HAECO Cabin Solutions Presents the Vector Premium™

HAECO Cabin Solutions, a division of HAECO Americas and a business unit within the HAECO Group, today announced the introduction of its Vector Premium product, the newest member of the Vector seating platform. The single-aisle business class seat is designed to prioritise passenger comfort and provide versatility.

The Vector Premium possesses a carbon fibre back and seat pan, along with part-count minimisation ensuring it is one of the lightest, most comfortable seats in its class. Other ergonomic features include a seat back, which reclines eight inches when fully deployed, and a leg rest that achieves a comfortable 60-degree resting angle which can accommodate up to the 95 per cent of the adult population. The Vector Premium seat also has three customisable zones of flexibility, offering passengers a range of purpose-driven stowage options.

In addition to comfort and versatility, which are key to driving passenger loyalty, HAECO emphasized aesthetics. Mark Peterman, President of HAECO Cabin Solutions, said: “An entirely new styling ethic will be used within Vector narrowbody Business Class, which takes its inspirations from the Cubism art movement. The Vector design will create a substantial presence and sense of opulence inside the aircraft cabin.”

The first delivery of Vector Premium is expected during the second quarter of 2018.
