Air Dolomiti renews interior with Geven Essenza seat

By Jayson Koblun

Air Dolomiti has tapped Geven for Essenza seats to be installed starting December 2021 to March 2022

Air Dolomiti, Lufthansa Group’s Italian airline, has announced the selection of Geven’s Essenza seat for its retrofit program.

The Essenza, an Economy Class seat, was the first seat to be selected for equipping aircraft across the different airlines of Lufthansa Group. The seat will have trim and finish that matches Air Dolomiti’s color scheme of blue and turquoise.

Marzio Caneva, Vice President Technical Operations of Air Dolomiti, said in a press release that the lower weight of the seats will help reduce aircraft fuel consumption and have a positive impact on the environment.

Air Dolomiti has ordered 15 shipsets for its E195 aircraft, which will be installed starting December 2021 until March 2022. The first aircraft retrofitted is expected to fly in January of 2022.

“The seat’s backrest is made of a single piece of carbon fiber with both structural and aesthetic functions. Thanks to this special design, no additional fairing or plastic shrouds are necessary and only the foam and the cover are added, resulting in a lower number of parts to be managed and reduced weight to be carried,” said Geven in a press release.

Air Dolomiti and Geven started working together in 2017 on projects with Deutsche Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines.
