The Recaro Aircraft Seating (Recaro) CL6720 customised for Air China took to the skies for the first time in the cabin of an Airbus A350 en route from Beijing to Chengdu on January 20. In addition to the new seat, the aircraft included Recaro PL3530 seats in the premium economy section and CL3710 seats in the economy section of the plane.
The CL6720 has been christened the ‘minisuite in the sky’, having been first unveiled in 2020. The seat has additional privacy features and premier living space while combining a lightweight structure with an efficient seat configuration which will help carriers reduce their carbon footprint as well as save on fuel costs.
The customized Air China seat includes a Chinese-style lamp in each suite, upper stowage with a uniquely crafted drawer, specially made privacy dividers, and an Air China customised inner soft-touch back-shell. Recaro and Air China worked together to carry out a significant comfort enhancement and functional optimisation plans, incorporating feedback from both design teams.
Originally established in 1988, Air China is headquartered in Beijing and has a fleet of 750 aircraft that fly passengers to 150 cities in 25 countries. Recaro Aircraft Seating is a global supplier of premium aircraft seats for airlines and OEMs and is one of the market leaders in economy-class seating.
