Lufthansa Group has selected ZIM Aircraft Seating’s new generation of premium economy seat for its 19 Boeing B747-8 and nine SWISS Airbus A330 aircraft.
The ‘ZIMprivacy’ seating features a mechanical kinematic enclosed within a fixed backrest shell structure, and an integrated privacy shield that allows for “improved personal space for all passengers”.
The seating also includes individually adjustable armrests, cocktail table, single piece meal table, personal reading light, ambient mood lighting and an extra-large IFE screen.
“The award of this project to ZIM Aircraft Seating is a very good sign for the future direction of commercial aviation in the long-lasting Covid-19 crisis and indicates a recovery in flight activities,” said ZIM Aircraft Seating’s CEO Sven Achilles.
“The entire ZIM Aircraft Seating team is very proud that we have hit the right nerve in the market with our new product development of the ZIMprivacy, and that with Lufthansa and SWISS we were able to convince two strong partners as launch customers.”
ZIM Aircraft Seating’s new generation of seating will be customised with specification and trim and finish variants for Lufthansa and SWISS to enable each airline to maintain their own cabin branding.
