ELeather will dress 32,000 Recaro SL3710 economy class seats across 146 new Airbus aircraft, entirely in sustainable, high-performance materials, on behalf of European low-fare carrier, Wizz Air.
The new Recaro lightweight seat with recycled leather upholstery from ELeather will be installed in 2021.
“Wizz Air is one of our longest standing customers. This new deal marks almost 10 years working together. We’ve always been proud to partner with brands that have strong environmental agendas and Wizz Air is a great example of an airline that takes a more holistic approach when selecting sustainable suppliers and their products,” said John Kennedy, CEO, ELeather.
Wizz Air worked alongside ELeather and Recaro to develop the sustainable seat solution for the carrier, in support of the numerous initiatives the airline is already committed to. The seat material is made using recycled leather content and designed to increase performance while achieving a significantly lower environmental footprint.
