SmartSky - Finally WifI that Wows

Press Release hub banner blue with title in red white and blueJuneyao Air revealed its brand new Airbus A320neo aircraft cabin during its first flight on December 15.

The Shanghai-based carrier chose to equip its full cabin with Recaro seats: the BL3530 SWIFT will be offering passenger comfort in economy class, while the CL4710 seats will do the same in business class. Flying with the latter seat model on board also makes Juneyao Air the first airline to be featuring this seat in the APAC region.

The two brands joined forces before to equip Juneyao’s flagship Boeing 787-9 fleet with Recaro CL3710 economy class seats.

“We are thrilled to be the first airline in the region to debut the Recaro CL4710 seat to our passengers. Our discerning flyers can look forward to a top-of-the-range business class seat that offers them greater comfort and premium features,” says Mr. Wang Junjin, Chairman of Juneyao Air. “The customized design will support Juneyao Air branding, while the comfort features Recaro is renowned for ensures an excellent passenger experience.”

The Recaro CL4710 business class seat delivers both advanced comfort and outstanding functionality for short- and medium-haul flights. With its ergonomic design and several configuration possibilities, this seat sets all-new standards. Multiple storage options make the inflight experience even more enjoyable for passengers.

An individually adjustable calf rest also contributes to enhanced wellbeing. The resting position with its generous recline, footrest and customized cushions provide true relaxation and enhanced comfort. Conveniently integrated into the in-arm table is a tablet holder with a power outlet for passengers’ personal electronic devices. A flexible headrest adds even more comfort as it enables you to lean your head against it sideways when seated in a resting position.

Business Class CabinThe Recaro BL3530 SWIFT, meanwhile, combines outstanding passenger comfort and ingenious lightweight design for Juneyao’s economy class.

Passengers nowadays want to remain connected at all times, even while on board an airplane. The contemporary BL3530 SWIFT seat answers that need. It features smartly designed solutions which facilitate the handling of personal electronic devices such as a tablet holder, a pocket for stowing as well as a power supply to charge electronic devices.

Furthermore, contemporary style elements and additional features make this seat an excellent choice for the short- and medium-haul flights Juneyao Air will be undertaking with it.

Economy cabin“We are delighted to have Juneyao Air as the launch customer for our CL4710 business class seat in Asia,” says Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO and Shareholder of Recaro Aircraft Seating. “It is the second time they chose Recaro to equip the full cabin of their aircraft and we look forward to continue our successful collaboration and further strengthen our partnership.”
