Gulf Air, the Kingdom of Bahrain’s national carrier, has appointed German aircraft manufacturer Recaro Aircraft Seating to supply Recaro 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 €35m, was signed at this year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg.
“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 Maher Salman Al Musallam, Gulf Air Chief Executive Officer.
Since 2009, Gulf Air has deployed Recaro seats on the airline’s short-haul routes in both economy and business / Falcon Gold class. Reliability, design and comfort played an important role in Gulf Air once again opting for Recaro as seat supplier.
The multi-award-winning “made by Recaro” economy class seat uniquely features a flexible and individually adjustable headrest, state-of-the-art IFE systems and extra legroom for passengers.
