The airline company passengers will benefit of Titanium seat, the 4kg per passenger economy-class seat by Expliseat, by summer 2014.

In a public conference at the Aéroclub de France with the aeronautic community, Benjamin Saada, Jean-Charles Samuelian and Vincent Tejedor, the directors of Expliseat; and Antoine Ferretti, chief executive officer at Air Méditerranée, formalized their collaboration: beginning in Summer 2014, the Titanium Seat will be flying onboard Air Méditerranée.

Thanks to state-of-the-art, one-of-a-kind technology (10 exclusive patents in all) combining lightness, strength, and comfort, the Titanium Seat provides multiple benefits to both airlines and their passengers. 

Working with a network of French manufacturers in the automobile and aeronautics industries, Expliseat produces seats of quality, at high-speed production levels.

This technology reduces seat weight by at least 50% for a fuel saving of 3% to 5%. This corresponds to a saving of $300,000 to $500,000 per year per aircraft.

Titanium seat achieves good performance in robustness and maintenance costs with its combination of titanium-composite structure and ease of assembly (30 parts as opposed to the 500-piece average for a standard seat). It is one oh the most durable seat on the market, withstanding up to 100,000 usage cycles, equivalent to 10 years of operation.

The 2-inch thick backrest is closely tailored to the human back for good comfort with additional legroom, while the technical textile absorbs impact and movements from passengers in the row behind.
