easyJet’s new seats

Flying on easyJet’s Airbus A320s is going to get even more relaxing as the airline begins to take delivery of planes fitted with the Recaro SL3510 seat. The first aircraft arrived at Milan last week, where it will be based.  Gatwick will the home for the next from the Toulouse production line.

With the new seats the opportunity has been taken to give the cabin a more modern feel. The cover is grey with orange accents and is complemented by a new carpet and specially designed easyJet orange aisle lighting.  The seat optimises a combination of foams to provide the best comfort and support for the passenger.  The backrest is at a 15-degree angle for a relaxed seating position and the slimmer backrest provides more space.

The new seats also offer greater simplicity with over 100 fewer parts.  The Recaro developers have focused on the seat’s ergonomic qualities.  The netting in the aluminium frame conforms to the shape of the passenger's spine.  Because of the slim backrest, the seat also offers a maximum of space, meaning that passengers enjoy a very comfortable flight.
