Schroth Safety Products has signed an agreement with the Indigo Partners group to provide passenger seatbelts for Airbus A320neo and A321neo aircraft operated by its five airlines.
The programme represents 100,000 Schroth ‘AirLite’ passenger belts and is the largest single order in the history of the Florida-based safety product manufacturer.
Since 2015, Schroth has grown its commercial passenger seatbelt business significantly, making it a global leader in the market for aircraft seatbelts and restraint systems and the restraints will be fitted to aircraft flown by Wizz Air, Frontier, Volaris, JetSMART and Enerjet.
Following the announcement, Schroth CEO Martin Nadol commented: “Safety through technology is the core value of our business. We are very excited to be given the opportunity to work with Wizz Air and the Indigo Partner airlines for this very important and large project.”
European low-cost airline Wizz Air operates a fleet of 149 Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft. The company was recently named one of the world’s top ten safest airlines by airlineratings.com, the world’s only safety and product rating agency.
Wizz Air’s corporate communications manager Paulina Gosk said: “The safety of passengers is our number one priority. We provide service which allows them to travel safely and comfortably. We are always interested in further development of our service, so we decided to join forces with Schroth Safety Products. We look forward to cooperating on the development of comfortable travelling.”
