Thompson Aero Seating is renowned for its ingenuity in the design and delivery of premium, business-class airline seating. We were founded by James Thompson twenty years ago when the first Vantage fully flat-bed seat was conceived, to bring greater comfort and space-efficiency to business-class seating solutions.
Today, Thompson Aero Seating offers a wide range of innovative, beautiful, comfortable, highly efficient, and reliable business- and first-class seating products. The constantly expanding and evolving Vantage seating range now includes products for twin- and single-aisle aircraft, which range from turnkey, through customised, to utterly bespoke, using intelligent design to maximise passengers’ comfort and personal space, optimising every inch of the cabin. The company is owned by AVIC.
We are accountable, inclusive and responsible, maintaining the highest ethical standards in all that we do.
We strive to deliver the best, exceeding our customers’ expectations and embracing continuous improvement.
We put our customers at the heart of everything we do, offering the most agile, flexible and innovative solutions, supported by on-time and on-budget delivery with the highest levels of safety, value and quality.
We are optimistic, courageous and bounce back quickly from setbacks. We continuously strive to gain the competitive advantage by evolving and rapidly recovering whilst remaining robust, calm and steadfast.
We work together as one team, leveraging and celebrating our diverse perspectives, talents, individuality and cultures.
Innovation is the foundation of all that we do, creating a platform of sustained growth for the company, customer and the environment.
