TSI Aviation Seats, a joint initiative of Turkish Airlines, Turkish Technic and Assan Hanil, and the first and only aircraft seat manufacturer of Turkey, entered the Buyer Furnished Equipment (BFE) catalogue of Airbus, showing aircraft seat options to airlines that are customers of the aircraft manufacturer. TSI Seats and Airbus has been successfully working together since 2015.
According to the BFE Catalogue Agreement, economy class seat models Skysofa and Epianka of TSI Seats will appear in the catalogue for the A350 XWB, A330 and A320 plane models of Airbus. The Elesa S model will be placed in the future products section of the catalogue. The Royalux, the first Business Class product of TSI Seats, will be in the catalogue after its certification process is complete.
Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee, M İlker Aycı said that in order to provide logistic support for the sector, they adopted a more active role with partner firm Assan Hanil and broke new ground in the history of Turkish Civil Aviation.
We are happy to see the fruits of this beautiful cooperation. As the first and only aircraft seat manufacturer of Turkey, TSI aims to become one of the top five aviation seat brands in the global market by 2023. This success is an important cornerstone on the way to that goal. I also believe that this agreement with Airbus will herald new agreements in the civil aviation sector.’
Manufactured for wide body aircrafts, Skysofa economy class seats were first delivered to Airbus back in September 2015. Last year, Epianka began to fly after gaining certificates for Airbus A321neo and Boeing B737 MAX narrow body aircrafts. They were also used in Boeing B787 Dreamliner aircrafts in July this year. Deliveries for the A350 wide body aircrafts start in the third quarter of 2019.
TSI Aviation Seats manufacture high quality, light, innovative and competitively priced products. The company is aiming to gain a sizeable portion of the civil aviation market and become one of the top five airplane seat manufacturers of the global market by 2023. Entering the BFE Catalogue of Airbus with this vision, the company plans to continue its investments and growth as a brand.
