Sabrina Pirillo for PAX International / PAX Tech
Acro’s Jenny Carlino, GM Sales and Marc Westcott, Key Account Manager, talk to PAX International / PAX Tech about Acro’s business achievements in 2019 and provide a preview to new products in the pipeline.
Outside forces and industry trends were driving the direction and the attention of the aircraft seating market at the start of the year.
Seating companies contacted by PAX Tech were watching developments in the long-range narrow body market, while developing products that will stand up to ever-present environmental scrutiny that has become commonplace. At the same time, the ramifications of the coronavirus outbreak were still being considered along with the future of the 737 MAX.
Nonetheless, development is moving ahead, and this year’s Passenger Experience Week promises some new seating products and improvements to existing lines.
Acro Aircraft Seating has seen considerable global business growth in the past year. The low-cost market has always been important for Acro, from its first customer, Jet2, to Mango Airlines, Spirit Airlines, Allegiant Air, Frontier Airlines and more recently Spring Airlines in China. Acro has continued to expand its business with low-cost carriers with the Series 3 family of seats and the launch of the Series 6LC at AIX Hamburg last year, which is the next-generation product aimed at low-cost carriers.
