Air Canada Express operates Jazz's DASH 8-400s

Expliseat has signed a purchase agreement with Jazz Aviation LP (“Jazz”) and Air Canada. The Canadian airline has selected the lightweight TiSeat 2 V for 25 of its DASH 8-400s.

The product comes in two different trims and finishes for Preferred Economy and Standard Economy class seats. It features a PED holder, recline and 3D cushion for an elevated passenger experience.

“We are very proud to announce our new top-tier customer, Jazz – operator of Air Canada Express and longstanding partner of Air Canada, both known for the quality of their product offering. By ordering 25 cabins, this airline endorsement is contributing to Expliseat’s current growth trajectory. We thank Jazz for their strong vote of confidence in our product, which has been designed for the comfort of passengers and the objective of decarbonization,” said Amaury Barberot, Chairman and CEO of Expliseat.

The TiSeat 2 V saves up to 360 kilograms per aircraft, reducing CO2 consumption for the airline. The seat is made of titanium and carbon for low maintenance and long-term reliability.

“The investment in lighter and more sustainable seats for our Dash 8-400 fleet, which are fully customized to our rigorous Air Canada Express passenger experience standards, will reduce fuel consumption and lower emissions, demonstrating our commitment to minimizing environmental impact and a greener future for aviation,” said Randolph deGooyer, President of Jazz.

The agreement was signed at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany.
