Porter upgrades seating with Spectrum

4th June 2009 - 20:33 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


To enhance customer experience, Porter Airlines has upgraded its aircraft interiors with new B/E Aerospace Spectrum seats across its entire 12-aircraft Bombardier Q400 fleet.

Spectrum seats offer larger meal trays, built-in head rests, and longer seat cushions. The orthopedically-contoured and ergonomically-designed seats will now be the standard on all new Porter Q400 deliveries.

“As the first Q400 operator to order these seats, Porter is proud to be at the forefront of customer service, providing passengers unrivalled comfort and value,” remarked Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “The new seats represent our ongoing commitment to delivering a service-oriented travel experience.”

The seats also feature Lantal leather and a thin profile for maximum cabin living space including an extra half-inch of leg room. Porter’s 70-seat configuration provides up to 34 inches of seat pitch, two to three inched more than typical economy seating.

“We are pleased to be part of Porter’s ongoing service improvements. Spectrum seats offer travellers even greater relaxation as they enjoy flying,” said Tom Plant, vice-president and general manager of B/E Aerospace’s Seating Products.

Porter’s current Q400 order is for 20 aircraft in total. All aircraft are scheduled for delivery within the next 12 months.
