COMAC ARJ21 in flight

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.

Claiming to be 40% % lighter than any other certified seats in the market, TiSeat E2 is reducing the total weight of Nolinor’s aircraft by 1.1 tons. The seat is equipped with a 4.5-inch recline and foam combinations for flights up to 7 hours.

“For our new fleet of Boeing 737-400, we needed to give a fresh look to the interior of our aircraft while also improving performance. The solution put forward by Expliseat is perfect for us,” said Marco Prud’Homme, President of Nolinor Aviation.

“Our market shares in Canada are rapidly growing with more than 3,000 TiSeat flying on Dash 8, ATR and Boeing 737 aircraft. We are delighted to have Nolinor flying with our seats on the Boeing 737 aircraft. It demonstrates how our lightweight technology is a key asset for Airlines in Canada to improve their operations while decreasing their CO2 emissions,” concludes Benjamin Saada, CEO Expliseat.
