WestJet takes to the air with Recaro
Debut of business and economy class seats for Canadian airline
Schwaebisch Hall, Germany/Calgary, Canada, 2 April 2019 – WestJet has debuted their new Recaro CL4710 business class and CL3710 economy class seats. The Canadian airline bought 4,700 aircraft seats from Recaro last year to equip 20 Boeing aircraft, including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Boeing 737. The seats will serve short, medium, and long-haul routes.
The airlines CL3710 seats debuted on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner flight from the Toronto Pearson International Airport to YYC Calgary International Airport.
On WestJet’s 737 fleet, the CL4710 business class seat will fly on short and medium-haul routes and feature a variety of stowage compartments, a tablet holder, and an adjustable leg rest for length and angle.
For long-haul routes, WestJet will deploy the CL3710 economy class seat. At less than 12 kilograms, the award-winning seat sets new standards in terms of weight and comfort and is one of the lightest products in its class. The ergonomic, six-way adjustable headrest perfectly adapts to passengers of different heights and statures while ensuring optimized neck support. Short-haul routes will feature Recaro’s BL3520 seats throughout the entire Boeing 737 cabins.
