Air Serbia has become the launch customer for AJW Technique Interiors’ ‘SkyLeather’ range of seat coverings.
SkyLeather is a sustainable, manmade material offering “significant” weight savings over natural leather, according to AJW Technique Interiors. “Its durability and easy clean surface reduces airlines’ direct maintenance costs and its lightweight construction reduces fuel costs,” the company added.
SkyLeather is produced by the company’s manufacturing partner Autostop Aviation.
The synthetic, 100 per cent Polyurethane material will be installed onto Air Serbia’s fleet of A320 aircraft.
“We have worked closely with the AJW Technique Interiors design team over the last 12 months and are delighted to have selected SkyLeather for our A320 platform,” said Air Serbia’s CEO Jiří Marek. “This innovative product will bring significant fuel savings and also contribute to Air Serbia’s commitment to introduce sustainable products wherever possible across the organisation.”
AJW Technique Interiors is part of the AJW Group, the independent aircraft component parts, repair and supply chain solutions provider.
AJW Group’s chairman and CEO Christopher Whiteside commented: “We are excited to have been chosen by Air Serbia, a major legacy carrier, and look forward to supporting their drive towards sustainability.”
