ATR sign contract with Expliseat for new seat type

Posted 6 April 2016 · Add Comment

ATR has signed a buyer-furnished equipment (BFE) agreement with Expliseat for a new ATR aircraft seat type, the Titanium seat.

ATR’s customers will now have a wider choice when configuring their aircraft cabin layouts, as the seats will be provided as an option on new aircraft, and for types in retrofit.
 
The Titanium seat can save up to 300kg on cabin configuration, enabling fuel saving, enhanced payload capacity and operational flexibility.
 
The seats feature only 30 parts per seat, reducing maintenance costs.
 
“The aim is to provide our operators with a broader scope of customization possibilities. The signature of this contract perfectly fits into our philosophy of continuous improvement of our aircraft, its performances and the services we bring to the 200 airlines operating ATRs worldwide,” said David Brigante, ATR’s senior vice president, procurement.
 
Air Tahiti is the launch customer of the seat, with entry into service later this month.
