AJW Group Introduces SkyLeather® Seats to Azerbaijan Airlines' A320 Fleet

7 Jun 2023

AJW Technique Interiors, a division of AJW Group, is delighted to announce a significant milestone in its long-standing relationship with Azerbaijan Airlines.

The airline has made the decision to install SkyLeather®, a revolutionary, eco-friendly, durable, and lightweight 100% water-based material, on three of its A319 and six of its A320 aircraft. This installation marks a leap forward in passenger comfort and sustainability within the aviation industry.


Developed in collaboration with manufacturing partner Autostop Aviation, SkyLeather® offers significant advantages over natural leather. This innovative man-made material not only delivers enhanced durability and easy cleanability but also offers substantial weight savings, reducing the aircraft's overall weight. By adopting SkyLeather®, Azerbaijan Airlines will achieve a notable reduction in fuel consumption, contributing to a more sustainable and eco-friendly operation.


The implementation of SkyLeather® also translates into significant cost savings for the airline. Its exceptional durability and easy-to-clean surface contribute to a reduction in Direct Maintenance Costs (DMC), allowing for efficient seat maintenance and a superior cabin appearance. These benefits extend to passengers, who will enjoy an enhanced flying experience with comfortable and visually appealing seating.

"We are thrilled to collaborate with Azerbaijan Airlines on this exciting endeavour," said Christopher Whiteside, Chairman at AJW Group. "The installation of SkyLeather® not only elevates the airline's commitment to sustainability but also provides passengers with an exceptional level of comfort and aesthetics. This partnership represents a significant step forward in revolutionising the passenger experience while reducing the environmental impact of aviation."


Samir Rzayev, First Vice President of Azerbaijan Airlines CJSC commented, “AZAL is actively working to improve the quality of its services, always committed to meet the needs of its passengers and at the same time minimize the negative impact on the environment. Our airline is focused on the use of environmentally friendly solutions, and this cooperation has become another important stage of work in this path.”


In addition to the introduction of SkyLeather® and as part of Azerbaijan Airlines' strategic development plan, AJW Technique Interiors is also refurbishing the interiors of one B757 and two B767 aircraft using their own in-house cut, sew and engineering capability.


Travellers on Azerbaijan Airlines can now look forward to an elevated level of comfort, durability, and lightweight design with SkyLeather®. This innovative seating solution represents AJW Technique Interiors' dedication to providing airlines with environmentally friendly and advanced interior solutions.
