HAMBURG—Kuwaiti carrier Jazeera Airways will be the first Middle East-based airline customer to have HAECO Cabin Solutions’ Vector seating on its fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft.
The agreement, announced April 5 at the Aircraft Interiors Expo, will also make Jazeera the first airline globally to select Vector seats for the Airbus narrowbody aircraft type. The carrier, founded in 2005, operates seven A320-200 variants.
Delivery of the first shipset is scheduled for September. HAECO will oversee manufacture of the single-aisle economy seats, along with reconfiguration engineering and obtaining both FAA and EASA approval for their installation through the supplemental type certificate process.
The seating for the A320s will also include built-in USB in-seat power.
Speaking at the unveiling of the deal, Mark Peterman, HAECO Americas president of cabin solutions, confirmed that HAECO will offer its retrofit services as part of the Vector seat package.
