Lufthansa Group has placed an order for nearly 24,000 Recaro Aircraft Seating (Recaro) CL3710 and CL3810 seats for economy-class cabins in approaching 100 combined aircraft in the Lufthansa and SWISS fleets. Delivery has been slated to commence in Q4 this year.
The CL3810 economy-class seats are 15% lighter in comparison to their predecessor, which will save the carriers thousands of pounds in fuel costs and optimize cabin performance. They will be retrofitted to SWISS Airbus A330-300 and Lufthansa Boeing 747-8 aircraft.
The seats will be dressed in Lufthansa’s signature colours, while the modular design of the CL3710 will minimise maintenance and keeps total cost of ownership low. The six-way adjustable headrest with neck support enhances sleeping comfort for the passenger, while the seat’s amenity flap is built to store personal smart devices for extra convenience. Both seat types have been built with sustainability in mind and feature lightweight structures, thus reducing carbon emissions for the aircraft.
