Air Baltic Chooses Recaro For It A220-300 Seating

Some interesting news has been coming out of the aircraft interiors expo in Hamburg. Air France just yesterday revealed its new cabin interiors for its Embraer E190s and now we have another announcement. This time its all about a nimble, very interesting carrier from the baltic, Air Baltic, and its Airbus A220-300 interiors.

Air Baltic Opts For Recaro

The center of attention this week is undoubtedly Hamburg with its Aircraft Interiors Expo. Air Baltic doesn’t usually make headlines as its operations are very straight forward and its service is very basic in many ways. However this week there is something to talk about regarding the Latvian airline.

Air Baltic has in fact chosen as its new interiors supplier German firm Recaro. The carrier will be fitting its one aircraft fleet of Airbus A220-300s with seats manufactured by this firm. However we’ll have to wait some time before being able to see these new interiors in person. The first fitted aircraft is scheduled to enter service only in 2026.

What Do The New Recaro Seats Offer?

Well if you are accustomed with AirBaltic you won’t be surprised by me saying not that much. The Latvian carrier is a hybrid airline, half way between an LCC and a full service. Therefore seats reflect this nuance.

The new Recaro seats to be fitted on the airline’s A220 fleet will:

  • Thinner while supposedly maintaining comfort levels
  • Have a USB-C charging port at each seat
  • Offer recline and a 30″ pitch between seats
