UK-based leisure airline, Thomson Airways, has awarded STG Aerospace a retrofit cabin lighting program. The contract will see STG Aerospace retrofit nine of Thomson’s Boeing 737NG fleet and 14 of its 757 fleet with liTeMood, a ‘plug-and-play’ programmable blue/white LED mood lighting system designed specifically for the retrofit market.
According to STG, the liTeMood system offers increased reliability over traditional lighting systems, thereby reducing ongoing maintenance costs. The system is also claimed to be up to 40kg lighter than original-fit fluorescent lighting, with 70% less power consumption.
liTeMood is currently available for retrofit on 737NG and 757 aircraft, with further developments in progress including 767 and A320.
