The airline and Recaro cooperated on customizations for the seat to make it unique to Air China, while still taking advantage of Recaro’s underlying design and engineering expertise. Among the customizations, Air China included a Chinese-style lamp in each suite, upper stowage with a uniquely-crafted drawer, specially-made privacy dividers, and an Air China customized inner soft-touch back-shell.
“We enjoyed our close collaboration with Air China on this program,” explained Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO of Recaro Aircraft Seating. “It resulted in a unique seating product that will be appreciated by so many travelers. Although we take great pride in the hard work that goes into our seat designs, we always remember that it is the passengers who drive our innovations forward.”
Air China is the first carrier in Asia to fly the CL6720.
In addition to the updated business class cabin, Air China also selected Recaro to provide the PL3530 for its premium economy passengers and the CL3710 for economy class passengers.
