TiSeat E2, Expliseat’s economy class seats for short-haul and long-haul flights, now features in the Airbus A320 BFE Product catalogue.

TiSeat E2 for the Airbus A320 family is based on Expliseat’s advanced seat frame in carbon fibre composite and titanium which has demonstrated over 28 million in-service flight hours and 15 successful certification campaigns, including Head Injury Criteria (HIC), on several aircraft platforms.

Starting at 5 kg per passenger, fully dressed and compliant with HIC, TiSeat E2 is comprised of two product lines: S-line offering efficient features for six-hour flights and X-line, more versatile, for long and extra long-range segments.

The design flexibility and reduction in parts offered by Expliseat’s patented seat frame has been used to reduce weight and maintenance cost while increasing passenger experience with extra living space, large centre armrests and generous enveloping cushions.

Weight savings of TiSeat E2 reduces fuel cost while increasing aircraft performance, easing airlines operations.

“No more compromise between lighter solutions and passenger experience, maintenance or price. With TiSeat E2, we have broken this paradigm! R&D investments, enormous industrial efforts and multiple iterative workshops with customers are allowing us to offer a different solution where lightness means better comfort, better durability, better economics,” said Benjamin Saada, CEO and Co-founder of Expliseat.

TiSeat E2 enters the Airbus A320 family BFE product catalogue after Expliseat’s demonstration of its ability to deliver seats in conformity with Airbus final assembly line requirements.

“It took us less than 10 years to develop our unique technology and become a major player in the regional market. Our solution is mature and we are entering the A320 BFE product catalogue with strong operational and environmental arguments as well as competitive pricing. It will help our customers comply with environmental rules and attract new passengers looking for better solutions,” Saada concluded.

Chinese aircraft manufacturer COMAC has selected French aircraft seat manufacturer Expliseat to develop a family of lightweight economy seats to be installed on its new ARJ21 aircraft.

This is the first contract in China for Expliseat.

The new seat is based on the latest TiSeat E2 seat platform in carbon fiber composite and titanium made by Expliseat and has been adjusted to the ARJ21 dimensions. Fresh innovations include a new recline mechanism that will make the TiSeat E2 40% lighter than the best equivalent competitor’s certified seats.

“It is an honour to be selected by COMAC. They will benefit from all the advantages offered by our cutting-edge technology. It will help ARJ21 customers to maximise profits and revenues leveraging carbon footprint reduction due to fuel bill or maintenance cost drop and increased life cycle. Passengers will also benefit from the most advanced comfort feature in terms of recline and ergonomics. We look forward to a bright future in China with COMAC,” said Benjamin Saada, CEO Expliseat.
