IndiGo picks Recaro seats for new Airbus aircraft
The low-cost airline will be the first to feature the Economy Class seat in the Indian sub-continent. The BL3710 Economy Class seat will be installed on 75 Airbus aircraft starting from January 2023.
“Our new partnership with IndiGo demonstrates our commitment to not only building a distinct product with a sustainable lifecycle, but also our comprehensive approach to customer service,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO at Recaro Aircraft Seating in today’s announcement. “The BL3710 is an excellent product that will serve both IndiGo and its passengers for many years.”
A Red Dot Design Award winner and iF Design Award winner, the BL3710 was specifically created for short and medium-haul flights. The combination of the ergonomic design and weight of less than 10 kilograms per passenger has made the Economy Class seat a bestseller since it first entered the market in 2019.
“As we expand our network, domestically and internationally to cater to the travel demand, the comfortable seats will be key to upgrading the customer experience onboard IndiGo,” said Sanjay Kumar, Chief Strategy and Revenue Officer of IndiGo.
Since its founding in 2006, IndiGo has grown into India’s largest passenger airline. Today, the low-cost carrier operates to 73 domestic and 24 international destinations on its fleet of more than 275 aircraft.
