Recaro seats for SAS

Passengers on SAS European flights operated by Boeing 737-800 will find new and more comfortable seats from the start of next year as German company Recaro begins to deliver the first batch of an initial 1,484 order.

After orders from the Lufthansa Group, SAS is the latest Star Alliance member to choose this market-acclaimed Recaro seat.

“We are pleased to welcome SAS as a BL3520 customer,” says Axel Kahsnitz, the CEO of Recaro Aircraft Seating.  “The airline chose our latest Economy Class seat, which sets the standard for short-range flights in terms of both design and comfort.”

SAS says that it was particularly convinced by the significantly lighter construction as well as the extra space it gives passengers.  Recaro managed to reduce the weight of this new model by 3kg – making it about 30% lighter than comparable seats.  It offers passengers more living space due to a leaner, space-saving backrest combined with a higher literature pocket.  Instead of being placed in the passenger’s knee area, it is located above the tray table which ensures an outstanding level of passenger comfort. www.recaro-as.com
