France's Safran secured a series of contracts worth more than $1.2 billion from Emirates Airline to equip its new fleet of Airbus A350, Boeing 777X-9 and existing Boeing 777-300 aircraft with new seats.

The French aerospace-industry supplier said the contracts include business, premium economy and economy class seats for Emirates' Airbus A350, and the Boeing 777X-9.

Safran will also provide cabin equipment, wheels and carbon brakes, as well as retrofit and maintenance, repair and overhaul support services.

The announcement comes a day after Emirates said it would buy 95 wide-body jets from Boeing, moving to expand its fleet of long-haul jets in the coming years to meet rising demand for global travel.
