Pitch Aircraft Seating Systems (Pitch), a manufacturer of economy class seating, has secured a contract with leasing company, SAAL to retrofit the Antonov aircrafts. The contract was signed at the Aircraft Interiors Exhibition in Hamburg.

Ralf-Dieter Montag-Girmes, president of SAAL added, “This partnership allows us to modernize the interior of the Antonov 148/158 cabins for our clients in Latin America. The Pitch brand has a reputation for innovation and design with its highly durable efficient fixed back seat. This retrofit will allow our lessees to operate the aircrafts in a very efficient way given the attractive value for money and excellent five-year warranty on offer. The AN 148/158 family is ideal for the South American market with its unique high altitude capabilities and its ability to land nearly everywhere”.


Pitch will supply the light weight PF3000 seat to Antonov for the line fit on their An-148/158 family of aircrafts. The efficient design of the PF3000 allows Antonov to increase the seating capacity of the AN-158 aircraft to 102 PAX and save weight.

Mr Oleksandr Donets, president of the Antonov company commented, “Today we made a new step towards the modernisation of our passenger jets of AN-1X8 family keeping high comfort for passengers and improving the aircraft characteristics. The Pitch team has proved to be responsive to our requirements while sharing our passion for making great products that will stand the test of time.”
