Shipsets are rolling off the production lines at the new Acro headquarters in Crick, Northamptonshire, U.K. as, post-pandemic, the company has picked up pace on fulfilment of a 5,670 pax order for flyadeal, the new low-cost airline owned by Saudi flag carrier, Saudia.

The airline, based at the King Abdulaziz International Airport, Jeddah, expects to double in size this year and has fleet growth firmly in view to service its fast-expanding network to domestic and international destinations across the Middle East.

The Acro seating contract is for line-fit of thirty Airbus A320neo aircraft, with options for a further twenty of the model. Acro Series 6 seating will be used throughout the aircraft, with a premium version, complete with extra comfort covers and styling detail, on the first four and two over-wing exit rows. A new Fixed Recline version of Series 6 was exclusively engineered for flyadeal, with 30” pitch for the first four rows, 36” pitch for two OWE rows and a 28 to 29” pitch range in the remainder of the cabin; maximising use of cabin space without compromising passenger comfort.
