Geven’s SuperEco lightweight seat supports Wizz Air’s sustainability initiatives aimed at reducing emissions by 25 percent throughout the next decade

Geven’s long-time customer Wizz Air has selected the seating manufacturer to outfit its fleet of 20 A321 XLR aircraft with its Economy Class SuperEco seat. The partnership brings the airline’s total of Geven-equipped aircraft to 232.

We are excited to be receiving Gevens newest technology ultra-lightweight seats in 20 of our new A321NY XLR aircraft,” said Owain Jones Managing Director of Wizz Air in a November 2021 press release. “These seats will contribute to Wizz Airs sustainability initiatives aiming at reducing fuel burn and thus reducing emissions by further 25 percent in the next decade. We are convinced that thanks to their ergonomic design and thin, however comfortable design, these new seats will also win the hearts of our passengers.”

SuperEco lightweight seat by Geven

The Economy Class SuperEco seat is designed to cater to the most essential passenger needs, offering maximum comfort and living space within the cabin, reads the Geven website. The company describes the lightweight seat as simple, easy to maintain and ideal for narrow-body, high-density aircraft while offering a modern experience in the Economy cabin.

“Its simplicity and basic nature do nothing to diminish either the comfort or the fresh and young twist of this new Italian design,” said Geven, adding that the seat features the most shin and knee clearance at the lowest pitch in its category.

Geven said in the release that the SuperEco seat was just what Wizz was looking for as it continues to expand its fleet.
