'All new standard of economy'

'All new standard of economy'

The new seat has a 30-inch pitch and is 17.2 inches wide, creating extra space, Norwegian says, at knee-level.


The seats also weigh just 10kg each, one kilo less than the pervious model, significantly reducing weight and fuel burn, and allowing Norwegian to continue offering low fares.


Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s chief commercial officer, said: “More than 370,000 customers have flown Norwegian between the UK and Ireland and the US East Coast and now thousands more passengers can fly in slimmer seats that provide more space for the longer flights.


“The Boeing 737 MAX’s versatility can provide passengers with lower fares on direct transatlantic routes and shorter flights as we plan to replace older aircraft as we maintain a young, modern and fuel-efficient fleet.”


Dr Mark Hiller, RECARO Aircraft Seating chief executive, added the seat set “all new standards in economy class”, balancing lightweight design against comfort.
