DSC_0514WestJet Airlines, which currently operates five Boeing 737 Max 8 jets and has 50 additional orders for 737 Max 7, Max 8, and Max 10 aircraft, said Wednesday it plans to install its first business-class cabins on the aircraft.

The airline currently does not offer a business-class cabin although it offers a premium economy lite section called Plus that offers extra legroom, a blocked middle seat, and complimentary food and beverages.

The Canadian airline announced this along with an order for a total of 4,700 economy and business-class seats from Recaro. Recaro will be supplying coach seats for ten new Boeing 787 Dreamliners as well as coach seats for the 737 Max aircraft.

“We are confident our guests will be impressed with the comfort and uncompromising quality [of the Recaro seats],” said Tim Croyle, the airline’s executive vice president.

Recaro’s business-class seat features multiple storage compartments as well as a leg rest and can be equipped with in-flight entertainment systems.
