ATR to Offer The Titanium Seat; Confirms Air Tahiti as Launch Customer

ATR and the France-based aircraft seat manufacturer Expliseat, have signed a buyer-furnished equipment (BFE) agreement for the supply of a new ATR aircraft seat type: the Titanium Seat.

The agreement will give ATRs customers and operators more 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. This will enable airline 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.

Air Tahiti is the launch customer of this new cabin solution, with an entry into service of the Titanium seats on a retrofitted ATR aircraft in May 2016.

The seats will be available on new ATR aircraft produced at the ATR manufacturing plant by the end of the year.

David Brigante, ATRs Senior Vice-President Procurement said that the aim is to provide our operators with a broader scope of customization possibilities. The signature of this contract perfectly fits into our philosophy of continuous improvement of our aircraft, its performances and the services we bring to the 200 airlines operating ATRs worldwide.
