Building from the company’s unprecedented start-up success, this show will see the unveiling of new options & seat models, the ‘Hawk Experience App’, and a bespoke styling service. These are the next steps in Mirus’s drive to use real and measured innovation to deliver the most complete and competitive seating package on the market.
New Hawk Models and Options
The show will see the launch of a range of models, options and services that expand on the company’s Hawk platform. Mirus will be revealing an automotive-style range of packages and options designed to suit the individual needs of airlines today. The focus of the show again remains the Hawk SR (short range) model. On display will be 3 differently configured Hawk SR (Short Range) seats:
- An entry-level model featuring a fixed, ergonomically optimised seatback and e-leather trim

- A high-end model, featuring an exclusively designed and integrated USB, plush headrests and Alcantara trim accents.
Technology – The Hawk Experience App
Alongside this, Mirus is also launching the Hawk Experience, an automotive / interior-design-inspired application that enables users to configure and contextualise their own Hawk seats. This app also features Augmented Reality (AR) technology, allowing you to view your Hawk seat using a physical target. This will be available to visitors to the Mirus stand (B10).
