Recaro Aircraft Seating was tapped to equip Qatar Airways with the brand-new CL3810 economy class seat. Starting at the end of 2022, twenty shipsets of the CL3810 will be installed on the new A321neo fleet.“Partnering with Qatar Airways is always energizing because they expect nothing less than excellence in all aspects of their business,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO and Shareholder at Recaro Aircraft Seating. “We anticipated the CL3810 being a game-changer for the economy class seat segment, which has been confirmed now that Qatar Airways, a five-star airline, has selected it.”

Qatar Airways is one of the first airlines to select the CL3810, which was unveiled in 2020. The customized seat features offers a wider backrest for increased comfort and privacy, as well as  a six-way headrest with adjustable neck support feature that can only be found on Recaro seats. 

The newest addition to the economy class portfolio, the CL3810 is a combination of innovative ergonomic technology, premium comfort cushions with layered foam, and lightweight smart engineering. The seat’s unique shape was designed to support the passenger’s points of tension, which reflects the award-winning design of the RecaroAutomotive sport seat. Compared to its predecessor, the CL3810 offers an additionalinch of living space, a more advanced articulated seat pan, and a wider backrest to enhance row-to-row privacy.

Sustainability was top-of-mind when developing this seat. The seat weight was reduced by more than 15% when compared to the CL3710, which can save airlines thousands in fuel costs and optimize cabin performance. All Recaro seats are comprised of long-lasting and durable materials that help extend the life cycle of seats and minimize the total cost of ownership for airlines.

“We are pleased to be one of the first global airlines to select the CL3810 Economy Class seat – Recaro’s latest, sustainable and advanced seating product,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker. “Established nearly two decades ago, our long-term partnership with Recaro Aircraft Seating reflects our confidence in the supplier’s exemplified designs and technology.”

Qatar Airways continues to invest in state-of-the-art product offerings and services to ensure that its customer experience remains the best in the world. The airline was recently named Airline of the Year by the 2021 AirlineRatings, and also clinched the Best Middle East Airline, Best Catering, and Best Business Class awards. Qatar Airways also became the first global airline to achieve the prestigious 5-Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating by international air transport rating organization, Skytrax.
