The leading turboprop aircraft manufacturer ATR and the Francebased aircraft seat manufacturer Expliseat signed a buyer-furnished equipment (BFE) agreement for the supply of a new ATR aircraft seat type: the Titanium Seat.

The agreement, inked on the occasion of the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, enables ATR’s customers and operators to have a broader choice when configuring their aircraft cabin layouts.

The new Titanium seat allows airlines to save up to 300 kg when compared to current ATR ‘-600 series’ cabin configuration. These new seats will enable to get substantial fuel savings and to further enhance payload capacity and operational flexibility at short runways or at hot and high environments. In addition, the new Titanium seats feature only 30 parts per seat, thus reducing their maintenance costs. The Titanium seats are provided as an option for new aircraft, and are also available for all ATR aircraft types in retrofit.
