Immenstaad, May 5th, 2022

ZIM Aircraft Seating GmbH are proud to announce that the ZIMprivacy has been selected by a jury of 27 aviation experts as a finalist for innovation in passenger comfort for the 2022 Crystal Cabin Awards, the world’s premier event honouring excellence in aircraft cabin design.

The ZIMprivacy seat increases passenger comfort while also prioritising privacy, giving more living space and a heightened sense of personal enclosure. The fixed seat back houses a special recline system offering the passenger several different body positions. Its fully mechanical assembly is easier to maintain than comparable electrically powered systems.

ZIM is no stranger to the Crystal Cabin Awards, having received the title previously for the economy class seat, ZIMunique for its innovation in passenger living space in the single aisle market.

The winners will be announced at a special gala dinner on 14 June 2022 at the leading global aviation trade fair, Aircraft Interiors Expo.
