JAMCO Group announced today that KLM Royal Dutch Airlines selected Venture, the Group’s new standard seat model, for its aircraft. The seats will be installed on KLM’s eight Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner aircraft (38 seats per aircraft), the first of which is scheduled for delivery by mid-2019.
“As KLM we are excited to collaborate with Jamco on our brand new 787-10 Dreamliner World Business Class seat program. We aim to jointly create the best possible seat and environment for our experienced business class customers,” according to Mr. Boet Kreiken, EVP Customer Experience KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
Unveiled at Aircraft Interiors Expo 2017, the Venture seats are the result of close collaboration between JAMCO and Boeing, and are attractively harmonized with the space and construction of the Boeing Sky Interior.
The Venture seats were planned and developed entirely by JAMCO as the next-generation business class seat and have 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.
・One-piece casting using composite materials significantly reduces the number of required components.
(45%*), making the seats lighter, easier to maintain and environmentally sustainable.

JAMCO’s excellent relationship with KLM has been 30 years in the making, starting with the airline’s selection of JAMCO galleys for its Boeing 747-400 aircraft in 1988. This relationship continues to the present, with every galley installed in KLM’s fleet of wide-body aircraft manufactured by JAMCO.
The JAMCO Group is dedicated to making air travel even more comfortable by manufacturing high quality aircraft interior products that put passenger safety first while combining attractiveness and ease of use with ergonomic design that incorporates features requested by the airlines.
