The Recaro Aircraft Seating CL6720 business class seat took its first flight in Air China’s A350 cabin on the route from Beijing to Chengdu on January 20, 2023. In addition to the CL6720 seat, Air China also selected the Recaro PL3530 and CL3710 for the A350’s premium economy and economy cabins, respectively. The “minisuite in the sky” was first unveiled in 2020 and was built to enhance the travel experience with additional privacy features and premier living space. With the lightweight structure, combined with the efficient seat configuration, the CL6720 can save airlines thousands in fuel costs and help reduce their carbon footprint.

The Air China customized seat features include a Chinese-style lamp in each suite, upper stowage with a uniquely-crafted drawer, specially-made privacy dividers, and an Air China customized inner soft-touch back-shell.

 Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO of Recaro Aircraft Seating commented: “The new CL6720 entering into service for the first time in Asia is a special moment for Recaro. We enjoyed our close collaboration with Air China on this program, and it resulted in a unique seating product that will be appreciated by so many travelers. Although we take great pride in the hard work that goes into our seat designs, we always remember that it is the passengers who drive our innovations forward.”

This business class seat is a product of passenger demand and most recently earned a Special Mention at the 2021 Focus Open Awards. Recaro and Air China worked together to carry out a significant comfort enhancement and functional optimization plans, incorporating feedback from both design teams.

Originally established in 1988, Air China is headquartered in Beijing. Today, the award-winning airline has a fleet of 750 aircraft that fly passengers to 150 cities in 25 countries.
