ATR adds new 'Titanium Seat' from Expliseat, with Air Tahiti as launch customer

ATR and Expliseat signed (05-Apr-2016) a buyer-furnished equipment (BFE) agreement for the supply of Expliseat's 'Titanium Seat', an all new seat type for ATR aircraft. The lightweight seat offers savings of up to 300kg compared to current ATR '-600 series' cabin configurations. The new seats also feature only 30 parts, reducing their maintenance costs. The Titanium seats are provided as an option for new aircraft, and are also available for all ATR aircraft types in retrofit. According to ATR the agreement offers customers and operators a broader choice when configuring their aircraft cabin layouts. Air Tahiti will act as the launch customer, with entry into service of the Titanium seats on a retrofitted ATR aircraft in May-2016. The seats will be available on new ATR aircraft produced at the ATR manufacturing plant by the end of 2016. [more - original PR]
