IndiGo, the largest airline in India by passengers carried and fleet size announced that it has selected RECARO aircraft seating BL3710 for its new A321N and A320N aircraft.
By doing so, the low-cost carrier will be the first in the Indian subcontinent to provide the best-selling economy class seat. According to a statement issued by the airline beginning in January 2023, the BL3710 economy class seat will be deployed on 75 Airbus aircraft.
Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO at Recaro Aircraft Seating said;
“Our new partnership with IndiGo demonstrates our commitment to not only building a distinct product with a sustainable lifecycle, but also our comprehensive approach to customer service. The BL3710 is an excellent product that will serve both IndiGo and its passengers for many years.”
A Red Dot Design Award winner and iF Design Award winner, the BL3710 was specifically created for short and medium-haul flights. The combination of the ergonomic design and weight of less than 10kg per pax has made the economy class seat a bestseller since it first entered the market in 2019.
Mr. Sanjay Kumar, Chief Strategy & Revenue Officer of IndiGo said;
“As we expand our network, domestically and internationally to cater to the travel demand, the comfortable seats will be key to upgrading the customer experience onboard IndiGo.”
IndiGo has grown to become India’s largest passenger airline since its establishment in 2006. Today, the low-cost carrier’s fleet of nearly 280 aircraft flies passengers to 74 domestic and 25 overseas destinations.
