With Alaska Airlines adding additional Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to their fleet, naturally, they will need more seats. Once again, Alaska Airlines have turned to Recaro Aircraft Seating to provide seats for their new aircraft.
Alaska Airlines have added 13 additional shipsets- containing the CL4710 (used in First Class) and BL3530 seats (used in Main Cabin)
Deliveries of the aircraft with the CL4710 business class seats and the BL3530 economy class seats are slated to begin in July 2021. These will be integrated during the outfitting of the aircraft.
The CL4710 was launched by Alaska Airlines. This seat is designed for domestic and shorter international routes. The seat is a recliner with a calf rest adjustable in length and angle, various storage options, cocktail tables and holders for electronic devices both on the folded and unfolded table. Power at the seat is offered too.
The BL3530 offers passengers premium comfort and amenities such as recline, power at the seat, document storage options as well as having a low weight which contributes to reduced fuel consumption and minimizes the aircraft’s carbon footprint.
Dr Mark Hiller, CEO and Shareholder at Recaro Aircraft Seating said
“I’m glad that Alaska has appreciated the quality of our robust CL4710 and BL3530 seats to select them on several different occasions. We are inspired by their mission to enhance the passenger journey while remaining committed to sustainable solutions,”
“If 2020 proved anything, Recaro and Alaska both face challenges head-on, and we are privileged to have called them a partner for the past decade.”
Amber Simonsen, Director of Product Development & Delivery at Alaska Airlines said
“Guests love our new seats. From the adjustable footrest and cup holder in first class, to the conveniently placed charging ports and tablet holder in the main cabin, there so many thoughtful details in the seat design for everyone.”
