As part of a larger Indigo Partners’ deal agreed back in 2020, JetSMART’s brand new Airbus A321neo aircraft took to the skies on August 15, the first aircraft to fly with 240 pax of the latest in Recaro’s economy-class seating designs, the SL3710. Over the next five years, 11,000 of the seats will be installed on JetSMART aircraft.
The modular SL3710 economy-class seat has a weight of approximately eight kilograms, which helps to minimise operational costs while also supporting JetSMART’s sustainability goals. Created specifically for short-haul flights, the slim, ergonomic design of the seat optimises passenger space while still maintaining a high degree of comfort.
The seat is ultralight and uses recycled leather, meeting Jetsmart’s requirements for its ultra-low-cost model and desire for sustainability.
Chile-based JetSMART was founded in 2017 initially as a domestic airline, but has expanded into the South American market and now flies 43 routes to 25 destinations in six countries across the continent.Email Post to a Friend
