Acro Aircraft Seating has been selected by Airbus as Premium Supplier for Economy Class and Premium Economy Class Seats of the BFE catalogue 2023 July release, an influential independent endorsement of Acro’s focus on quality and execution across the design and manufacturing processes.

The supplier support rating for buyer-furnished equipment is published as part of the Airbus Buyer Furnished Equipment (BFE) Product Catalogue to guide customers during their equipment selection process. This rating, which is reviewed every six months, is based on three criteria: Delivery performance, Quality Performance, and Technical Performance.

Neil Cairns, chief executive of Acro said: “This award takes our longstanding partnership with Airbus and our customers to a new level and we look forward to reaping the commercial benefits which this rating will unlock for our business across the world.
