Schwaebisch Hall, Germany, 18 April 2019 – Air Premia, the brand new South Korean hybrid airliner, will receive its first B787-9 mid 2020. The cabin, both economy and premium economy class, of this brand-new aircraft will be equipped with Recaro seats. This order makes Recaro the first aircraft seating company to deliver to Air Premia. At the same time, it marks the latest addition to the growing list of orders for Recaro’s innovative CL3710 economy class seat. For ultimate comfort in premium economy class Air Premia combines this seat with the PL3530 also created by Recaro.
