Recaro Aircraft Seating (Recaro) has revealed a luxury seat for Emirates’ first premium economy cabin. The customized seat design was a result of a collaboration between Recaro and Emirates, which began in April 2019 at a seat show held in parallel to the Aircraft Interiors Expo.
The ergonomic shape of the seat (PL3530) finds its roots in the premier automotive seat design that Recaro has been perfecting over the past 115 years and sets trim and finish-wise a new standard in premium economy representing the best of “Made in Germany.” The fusion of ingenious engineering and the luxury expected when flying Emirates has set new standards for the premium economy class experience.
For Emirates, the PL3530 design team prioritized state-of-the-art features like the ones found in upscale German cars and combined it with the spirit of Dubai. The seat features a bronze trim, a distinct finish, and a cream colored leather dress cover, complete with a one-of-a-kind stitching. First deliveries of the seats began in Q4 2020, and at least 250 shipsets will ultimately be installed on Emirates’ fleet.
