J&C Aero, an international aviation center for innovation in cabin transformation, is contracted by the flag carrier of Poland – LOT Polish Airlines – to produce more than 3000 highly durable leather seat covers for the carrier’s Embraer 170/175/190/195 fleet.
The contract covers the production of a full seat cover set, covering the headrest, literature pocket, backrest, and the bottom part of a passenger seat. All covers will be produced from fine Scottish leather sourced from Muirhead, a global leader in the responsible manufacturing of high-performance leather.
In addition, J&C Aero will develop a set of modification documents that are required for installing and proper maintenance of the new covers. J&C Aero’s team of engineers and cabin designers will also support the Polish flag carrier during the initial seat cover installation process that is due to be conducted at LOT’s base at Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW).
“This agreement is the successful culmination of a very thorough, complex tender process that lasted for most of the pandemic. The process covered negotiations on every detail of the materials, their performance, hygiene, durability, and other characteristics. And we are extremely proud of our team and very grateful to our long-time Polish partners for the opportunity to contribute to LOT’s Embraer cabin renewal,” shared Vitalijus Malyška, COO at J&C Aero.
“The comfort and aesthetics of the cabin play a pivotal role in the overall flight experience of our passengers. Under this project, we will have refurbished several thousand seats in 25 of our Embraer 170/175/190/195 aircraft. And since this is not our first cooperation with J&C Aero, we are certain that after the renewal our cabins will look perfectly, just as new,” shared Maciej Wilk, COO of LOT Polish Airlines. J&C Aero and LOT have a long-standing cooperation history that, among other, includes a recently completed project to provide almost six thousand seat covers for the carrier’s widebody Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet.
