Recaro Aircraft Seating has received additional orders to outfit Alaska Airlines’ new B737 MAX aircraft with 13 shipsets of the CL4710 and BL3530 seats.

Alaska is the first carrier to order more Boeing B737 MAX aircraft after it was cleared by the FAA.

According to Recaro, the BL3530 offers passengers premium comfort and innovative amenities, and its low weight appeals to customers because it contributes to reduced fuel consumption and minimises the aircraft’s carbon footprint.

“I’m glad that Alaska has appreciated the quality of our robust CL4710 and BL3530 seats to select them on several different occasions. We are inspired by their mission to enhance the passenger journey while remaining committed to sustainable solutions,” said Recaro Aircraft Seating’s CEO and shareholder, Mark Hiller.

“If 2020 proved anything, Recaro and Alaska both face challenges head-on, and we are privileged to have called them a partner for the past decade.”

Alaska was the original launch customer for the CL4710, which was designed specifically for domestic and shorter international flights. The business class seat is characterised by its “unique level of comfort and functionality”, as well as its flexible equipment options.

“Guests love our new seats. From the adjustable footrest and cup holder in first class, to the conveniently placed charging ports and tablet holder in the main cabin, there so many thoughtful details in the seat design for everyone,” added Alaska Airlines’ director of product development and delivery, Amber Simonsen.
