ATR operators now have the option of saving up to 300kg over current -600 cabin layouts, by choosing a titanium seat. A buyer-furnished equipment (BFE) agreement deal signed today at Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg between the turboprop maker and French seat maker Expliseat will give ATR customers access to the new seats before year-end on aircraft produced by ATR.

Meanwhile, launch customer Air Tahiti will be flying the seats from next month on a retrofitted ATR.

Expliseat launched its first titanium seat for Airbus A320s in 2013 – weighing at just 4kg.
