RECARO SL3510 seats from RECARO to be introduced by Peach in 2019
Developed with a pre-reclied ergonomic design, the backrest for the SL3510 model is fixed at a 15-degree angle. The slim seat structure will make it possible to secure more leg space for all passengers than everbefore, which will allow Peach to offer them more comfort, including periods of takeoff and landing.
It was in spring 2017 that Peach organized a project team comprising female employes from all departments within the company to select new seats for its new aircraft. The team consisted of employees in their 20s and 30s—the same age group as its key passengers—who made overall evaluations on aspects such as comfort, durability, and comments from passengers who have flown Peach to date, based on which it decided to introduce the SL3510 model from RECARO.
Peach will be the first LCC in Northeast Asia to introduce pre -reclined seats.
Look forward to more from Peach as it sets out to pave the way as a first mover for theJapanese aviation industry to deploy innovative initiatives in its bid to become the leading LCC in Asia.
