airberlin introduces its new "Recaro BL3520" at the International Travel Trade Show (ITB) in Berlin. Now airberlin passengers will not only enjoy more comfortable seating with more legroom but also they will be able to charge their mobile phones and tablets while flying on short and medium-haul airberlin flights. Dr. Mark Hiller, Chief Executive Officer of Recaro Aircraft Seating, and Stefan Pichler, CEO airberlin, presented the new seat to interested trade professionals at the airberlin exhibition booth.
"Our passengers will now be able to enjoy considerably greater comfort, with three additional centimetres of legroom. The seat is ergonomically designed and the perforated leather ensures optimum air circulation," said Stefan Pichler, describing some of the advantages of the Recaro BL3520.
In addition, the new Recaro seats are equipped with USB ports, where mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets can be plugged in and charged. "The new USB-equipped seats are an important element in expanding our Internet-capable fleet. Within three years, we want all airberlin aircraft to be outfitted with Wi-Fi- making us the first German airline to offer the Internet on German and European routes," said Pichler.
