Qatar Airways will receive Recaro brand-new CL3810 economy class seat, for outfitting its new A321neo fleet.

Starting at the end of 2022, 20 shipsets of the CL3810 will be installed.

Qatar Airways is one of the first airlines to select the CL3810, which was unveiled in 2020. The customised seat features offer a wider backrest for increased comfort and privacy, as well as a six-way headrest with adjustable neck support feature.

“We are pleased to be one of the first global airlines to select the CL3810 Economy Class seat – Recaro’s latest, sustainable and advanced seating product,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker. “Established nearly two decades ago, our long-term partnership with Recaro Aircraft Seating reflects our confidence in the supplier’s exemplified designs and technology.”

The newest addition to the economy class portfolio, the CL3810’s unique shape was designed to support the passenger’s points of tension, which reflects the design of the Recaro Automotive sport seat. Compared to its predecessor, the CL3810 offers an additional inch of living space, a more advanced articulated seat pan, and a wider backrest to enhance row-to-row privacy.

The seat weight was reduced by more than 15% when compared to the CL3710, which can save airlines thousands in fuel costs and optimise cabin performance. All Recaro seats are comprised of long-lasting and durable materials that help extend the life cycle of seats and minimise the total cost of ownership for airlines.
