Hamburg: Gulf Air has selected German manufacturer Recaro to supply its CL3710 economy class aircraft seats for the airline's 10 new Boeing 787-9 aircraft and 29 Airbus 320/321neo aircraft. The contract, which is valued at over 35 million euros, was signed at the Aircraft Interiors Expo today.

“Gulf Air guests rightly expect an exceptional level of service and quality on board our aircraft – and as we expand and modernise our fleet, Recaro’s economy class seats fit perfectly into our new cabin concept, guaranteeing a pleasant travel experience for our passengers and standardising our product across our short and long-haul fleet,” said the Bahrain carrier’s CEO Maher Salman Al Musallam.

Gulf Air has deployed Recaro seats on the airline’s short-haul routes in both economy and business class since 2009. The airline said that reliability, design and comfort played an important role in Gulf Air once again opting for Recaro as seat supplier.

The multi-award-winning CL3710 economy class seat uniquely features a flexible and individually adjustable headrest, state-of-the-art IFE systems and extra legroom for passengers. Its modular lightweight construction is said to also offer a great variety of options to aircraft manufacturers and airlines.
Gulf Air’s first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and Airbus 320neo deliveries are scheduled for 2018 and the airline’s A321neo aircraft delivery will start in 2020.
