Founded in Singapore in 2013, AirGo is an award-winning and patent-pending design concept that will bring both airline profits and passenger experience to a whole new level. AirGo Design offers an ultra-light and thin seat frame that brings human ergonomics to design and it converts to brand engagement and travellers’ preference. Novel, lightweight materials and innovative cushion technology, make direct cost savings to airline partners by reducing jet fuel consumption and carbon footprint due to lightweight seat design; lowering maintenance cost of aircraft interiors; enhancing floor space management; and high recyclability. AirGo seats are 50% lighter and 12% wider than existing long-haul economy seats and offer 4 inch more legroom for the same floor space to the pitch. New technologies include: Self-cleaning surfaces (no maintenance), AirCushion technology with Osteomorphic padding (superior comfort), braided composites (ultra-light), 3D scanning (optimised geometry, ergonomic design), fabric with micro-armour (increased durability).
