New main cabin seat from Collins Aerospace 

Collins Aerospace introduced its Helix main cabin seat for narrow-body aircraft at the 2024 Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) in Hamburg, Germany.

Helix is intelligently engineered to reduce weight when compared with previous generations of Economy class seats, maintaining ergonomic comfort and improving living space without impacting cabin density.

High strength-to-weight composite materials and advanced design enable weight savings over similar Economy class seats, reducing the overall carry weight of aircraft, associated fuel burn and carbon emissions.

A reimagined frame design optimises passenger seat back angles for longer-lasting comfort and improved cushion integration enhances ergonomics, product longevity and consistency across cabins and fleets.

Collins is currently engaged with a number of airline customers to introduce the Helix main cabin seat into their narrowbody fleets.

“Helix seating was developed with three key pillars in mind – comfort, reliability and sustainability,” said Christophe Blanc, Vice President and General Manager of Aircraft Seating at Collins Aerospace.

“The contemporary design increases passenger living space and under seat stowage, while the seat back is optimized to accommodate a greater number of integrated inflight entertainment (IFE) solutions, literature pockets and full-sized meal trays.
