Iberia is the launch customer for the new Recaro CL6720 business class seat with sliding doors, which is being installed on the airline’s Airbus A350s.
A total of 31 CL6720 seats are outfitted in the A350 business class cabin. The premium economy and economy cabins are also fully equipped with the Recaro PL3530 and the CL3710, respectively.
Each CL6720 features sliding doors for extra privacy, ample living space with a 79-inch-long full-flat bed, and is configured in a honeymoon layout with electronic full-length privacy dividers for the centre seats and direct aisle access. Each CL6720 projects the seat number on the cabin floor for added convenience and is outfitted in signature Iberia colours.
“Recaro has been a perfect partner in elevating our customers’ travel experience with greater privacy, comfort, warmth, and more space for personal items,” said Javier Sánchez-Prieto, CEO, Iberia. “A significant improvement in our onboard that our customers are already valuing very positively.”
The lightweight design of the CL6720 has made it one of the lightest business-class seats on the market and is aligned with the sustainable objectives of both Recaro and Iberia. The CL6720 is also designed for dignified access for passengers with reduced mobility.
“The CL6720 on Iberia’s A350 will take the business class experience to the next level, thanks to the seat’s comfort amenities and generous living space,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO, Recaro Aircraft Seating and Recaro Holding. “Our partnership with Iberia has created a unique product that will serve passengers for many years to come while keeping carbon emissions and maintenance costs low.”
