Recaro Aircraft Seating is entering the regional jet market with its first Embraer installation. The BL3710 and SL3710 seats will be retrofitted on the Embraer E190 and line fitted in Brazil on the Embraer E195-E2 for KLM Cityhopper, the regional arm of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

“Expanding into the regional jet market is a tremendous opportunity for Recaro to grow our capabilities and strengthen our customer base,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO and Shareholder of Recaro Aircraft Seating. “Embraer has been a fantastic party through this experience. I have great confidence in this move and our ability to rise to a newchallenge.”

KLM Cityhopper is the first regional jet customer for Recaro. Slated for a Q1 2021 delivery, the BL3710 and SL3710 seats are positioned in a hybrid layout on the E190 and E195-E2 KLM Cityhopper regional jets. The E195-E2 is configured with 132 seats, while the E190 has 100 seats.

The lightweight SL3710 combines an ergonomic design and durable parts to create a comfortable seat with a reduced total cost of ownership for airlines. Specifically createdfor short and medium-haul flights, the BL3710 offers a six-way adjustable headrest, additional back support, and the modular seat design ensures a streamlined cabin layout and minimal maintenance.

“Embraer worked closely with KLM Cityhopper and Recaro to certify the Buyer Furnished Equipment seats for our EJet platforms”, said Fernando Antônio Oliveira, Vice President Programs, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “With Recaro seats now certified for EJetplatforms, a greater selection of seat products will be available for customers on request, further increasing customers’ options for enhancing the passenger journey.”

Headquartered in Brazil, Embraer has been manufacturing aircraft since 1969. Embraer is a leading manufacturer of aircraft up to 150 seats and has sites in the Americas, Africa, Asia and Europe.
