We’re heading over to Recaro Aircraft Seating now, where the company has been awarded an order for the BL3510 for Philippine Airlines.
The Recaro BL3510 economy class seat was selected by Philippine Airlines for a retrofit of a selected number of Airbus A320 aircraft. Delivery of the spare passenger seats began this month.
As a part of the Philippine-based airline’s fleet modification strategy, the overhaul involves the installation of a 180-seat cabin configuration on each of the 11 A320 aircraft that are destined for short-haul high-traffic domestic routes to be operated by the airline’s PAL Express subsidiary.
The selected A320 aircraft were originally equipped with a mixed 156-seat configuration for Asian regional flights of the mainline carrier PAL, which now deploys larger Airbus A321 aircraft with business, premium and economy class seating on said regional routes.
