Recaro is to develop a catalogue of seats for Embraer's E1 and E2 aircraft

Recaro Aircraft Seating and Embraer are to develop a Supplier Furnished Equipment (SFE) catalogue of seats for E1 and E2 aircraft. The SFE catalogue will include the BL3710 and SL3710 economy class seats, as both linefit and retrofit configurations.

Development of the SFE catalogue will begin in Q3 2023, with seats becoming eligible for offers in mid-2024.

“Our entrance into the regional jet market has generated great feedback and our seats now being featured in an SFE catalogue will help us take our customer support to the next level,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO of Recaro Aircraft Seating and Recaro Holding in a June 20 statement.

The Recaro catalogue will be based on BL3710 and SL3710 seats which are tailored to short and mid-range flights. BL3710 comes with a variety of optional features, including in-seat power supply system (ISPSS), tablet holder, unique six-way headrest and a maximum 5-inch recline. SL3710 will feature options for ISPSS and two backrest angles. Different plastic colors are also available in combination with a spectrum of dress cover colors.

“Joining forces with Recaro Aircraft Seating means Embraer can offer more alternatives to our customers, making our products even more attractive,” said Roberto Chaves, Chief Procurement Officer at Embraer in the statement. “This collaboration reinforces our commitment to enhancing the passenger experience and delivering unparalleled value to our clients. The Recaro seats add another dimension to our interiors, more choice and less weight for our customers, and more comfort and amenities for their passengers.”
