The first A330-800neo of Uganda Airlines went into service with Geven’s Piuma AQ Economy and Comoda AQ Premium Economy Class seats.

With a fully integrated IFE by SPI with 10.1-inch video screen, Piuma AQ also features a headrest, in-arm table, power supply, lightweight design and six-inch recline. The seats have a coat hook, and a literature and amenity pocket. Orange and bronze leather makes up the seat cover and the headrest is personalized for Uganda Airlines. The Economy Class cabin seats 210 passengers in a 2-4-2 configuration.

Uganda Airlines’ Premium Economy Class seats 28 passengers outfitted with Comoda AQ installed in a 2-3-2 configuration. Comoda AQ is equipped with an 8-inch backrest.

The leather central console design features a soft touch 4.5-inch armcap and does not sacrifice foot and leg space. The central console integrates a PED holder along with an adjustable four-way headrest, with differential friction on headrest lobes for easy adjustment and proper head support.

The Premium Economy seat of Geven’s family line also features soft touch 2-inch armrest for disabled passengers. The full-integrated IFE by SPI has an 11.6-inch monitor. Each seat is equipped with a rigid bottle holder, separate coat hook, power supply, lower literature and amenity back mounted pocket. The in-armrest table is in a single leaf configuration. The colors of Africa inspire the customized design cushions. It is a horizontal striped fabric with black fine stitching and a harvest gold leather cover for headrests.

“Working together with Uganda’s team for the first time was a huge inspiration for Geven. The enthusiasm and outstanding integration of Uganda, Airbus and Geven teams have played a significant role in this successful delivery. We have worked closely with a cooperative approach from the early stages of this nine month process. Grateful for Uganda Airlines’ trust, we look forward to continue and strengthen our collaboration in the future” said Alberto Veneruso Managing Director of Geven.

“We are excited about the delivery of the A330-800neo which strengthens our fleet capabilities and introduces the desired comfort standards for our long-haul operations. We are proud of our beautifully equipped plane which features a three class layout, including a fully lie-flat business class” said Cornwell Muleya, CEO of Uganda Airlines.
