The new seat is also lighter, and is expected to help AirAsia reduce fuel consumption by more than 70,000 litres and lower CO2 emissions by 200 tonnes per aircraft per year, supporting the airline’s ongoing commitment to low air fares and sustainable business practices.

The Hawk also reinforces AirAsia’s innovation focus on innovation from the airport to the air. All Hawk seats are assembled at the state-of-the-art automotive-style production facility in Norfolk, UK by Mirus Aircraft Seating, which draws on Formula 1 engineering expertise and an automotive production mentality to redefine value in aircraft seating.
