J&C Aero, an international aviation centre for innovation in cabin transformation, has been contracted by the flag carrier of Poland – LOT Polish Airlines – to produce more than 3,000 highly durable leather seat covers for the carrier’s Embraer 170/175/190/195 fleet.
The contract covers the production of a full seat cover set, covering the headrest, literature pocket, backrest and the bottom part of a passenger seat. All covers will be produced from fine Scottish leather sourced from Muirhead, a global leader in the responsible manufacturing of high-performance leather.
In addition, J&C Aero will develop a set of modification documents that are required for installing and proper maintenance of the new covers. J&C Aero’s team of engineers and cabin designers will also support the Polish flag carrier during the initial seat cover installation process that is due to be conducted at LOT’s base at Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW).
J&C Aero and LOT have a long-standing history of cooperation that, among others, includes a recently completed project to provide almost 6,000 seat covers for the carrier’s wide-body Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet.
