Stelia Aerospace’s new generation business class seat, OPAL, is set to enter into service in the first half of 2019 with an African carrier as a launch customer. The seat was on display at this week’s AIX aircraft interiors event in Hamburg.

Offering a fully customisable seat environment, OPAL is designed for efficiency and tailored for luxury. It is a forward facing, full aisle access staggered seat, offering a full flat bed with an average length of 80” in a fully optimised cabin configuration, and the flexibility of a minimum pitch of 40.5”. The standard bed width is 26.2’’. An enhanced bed option provides a sleeping length of up to 87’’ for all passengers.
Depending on the installed configuration, up to four additional passenger seats can be installed over existing configurations.
Thierry Kanengieser, VP Cabin Interior, for Stelia, said: “This new business class seat has been developed bearing in mind the high level of customisation that our customers expect, while not compromising on layout efficiency.”
