Recaro Aircraft Seating has signed an extension contract with Airbus for the delivery of SWIFT economy class seats.
The original contract dates back to 2016 with the BL3530 seat and equips the Airbus A320 Family aircraft with pre-certified economy class seats. This contract extension aims to enlarge the supplier furnished equipment (SFE) catalogue with the latest RECARO products.
The SWIFT program was created to target lessors and airlines that require a short lead-time of four months or less via a SFE process. The last-minute flexibility without compromising seat quality has resulted in a popular solution for airlines in a post-pandemic environment.
Recaro currently offers predefined and pre-certified versions of its BL3530, BL3710, and CL4710, and provides various dual-class cabin configurations of the SWIFT family of seats. Optional seat features range from comfort packages and in-seat power solutions to tablet holders and ELeather colours. The light weight SL3710 is slated to join the Airbus SFE catalogue soon.
