINT, SMART and SWIFT seats, which can be ordered and installed within six months or less.
