Turkish Airlines' new fleet of medium-haul, single-aisle aircraft will feature Rockwell Collins’ MiQ® seating platform in its Business Class cabins.

Ninety-two shipsets for the airline's A321neo aircraft and 77 shipsets for its 737 MAX aircraft are now underway.

“We are very excited to introduce our latest business class seats in our new generation 167 narrow body aircraft," said Ahmet Olmuştur, Turkish Airlines' Chief Marketing Officer, in an announcement today. "As we continue to take firm steps to increase our passengers’ comfort to an even higher level, we now place those state-of-the-art seats, having special features such as seat back inflight entertainment screens, retractable privacy panels, accessible personal stowage and power outlets, in our new medium-haul fleet. With keeping a close eye into customer expectations, we will continue to present the highest standards with our cabin and seat designs in the future."

Mark Vaughan, vice president and general manager for Interior Systems at Rockwell Collins, also noted: “The modular design elements of the MiQ seating platform allowed us to work closely with Turkish Airlines to provide a customized configuration that includes a new privacy feature to ensure that business class passengers enjoy an optimal flight experience. In addition, we designed custom leather dress covers to fully reflect the airline’s brand.”
