At 4,500 seats, the contract can be seen as the first major order for Expliseat.
On the in-service 737 NG narrowbodies, the existing seats will be replaced. The new Q400 turboprops will receive a high-density layout with 90 seats. Deliveries are to start in the third quarter of this year.
SpiceJet has chosen the TiSeat E2, the weight of which can be as low as 5 kg (11 lb.), the exact weight depending on the options. The equipment manufacturer thus estimates 1,300 kg will be saved on each 737. The Q400 seats are calculated to be 400 kg lighter.
