Recaro SFE seat on tigerair A320neo aircraft
Recaro Aircraft Seating has gained another major selection from Asia: At the end of July, tigerair from Singapore selected Recaro’s 3530Swift SFE (Supplier Furnished Equipment) economy class seats to equip new A320neo aircraft that it has on order from Airbus. For Recaro, the July order from tigerair brings a volume of 3,800 seats for 20 A320neo shipsets.
The 3530Swift, which was developed jointly by Airbus and Recaro, will be deployed on the A320 family aircraft. The seat is available as an SFE option from Airbus for the A320 family – in both new aircraft and retrofitting projects.
The seats are offered in predefined and pre-certified configurations allowing a wide range of customization. This means that Airbus has opted for an aircraft seat manufacturer as an “exclusive supplier” of economy class seats that has systematically aligned its product strategy to passenger comfort, lightweight construction and efficiency, and has always targeted reliable delivery dates for OEMs and airlines.
Since the beginning of 2016, Airbus has placed orders for the Recaro SFE 3530Swift seats to equip 74 new A320 family aircraft..
With this latest Recaro seat selection from tigerair, Recaro says it is successfully pursuing its worldwide growth path. The Asian region is developing especially well for the German aircraft seat manufacturer.
“We congratulate tigerair and are very happy to contribute to the success of the airline with our seats. We are delighted to be able to further expand our partnership with Tigerair, a subsidiary airline under the Singapore Airlines Group,” says Irene Tan, General Manager Asia Pacific at Recaro Aircraft Seating. “The 3530Swift seat’s short delivery times, combined with its extensive options package, represent an ideal solution for low-cost airlines.”
