Acro Aircraft Seating reports firm orders into Q4 2014
UK-based passenger aircraft seat manufacturer Acro Aircraft Seating reported a highly successful 2013 and a very promising start to 2014. The company announced firm orders into the fourth quarter of 2014 with recent confirmed orders for the retrofitting of five Spirit Airlines’ Airbus A319 aircraft with its Superlight seat this spring and installation on 25 new A321 and A320 deliveries from 2015. The deal which was worth an estimated £6m marks the company’s second major US client and equates to 5000 economy class seats. With 35,000 seats currently flying, Acro Aircraft Seating anticipates that it will double the number of seats in service within 18 months.
