Acro Aircraft Seating has won a contract with Pegasus Airlines to line-fit fifty A321neo aircraft with Series 9 fixed back seats.

Delivery of the seats is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2025, with the inaugural order completed by the end of 2029. There is potential for fifty additional aircraft to follow, the press release said.

The Series 9 in vegan leather will be pre-reclined to 21.5 degrees for optimal passenger comfort and will feature custom trim and finish. The seta colour is a dark navy with touches of vivid red and bold yellow, colours associated with Pegasus Airlines’ livery.

“We are delighted to have been chosen as the preferred partner of the dynamic and forward-thinking Pegasus Airlines and we’re looking forward to creating, with the Pegasus team, a distinctively bespoke version of our versatile Series 9,” said Neil Cairns, CEO of Acro. “The Series 9 has been hailed, with justification, as a game-changer; it’s known as the Fixed Back, which truly optimizes passenger living space, even in high-density cabins.”

Cairns also said that the attributes of the Series 9 seat are ideal for the current marketplace where competitive weight, costs and reduced part counts are sought after.

“Inevitably, it’s the comfort of this class-leading seat which gives it its Unique Selling Point,” he said. “Generous pax width has been achieved without compromise to either armrest or aisle width, so that passengers enjoy outstanding stretch-out legroom even at a reduced pitch. We’re confident that it will be a huge hit for Pegasus Airlines and their passengers when it takes to the air.”
