22 January 2019

STELIA Aerospace has been selected by Turkish Airlines, “the airline that flies to more countries than any other in the world”, to supply its bespoke Business class seats to be fitted on the newly ordered 25 B787-9 and 25 A350-900 aircraft. Deliveries will begin in Summer 2019.

This new Business Class seat, “Full Flat, Full Access, Full Privacy”, specifically tailored for Turkish Airlines, offers many enhancements, providing customers with more comfort during flight:

– Real full-flat long beds
– A generous seat pitch of 44”
– Generous footwell
– Adjustable dividers between alternate rows of centre seats (full-height and mid-height) to customise the level of privacy
– Lowerable armrests.

Other features include more stowage space, integrated reading lights and a large meal table.

The interior trimmings of each seat have also been given a touch of luxury with Alcantara padding, a material used to fit the interiors of sports cars.

Passengers also enjoy a more personalised and interactive experience in terms of Inflight Entertainment, with an 18” full high-definition touchscreen monitor. They also benefit from the convenience of direct aisle access.

We are very involved in customising our products at every step of design, so as to meet our customer’s needs and expectations. This new seat offers comfort combined with modern styling”.
