Cebu Pacific, the Philippines’ leading carrier, has placed orders with Recaro Aircraft Seating for the SL3510 seat which has been selected for the airline’s brand-new fleet of 30 Airbus A321neo aircraft.
This makes it the first airline in the Asia-Pacific region to place orders for Recaro’s SL3510 seat.
“We have always been a firm advocate of innovative and economic solutions that ensure the best travel experience for our passengers,” said CEB President and CEO Lance Gokongwei.
“It is with this mission in mind that we have decided to equip our upcoming brand-new Airbus A321neos with Recaro SL3510 seats. The ergonomic seats will not only contribute to our valued guests’ comfort on-board, but also help us reduce fuel burn with their lightweight, cost-efficient design. We look forward to providing even more affordable and enjoyable flights to all our customers.”
CEB expects to grow its 56-strong fleet to over 80 aircraft, with an expansion plan that includes orders for 30 new A321neos, between 2017 and 2021.
The Recaro SL3510 is one of the lightest economy-class seats on the market and at around 9 kg weighs around 40 percent less than conventional economy-class seat models.
A thinner and much lighter innovative netting material Instead of foam forms the core of the seat’s backrest.
The netting material ergonomically conforms to the shape of the passenger’s spine, making the seat very comfortable.
