Lufthasa’s Recaro seats to be rolled out on Croatia Airlines jetsAt a launch party in Zagreb for Lufthansa’s new look economy class cabin for inter-European flights, Croatia Airlines revealed it too will introduce the Lufthansa Recaro designed seats (pictured above) on its Airbus fleet in 2012. Lufthansa began refitting its short and medium haul aircraft in December 2010 with the new slimline seats. Georg Lazzari from the airline said that Croatia Airlines’ technical division has been authorised to fit the Europe cabin on several of Lufthansa’s Airbus A320s, thus making Croatia Airlines the only other airline authorised to do so on Lufthansa jets. The refitting will be done at Croatia Airlines’ relatively new hanger at Zagreb Airport, opened in 2008 in cooperation with the German flag carrier.
The new seats are both more comfortable and economical, according to the two partner airlines. They provide passengers with more legroom but also allow the addition of another 2 rows of seating. Croatia Airlines will roll out the new economy class cabin on selected Airbus A320s in time for the 2012 summer season.
