The first A330-800neo of Uganda Airlines has taken off with Geven’s Piuma Alta Quota (AQ) Economy and Comoda AQ Premium Economy sustainable seats.
Uganda Airlines claims it chose the seats for their renowned comfort, functionality and aesthetic features which enhance passenger experience, while their efficient design focused on durable and reliable parts minimise fuel consumption and maintenance costs.
“We are excited about the delivery of the A330-800neo which strengthens our fleet capabilities and introduces the desired comfort standards for our long-haul operations,” says Cornwell Muleya, CEO of Uganda Airlines. “We are proud of our beautifully equipped plane which features a three class layout, including a fully lie-flat business class.”
With a full integrated IFE by SPI with 10.1” screen, Piuma AQ also features a headrest, in-arm table, power supply for electronic charge and light weight design features which give the name Piuma AQ (the Italian for feather) to this model. An orange and bronze leather for the seat cover and headrest personalises the Piuma AQ onboard Uganda Airlines.
“We are delighted to be Uganda Airlines’ choice for the outfitting of the long haul Economy and Premium Economy on such a rare aircraft,” says Alberto Veneruso, managing director of Geven.
“Working together with Uganda’s team for the first time was a huge inspiration for Geven. The enthusiasm and outstanding integration of Uganda, Airbus and Geven teams have played a significant role in this successful delivery. We have worked closely with a cooperative approach from the early stages of this 9 months process. Grateful for Uganda Airlines’ trust, we look forward to continue and strengthen our collaboration in the future.”
