Expliseat's TiSeat

Expliseat tells PAX Tech Air France has selected its TiSeat for the cabin renewal program of its Embraer 190 fleet operated by its regional subsidiary, HOP!

The aircraft will be fitted with a new model of the TiSeat, making Air France the launch customer for the product. The series of seats is set to be unveiled at the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) in Hamburg this May.

“Partnering with Air France—known through the airline industry for its high-class brand, aesthetics and engineering standards—marks a pivotal moment for Expliseat in our pursuit of innovation. Together, we’re setting new standards in cabin design. This collaboration underlines Air France confidence in our technology and the commitment to delivering exceptional experiences for all passengers,” says Amaury Barberot, CEO of Expliseat.

The newest iteration of the TiSeat builds upon Expliseat’s patented titanium and composite fiber frame, utilizing its existing lightweight properties for enhanced sustainability. Through collaboration with Air France, this evolution aims to not only reduce seat weight but also to bolster durability, comfort, and design improvements, promising a more robust and enjoyable experience. The seats will be produced at Expliseat’s factory in Angers, France.

Details of the new TiSeat remain confidential until its official unveiling in May, but Expliseat hints at a “new human-centric design philosophy."
