Airlines take a seat with B/E Aerospace

B/E Aerospace has been awarded over $70m to provide main cabin retrofit and new-buy seating programs for approximately 250 aircraft for US Airways, Frontier Airlines and Malaysia-based AirAsia.



The program awards for US Airways include retrofitting Airbus A320 aircraft and equipping a number of new-buy single-aisle aircraft with coach class and first class seating.



The Frontier Airlines programs include retrofitting Airbus A318 and A319 aircraft as well as equipping a number of new-buy Airbus A320 aircraft with coach class seating.



The AirAsia program award is a follow-on order for coach class seating for a number of additional new-buy Airbus A320 aircraft.



All three programs are for seating products based on B/E Aerospace’s Spectrum platform, which offer a variety of pre-certified options, enabling airlines to differentiate their seats without extended lead times.
