Acro Aircraft Seating has launched the Series 6LC economy class seat, aimed primarily at the narrowbody fleets of low-cost carriers. The company has lined up a major low-cost carrier as a launch customer and will be revealing the airline’s identity in the near future.

The seat has a “minimalist design aesthetic” and reduced part count – all part of Acro’s quest for simplicity with enhanced comfort, derived from the curved seat back that unlocks space at knee level.

Series 6LC features include a pre-reclined fixed back, with an upper literature pocket, sliding table and lightweight armrests. Additional options include comfort seat covers, crew step, lower literature pocket and USB A & C provisioning.

“Series 6LC is another example of Acro’s commitment to achieving an attractive seating solution for our airline customers, especially the hardworking narrowbody fleets of regional or low-cost carriers,” says senior vice-president sales, Alan McInnes.

“In an Airbus A320 family configuration, our innovative Xtra Comfort feature offers extra width to the middle seat, resulting in significant improvements in passenger comfort in what is generally viewed as the least popular seat in the row. Our overall seat widths also optimise cabin operations by achieving a wider aisle for faster loading and unloading of passengers.”
