TAP presents the Recaro CL6710 at ITB


The Recaro CL6710 will be on TAP's A330-900neo

This this week during the ITB Berlin, TAP Portugal is presenting its new Recaro CL6710 business class seat to be installed on its A330neo fleet.

The Portuguese airline is the launch customer for the new A330-900neo long-haul aircraft and will be equipping the cabin entirely with Recaro aircraft seats.

“In addition to ergonomic comfort, the CL6710 stands out with its light weight and efficient use of space in the cabin,” says Dr. Mark Hiller, Chief Executive Officer and Shareholder of Recaro Aircraft Seating.

The CL6710 offers each passenger a separate area with direct access to the aisle. Seat length, seat width and the various possible seat positions, such as the relax position and the completely flat bed, invite passengers to stretch out and rest.

When changing position, the seat moves at a predefined angle so the passenger's body is optimally supported in the seat at all times. A six-way adjustable head rest supports the neck even if the passenger is wearing headphones. The seat’s design enables customer-specific features, such as the storage compartments selected by TAP.

“We opted for the CL6710 since it offers our passengers an outstanding living space while being highly efficient,” highlights Trey Urbahn, Chief Commercial Officer, TAP Portugal.

In 2016, Recaro Aircraft Seating delivered more than 6,600 lightweight seats to TAP for the retrofitting program for short and medium-haul A319, A320 and A321 aircraft. With the new configuration, ideal ergonomics and lightweight design from Recaro, additional seats can fit into the cabin – with enhanced passenger comfort.
