Air Europa S.A.U. selected Venture, the JAMCO’s standard business-class seat model, for its aircraft. The seats will be installed on sixteen Boeing 787-9s (32 per aircraft) to be introduced to the airline’s fleet, with the first aircraft scheduled for delivery in September 2019. Air Europa is the second company to choose the Venture seats, following KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, which announced it had selected the seat for its aircraft in April 2018.
“I am very pleased that Air Europa S.A.U appreciates the high quality and design of our Venture seat and has selected the product. Taking this opportunity as a starting point, we are striving to establish a reliable relationship with the company,” said Masamichi Kato, JAMCO Group Chief Operating Officer of Aircraft Interiors Components Group.
In similar terms, Sandra Lenis, Air Europa's Product and Customer Director, said, "Our airline places emphasis on passenger comfort and Venture seats meet our expectations for maximum comfort and quality. Air Europa is constantly striving for excellence on board and we are convinced that our new business class seats will contribute to the wellbeing of our customers".
The Venture seat uses a modular design that can be tailored to customers’ requirements and is based on the JAMCO Group’s standardized platform. The seat was planned and developed entirely by JAMCO, harmonizes with the Boeing Sky Interior, and offers the following features:
・Ensure more personal space and comfort for passengers with a full-flat bed feature, 18.5 inch personal monitor and other equipment.
・All-aisle seat layout allows direct access to the aisle from every seat.
・An advanced design and angled “herringbone” arrangement that enables efficient and attractive placement of seats inside the limited space of the passenger cabin.
・Integrally molded parts using composite materials significantly reduces the number of required components (45%*), making the seats lighter, easier to maintain and environmentally sustainable
