Shandong Airlines orders 6,000 seats for its new Boeing 737 MAX fleet

Shandong Airlines has placed an order for 6,000 units of Recaro’s CL4400 and BL3530 seats, which it will use to outfit its 34 new shipsets of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. This is the third collaboration with Recaro since 2013 when Shandong Airlines was the launch customer for the Recaro site in China.

Shandong Airlines, the first customer of Recaro’s production facility in Qingdao, is once again outfitting its new aircraft with seats from Recaro Aircraft Seating. The order for 6,000 units is divided into Recaro’s BL3530 model of economy class seat and the CL4400 model of business class seat. The order is valued at a two-digit million amount in euro.

Dr. Mark Hiller, Chief Executive Officer and Shareholder of Recaro Aircraft Seating, is particularly proud of the new order from the company’s Chinese partner: “We are glad that we were able to further expand our collaboration with a key customer in the Chinese market. Our third collaboration since 2013 reflects the trust and high recognition of our brand and products. We are excited that we can further expand our good cooperation and partnership as two strong neighbours and brands in the Shandong province.”
