With service scheduled to begin in spring 2023, SunExpress will be the first airline to introduce the Z200 Economy Class seat on the Boeing 737-8 aircraft.

SunExpress has selected the Z200 seat, the latest addition to Safran Seats' Economy short-and medium-haul range, to be fitted on its 33 line-fit Boeing 737-8 aircraft. This seat is a perfect combination of comfort, lightness and durability. The Z200, which has been customized in the airline's colors, has a large tray table for comfortable dining and a literature pocket for reading materials. Passengers can also recline the seat for greater comfort.

By selecting the “Efficient” version of the Z200, SunExpress is choosing one of the lightest seats on the market and thus reducing its carbon footprint by eliminating more than 12,000 tons of CO2 emissions over the next ten years.

“The comfort of our guests and a sustainable long-term strategy are clearly our focus," adds Nicole Haginger, Product and Customer Journey Senior Manager at SunExpress. "With these new seats, which will be in use as of 2023, we are combining both. I am sure that customers will feel even more comfortable on board with us in the future. At the same time, being so light, the seats will make a noticeable contribution to reducing emissions."

Vincent Mascré, CEO of Safran Seats, commented: “We are delighted to be fitting SunExpress' new Boeing 737-8 cabins with the Z200, our new-generation of Economy seat with a performance that benefits passengers, operators and the environment alike. It is also an opportunity for us to pursue our close to ten-year relationship with this valued, long-standing partner. On behalf of Safran Seats, we wish SunExpress and its passengers every success and a pleasant journey.”
