      HAECO Cabin Solutions to Debut Eclipse Cabin and Announces Launch Customer


      HAECO Cabin Solutions, a division of HAECO Americas headquartered in Greensboro, North Carolina, USA, and a business unit within the HAECO Group, unveils its Eclipse Cabin at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany, on 2 April 2019. During the event, HAECO Cabin Solutions also showcases its new Eclipse seat. The launch customer − an as yet unnamed Middle East-based airline − will begin flying with the seats in 2020. 

      The Eclipse Cabin transforms travel in short-haul business class and long-haul premium economy by utilising an innovative layout and design. This elevates the overall passenger experience by increasing privacy and comfort while maximising passenger places (PAX) for airlines. The Eclipse Cabin further enhances flying by providing more stowage space for amenities and crew baggage, freeing overhead bin space.

      Doug Rasmussen, President and Group Director of HAECO Cabin Solutions, said: “We saw an opportunity to develop a premium product for an emerging new class between premium economy and business class seating that would be appreciated both by passengers and airlines. We harnessed our decades of experience in providing premium seating products and services to take a holistic approach to creating a new standard. The unique advantages of the Eclipse seat, together with the integrated cabin, can create up to a 14% increase in PAX within the same cabin space.”

      Customer deliveries will commence in the first quarter of 2020 after the Eclipse Cabin has achieved FAA Technical Standard Order (TSO) certification. Discussions with airframers to make the Eclipse Cabin linefit-offerable are ongoing. The Eclipse Cabin has already achieved technical viability with Boeing and configurations for the Boeing 737 and 787 are now available. 

      The Eclipse Cabin will be on display at the HAECO Americas booth during the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany 2-4 April, 2019.
