It’s an upgrade on the Zim Magic seat, with which Lufthansa launched its premium economy offering back in 2014

Commenting on the news, Zim Aircraft Seating CEO Sven Achilles said: “The award of this project to Zim Aircraft Seating is a very good sign for the future direction of commercial aviation in the long-lasting Covid-19 crisis and indicates a recovery in flight activities.
