Turkish leisure carrier SunExpress has selected Safran Seats’ Z200 economy product for line-fit on 33 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft.
The airline has selected the ‘Efficient’ version of the Z200, which Safran says is one of the lightest seats on the market and will help reduce its carbon footprint by eliminating more than 12,000 tons of CO2 emissions over the next ten years.
SunExpress product and customer journey senior manager Nicole Haginger says: ”The comfort of our guests and a sustainable long-term strategy are clearly our focus. With these new seats, which will be in use as of 2023, we are combining both. At the same time, being so light, the seats will make a noticeable contribution to reducing emissions.”
The Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines joint venture already operates nine Boeing Max 8s.
