Juneyao Air revealed its new A320NEO aircraft during its first flight on December 15. The full cabin is equipped with Recaro seats: theBL3530 SWIFT in economy class, and the CL4710 seats in business class. Recaro has previously supplied CL3710 seats for the economy class of Juneyao’s flagship Boeing 787-9 fleet.
The privately-owned Chinese airline, based in Shanghai, is the launch customer for Recaro’s CL4710 business class seat in the APAC region.
“We are thrilled to be the first airline in the region to debut the Recaro CL4710 seat to our passengers. Our discerning flyers can look forward to a top-of-the-range business class seat that offers them greater comfort and premium features,” says Mr. WangJunjin, Chairman of Juneyao Air. “The customized design will support Juneyao Air branding, while the comfort features Recaro is renowned for ensures an excellent passenger experience.”
The Recaro CL4710 business class seat delivers comfort and functionality for short- and medium-haul flights with ergonomic design, several configuration possibilities, multiple storage options, and individually adjustable calf rest for enhanced wellbeing. The resting position offers generous recline, footrest and customized cushions provide for relaxation. The in-arm table has an integrated tablet holder with a power outlet for passengers’ personal electronic devices. A flexible headrest gives passengers support to lean their heads when resting.
“We are delighted to have Juneyao Air as the launch customer for our CL4710 business class seat in Asia,” says Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO and Shareholder of RecaroAircraft Seating. “It is the second time they chose Recaro to equip the full cabin of their aircraft and we look forward to continuing our successful collaboration and further strengthen our partnership.”
The Recaro BL3530 SWIFT combines passenger comfort and lightweight design for Juneyao’s economy class. The seat is designed for comfort on medium- and long-haul flights and addresses passengers’ desire to be connected at all times by including a tablet holder, a pocket for stowing personal electronic devices, as well as a power outlet to charge them.
