Lebanon-based Middle East Airlines selected the CL5710 and CL3710 seats for its business class and economy class, respectively

Schwaebisch Hall, Germany, October 8, 2020 – Recaro Aircraft Seating has been selected by Middle East Airlines (MEA) to equip its fleet of 11 Airbus aircraft with CL3710 and CL5710 seats. Delivery started on July 11, 2020, and MEA most recently received the A321 MSN 10.000 aircraft.

“We are delighted with the opportunity to outfit MEA’s new A321neo aircraft. The ergonomic design of our seats helps create comfortable travel for all passengers, which is a top priority for MEA,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO and Shareholder of Recaro Aircraft Seating. “With the A321neo expanding MEA’s route capabilities, the CL5710’s power features make it the perfect fit for their business class travelers.”

Equipped with a unique lumbar support system and power controls, the CL5710 business class seat aims to offer passengers a smooth and comfortable flight. The modern design offers more storage space, a leg rest with an integrated foot bar, and an extendable cocktail tray table. With a seat pitch of 50 inches passengers will experience enhanced comfort during their short or medium-haul flight.

The CL3710 sets the standard for a long-haul economy class seat, due to its six-way adjustable headrest, its connectivity feature, and being the lightest seat in its class. The award-winning modular design combines a variety of customization possibilities with premium comfort.

Mohamad A. El Hout, Chairman of Middle East Airlines, “I am more than proud of our new aircraft that beautifully demonstrates our new standards with 28 seats in a 2 x 2 configuration for our new business class on the A321neo. Next to the highly professional and reliable partnership with Recaro who greatly supported making our ‘pioneering’ attitude with a new cabin interior come true.”
