AlsimRECARO Aircraft Seating has been chosen by Malaysia Airlines to furnish its new Airbus A330neo aircraft with the CL3810 economy class seat. Malaysia Airlines will be the first carrier in Southeast Asia to feature the CL3810.

The CL3810 is the latest addition to the RECARO seating portfolio and has garnered recognition as the winner of both the iF Design Award and the Focus Open Gold Award. The lightweight seat was designed to enhance the passenger experience and operational efficiency. More than 5,000 CL3810 pax are set to be delivered for a linefit on Malaysia Airlines’ A330neo aircraft, starting in Q3 2024 through to 2028.

Built with sustainability in mind, the CL3810 is nearly 15% lighter than its predecessor, contributing to significant fuel savings for airlines while optimising cabin performance. The seats will be dressed in a customised trim and finish, incorporating Malaysia Airlines’ signature songket motif.

Passengers can expect a spacious and ergonomic seating experience, with features including seat  pitch ranging from 31 to 36 inches, 6-inch recline, a 13.3-inch in-flight entertainment system, and individual power access at each seat with type USB-C and USB-A ports. Seat cushions with layered foam and ergonomic technology, a six-way adjustable headrest, and a Comfort+ seat bottom with articulation will further enhance the passenger experience on long-haul flights. In addition, the unique slim backrest design will provide an extra inch of knee space.

“We are thrilled to once again collaborate with Malaysia Airlines, a carrier known for its commitment to providing an exceptional travel experience,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO of RECARO Aircraft Seating and RECARO Holding. “The CL3810 is a testament to our dedication to passenger comfort and aesthetic design, and we are proud to see it become an integral part of Malaysia Airlines’ A330neo.”

“We are excited about the induction of the A330neo into our fleet, which will not only provide modernity but also a significant enhancement in cabin comfort and practicality for our valued customers. Among the many highlights to anticipate is the introduction of the RECARO CL3810 Economy Class seats, designed with ergonomic precision and innovative features to ensure optimal comfort and functionality; akin to a long-haul aircraft. We look forward to setting a new standard on what it means to deliver unparalleled customer satisfaction onboard Malaysian Hospitality,” said Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi, CEO of Airlines from Malaysia Aviation Group.
