Recaro Aircraft Seating has revealed a luxury seat for Emirates first premium economy cabin. The customized seat design was a result of a collaboration between Recaro and Emirateswhich began in April 2019 at a seat show held in parallel to the Aircraft Interiors Expo.

The ergonomic shape of the seat (PL3530) finds its roots in the premier automotive seat design that Recaro has been perfecting over the past 115 years and sets trim and finish-wise a new standard in premium economy representing the best of “Made in Germany.”The fusion of ingenious engineering and the luxury expected when flying Emirates has set new standards for the premium economy class experience. 

For Emirates, the PL3530 design team prioritized state-of-the-art features like the ones found in upscale German cars and combined it with the spirit of Dubai. The seat features a bronze trim, a distinct finish, and a cream colored leather dress cover, complete with a one-of-a-kind stitching. First deliveries of the seats began in Q4 2020, and at least 250 shipsets will ultimately be installed on Emirates’ fleet. 

“I am very honored that we have been selected to equip the long-range aircraft of Emirates with our premium economy seat,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO and shareholder at Recaro Aircraft Seating. “We set out to build a seat with a premium touch and feel, and it has been a great pleasure for the whole Recaro team. We are grateful for the trust Emirates has put into our knowhow and look forward to continue our successful partnership.”

With a focus on the inseparable combination of functionality, ergonomics and aesthetics, the new Emirates seat pulls from its automotive heritage by offering a wider backrest with side support. The seat’s ergonomics offers best of comfort with its recline and movablecalf rest enabling a highly relaxed lazy position, additional storage compartments, andsix-way adjustable headrest also contribute to passenger sleeping comfort. 

Sir Tim Clark, President Emirates said: “It was a delight to partner with Recaro on our premium economy seats. Emirates’ specifications are always bespoke and of the highest quality standards, and the experienced team at Recaro did a remarkable job in bringing to life our requirements.”
