Deutsche Aircraft selected Acro Aircraft Seating to supply Series 9 economy class seats for the D328 family of aircraft, which includes the new D328eco and a retrofit option for the proven D328 turboprop and D328 jet.The new Acro Series 9 seats will provide a comfortable on-board experience for passengers flying with the D328eco as well as the D328. Ideal for airlines travelling regional and short-haul routes, these seats have a wider seat pitch, a robust yet lightweight design, require less maintenance and are more reliable. 

Nico Neumann, Chief Operations Officer at Deutsche Aircraft, commented on the choice of Acro seating for the D328 family: “Acro Aircraft Seating has been selected based on a multifunctional assessment of innovation, sustainability, quality and economic factors. Besides serving our D328eco in a baseline 40 PAX configuration, the selected seats will be available as a retrofit option for our D328 turboprop and D328 jet, enhancing the passenger experience of our operating aircraft. This selection is a significant step within the D328eco development schedule, as we are now completing the interior selection for the cabin, cargo and cockpit. I look forward to a long-term relationship and many happy customers.”

Neil Cairns, Chief Executive of Acro Aircraft Seating, said: “We are delighted at this latest endorsement for our versatile Acro Series 9, particularly as Deutsche Aircraft is so widely respected in the industry, not only for its commitment to the very best in engineering design, quality and innovation, but also for its far-sighted sustainability policies.  The Acro Series 9 delivers on every aspect, providing quantifiable and tangible benefits alongside elegant aesthetics and supreme comfort. It’s a perfect partnership and we’re excited about contributing to the ongoing success story at Deutsche Aircraft.”
