Recaro equips short and medium-haul aircraft from TAP with SL3510 and BL3530 seats

TAP, the Portuguese airline, is updating cabin equipment for its short and medium-haul aircraft with seats from Recaro Aircraft Seating, the German aircraft seat manufacturer. To date, some aircraft out of the 41 A320 family included in the retrofit program from the company’s Airbus fleet have been equipped with Recaro’s SL3510 and BL3530 seats. Recaro is delivering over 6,600 lightweight seats to the Star Alliance member for cabin retrofitting of its A319, A320 and A321 aircraft.

The premiere with the new Recaro seats on board took place on October 30, 2016. TAP’s “Gago Coutinho” Airbus A319 completed its first flight with the new cabin equipment from Lisbon to Luxembourg. Layout optimization allows twelve more seats to fit into the cabin of the A319 and A320 aircraft. With the TAP A321 aircraft’s new cabin configuration, there are an additional 16 seats on board.
