Iberia’s A350 fleet will be kitted out with the CL6720 business class seat

Iberia has become the launch customer of Recaro’s CL6720 Business Class seat which features privacy doors, following its introduction into commercial service.

An Iberia A350 took flight from Madrid to Buenos Aires in January with the CL6720, which was considered a “mini-suite in the sky” when it was first unveiled in 2020. Each CL6720 features sliding doors for extra privacy, ample living space with a 79-inch-long full-flat bed and is configured in a honeymoon layout with electronic full-length privacy dividers for the center seats and direct aisle access. Each seat projects the seat number on the cabin floor for added convenience and is outfitted in signature Iberia colours. In addition, the Front Row Monuments for the Iberia business class cabin were developed and produced in-house by Recaro.

The CL6720 has sliding doors and was referred to as a 'mini-suite' on its launch in 2021

The CL6720 is also designed for dignified in- and out-access to the seat for passengers with reduced mobility.

A total of 31 CL6720 seats are outfitted in the A350 business class cabin. The premium economy and economy cabins are also fully equipped with the Recaro PL3530 and the CL3710, respectively.

“The CL6720 on Iberia’s A350 will take the business class experience to the next level, thanks to the seat’s comfort amenities and generous living space,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO of Recaro Aircraft Seating in a March 20 press release. “Our partnership with Iberia has created a unique product that will serve passengers for many years to come while keeping carbon emissions and maintenance costs low.”

“Recaro has been a perfect partner in elevating our customers' travel experience with greater privacy, comfort, warmth, and more space for personal items. A significant improvement in our on-board that our customers are already valuing very positively,” said Javier Sánchez-Prieto, CEO of Iberia in the same release.
