“We are delighted and proud to welcome Air Premia on board as a new customer,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO and Shareholder of Recaro Aircraft Seating. “With almost 50 years of experience in aircraft seating, we deliver premium quality for every segment in the aviation industry. That combined with innovative design for ultimate passenger comfort is the key to our and Air Premia’s success.“

"As a hybrid airline we promise our passengers a combination of comfort and quality at a reasonable price,” says Dr. Jong Chul Kim, CEO of Air Premia. “Recaro allows us to live up to that promise by delivering the best possible comfort features, ergonomic and efficiency. This ensures our passengers the best travel experience, but also helps us to be as cost-efficient as possible by reducing fuel burn and hence costs."
