Saudi Low-Cost Airline Flyadeal Upgrades Seats with Acro


Saudi Arabia’s leading low-cost airline flyadeal has revealed the latest phase of its strong relationship with Acro Aircraft Seating with the announcement of an upgraded seat programme.

Since April 2021, Acro Aircraft Seating has successfully delivered 22 shipsets of its Series 6 seat to flyadeal for its Airbus A320neo aircraft, with a further 2 shipsets on schedule for delivery this month.

Just in time for Aircraft Interiors Expo 2024 (AIX) which took place in Hamburg at the end of May, flyadeal has confirmed an upgrade to Acro’s technologically advanced Series 9, with an immediate order for the upcoming A320neo deliveries in 2024 through to 2026.

The Series 9 for flyadeal delivers substantial weight advantage and sustainability benefits without compromising on comfort or aesthetics. It offers even greater benefits, with svelte lines giving a standout contemporary style and clever design creating a sense of spaciousness around this supremely elegant and lightweight seat.

Announcing the expanding contract and upgrade to Series 9, Acro CEO, Neil Cairns, said:

“It is great that we are announcing this fantastic news with flyadeal at the world’s leading marketplace for airlines and the interiors supply chain, reaffirming our position as a key player and leading innovator in our industry.


Designed to meet the rigorous demands of today’s increasingly value-driven airlines, our Economy Class champion, the Series 9, is acclaimed for its combination of low weight, unparalleled living space, easy maintenance and robust performance – characteristics which made it the perfect go-to product for flyadeal.


In service with the airline, the Series 6 has already delivered on all fronts, inspiring flyadeal to invest still further in Acro products, upgrading to our reimagined Series 9 for the next phase of the airline’s growth. We are thrilled at this vote of confidence and look forward to working closely with flyadeal to create, with them, a bespoke version of this stunning seat which will reflect both the brand and corporate values of the company. In partnership with flyadeal, we want to reach higher and do more.”

Looking forward to the new look, Steve Greenway, flyadeal Chief Executive Officer, said:

“The undoubted success of the Series 6 encouraged us to establish a deeper relationship with Acro Aircraft Seating and we are delighted to confirm this next phase of our ongoing relationship.  For us, it is important that our partners should really understand our brand values and that they grasp, with us, the opportunity to continuously improve our offering to passengers.


The upgrade to Series 9 from Acro is one such move, and we look forward to seeing the new seat design take to the air. Our striking livery will, I know, showcase the Series 9 to an impactful advantage, which goes much further than appearance. The key is a higher specification, lighter, and more robust seating which our customers will find even more comfortable.”
