Recaro Aircraft Seating CL6720 business class seat with doors took flight in Iberia A350 cabin on the route from Madrid to Buenos Aires in January. A total of 31 CL6720 seats are outfitted in the A350 business class cabin. The premium economy and economy cabins are also fully equipped with the Recaro PL3530 and the CL3710, respectively. Iberia is the launch customer for the new business class seat.

Each CL6720 features sliding doors for extra privacy, ample living space with a 79-inch-long full-flat bed, and is configured in a honeymoon layout with electronic full-length privacy dividers for the center seats and direct aisle access. Each CL6720 projects the seat number on the cabin floor for added convenience and is outfitted in signature Iberia colors. In addition, the Front Row Monuments for the Iberia business class cabin were developed and produced in-house by Recaro.

Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO of Recaro Aircraft Seating and Recaro Holding, commented:“The CL6720 on Iberia’s A350 will take the business class experience to the next level, thanks to the seat’s comfort amenities and generous living space. Our partnership with Iberia has created a unique product that will serve passengers for many years to come while keeping carbon emissions and maintenance costs low.”

Javier Sánchez-Prieto, CEO of Iberia, said: “Recaro has been a perfect partner in elevating our customers´ travel experience with greater privacy, comfort, warmth, and more space for personal items. A significant improvement in our on-board that our customers are already valuing very positively.” 

A winner of the Special Mention at the 2021 Focus Open Awards, the CL6720 was considered a “mini-suite in the sky” when it was first unveiled in 2020. The lightweight design of the CL6720 has made it one of the lightest business-class seats on the market and is aligned with the sustainable objectives of both Recaro and Iberia. The CL6720 is also designed for dignified in- and out-access to the seat for passengers with reduced mobility.

Founded in 1927 in Madrid, Iberia is the flagship carrier of Spain and is a part of the Iberia Group. The group  flies 25 million passengers annually to more than   130 destinations in 42 countries on its fleet of 156 aircraft.
