Press Release hub banner blue with title in red white and blueGeven Aircraft Seats and Interiors announces the delivery of the first shipset of Essenza and Comoda seats which will outfit S7 Airlines’ Economy Class and Business Class cabins on A320neo family aircraft.

The delivery is part of a larger partnership with S7 Airlines. Started in 2017 with a retrofit program, Geven provided Economy Class seats — Piuma EVO — and Business Class seats — Comoda — on A321 aircraft.

In 2019, the partnership with the prestigious airline company led to an order of 16 linefit shipsets on A320s and A321s.

A total of approximately 3,000 pax of Essenza and 130 pax of Comoda will be delivered in the next few years.

“S7 Airlines has been an ambitious client since the very beginning and we are proud to be their seats provider once again,” says Alberto Veneruso, Managing Director at Geven. “Grateful for S7 Airline’s trust, we look forward to strengthen our collaboration in the future and provide innovative seats solutions which will enhance comfort onboard”.

Essenza offers sustainable, cost efficient and comfortable Economy Class seating. Renowned for its comfort, functionality and aesthetic features which enhance the passenger experience, Geven’s lightweight and efficiently designed seat focuses on durable and reliable parts which minimize fuel consumption and maintenance costs.

“Working together with S7 Airlines’ team on the first linefit project has been a fantastic opportunity for Geven. The result of their cooperative, enthusiastic and professional contribution to this project will be significant for future collaboration opportunities,” says Giovanni Vitiello (PMP)®, Head of Program Management at Geven.

The Economy Class cabin of the A320neo has been equipped with Essenza. Geven’s ergonomic seat has a reclining backrest of up to 5”, which provides comfort on board.
