LIFT announces first 'Tourist Class Seating' delivery
LIFT by EnCore announced today that its first 737 Tourist Class Seating entered into service on LOT Polish Airlines as part of a delivery of six aircraft.
Tourist Class Seating is a collaboration between LIFT and Boeing, first announced in April 2016, to develop seats that are ergonomically optimized and designed for the Boeing Sky Interior, as well as for maintainability and reliability. LIFT's 737 Tourist Class Seating is the widest 737 economy class seat on the market.
Since then, 737 Tourist Class Seating has been designed, engineered, certified, and successfully received regulatory certification. Last month, Boeing received the seats on time and ready for installation onto LOT's first 737 MAX.
"LOT, as one of the fastest growing airlines in Europe, is proudly the first legacy European airline to fly brand new Boeing 737 MAX 8 and at the same time the first one to offer this exceptional travel experience with new LIFT by EnCore seats onboard. Our passengers already appreciate the unique level of their comfort. Seats manufactured by LIFT perfectly suits to our strategy of being perceived as the most modern, comfortable and hospitable airline at the European sky" – says Rafał Milczarski, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines.
"This is an important milestone for LIFT, as it marks our first delivery of 737 Tourist Class Seating," says LIFT by EnCore's CEO, Tom McFarland. "EnCore has consistently built a reputation of reliability and dependability, showing our dedication to follow through on all promises – LIFT is continuing this tradition."
