Recaro Aircraft Seating Extends SWIFT SFE Deal with Airbus

: Feb 25, 2021 - : 12:47 pm

Recaro Aircraft Seating has extended its contract with Airbus for the delivery of SWIFT economy class seats.

The SWIFT program was created to target lessors and airlines that require a short lead-time of four months or less via a SFE process.

Since 2016, Recaro has equipped Airbus A320 Family aircraft with predefined economy class seats BL3530 since 2016. The new deal will enlarge the supplier furnished equipment (SFE) catalogue with the newest RECARO products.  Recaro, it may be recalled, has seating solutions on all Airbus commercial aircraft models.

“Airbus is a long-time partner of Recaro, and we are pleased with this chance to continue growing our SWIFT program,” said Mark Hiller, CEO and Shareholder of Recaro Aircraft Seating. “The industry is an ever-changing situation, and programs like this demonstrate our agile capabilities and the desire to collaborate with customers and suppliers on innovation.”

Recaro currently offers predefined and pre-certified versions of its BL3530, BL3710, and CL4710, and provides various dual-class cabin configurations of the SWIFT family of seats. Optional seat features range from comfort packages and in-seat power solutions to tablet holders and ELeather colors. The SL3710, which the company claims is the lightest seat on the market,  will join the Airbus SFE catalogue soon.
