Avianca orders nearly 3,200 aircraft seats from Recaro

Recaro Aircraft Seating has, for the first time, received an order from a South American airline for its CL3710 seat. Avianca placed an order for 3,170 units of Recaro’s CL3710 model of aircraft seat, which is an economy class seat specially developed for long-haul flights.

“We are extremely pleased that we have been awarded this contract by Avianca – our first installation of CL3710 seats for a South American airline – and for the opportunity to contribute to a particularly comfortable experience for Avianca’s passengers with our CL3710 model,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, Chief Executive Officer and Shareholder of Recaro Aircraft Seating.

The airline from South America, founded in 1919, will receive approximately 3,200 units of Recaro’s CL3710 model of aircraft seat, which weighs under 12 kilograms

“The new CL3710 is a perfect fit for our modern aircraft cabins and will offer our passengers an even higher quality travel experience on our flights. This lightweight seat not only sets new standards when it comes to flexibility and reliability but also with regard to cost-effectiveness and efficiency. We are very much looking forward to working with Recaro,” said Miguel Montoya, Operations and Technical Senior VP, Avianca.
