Having previously ordered the ZIMmagic (PC-01) Premium Economy seat from ZIM Aircraft Seating, Lufthansa Group has placed an order for the new-generation ZIMprivacy (PC-02) seat to be installed on 19 of its flagship Boeing B747-8s and an additional nine SWISS Airbus A330s.

The seats will come with a customised specification for trim and finishes so they can enable Swiss and Lufthansa to maintain their individual cabin branding. The ZIMprivacy has set a new standard for comfort and privacy in the Premium Economy class. The highly innovative seat features a mechanical kinematic enclosed within a fixed backrest shell structure and includes enhanced privacy with an integrated privacy shield creating improved personal space for all passengers. The ZIMprivacy also includes a variety of other amenities such as 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. 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,” says Sven Achilles, CEO of ZIM Aircraft Seating. ZIM Aircraft Seating, a global leader in premium aircraft seating, is headquartered in Immenstaad am Bodensee, Germany.
