April 4, 2017 – Romania’s largest airline, Blue Air and leading charter carrier, Titan Airways are the first airlines to install the square-beam liTeMood LED reading lights from STG Aerospace on their B737NG and B757 aircraft, respectively. STG Aerospace has also secured EASA certification for both aircraft types.
The reading light, an APEX 2016 awards finalist in the ‘Best Passenger Comfort’ category, is a drop-in replacement for the standard incandescent reading lights installed on B737NG and many B757 aircraft.
Featuring photometric technology,the the square-light beam of the lights is claimed to create a more restful, private space with a greater sense of personal control than traditional circular beams. The square beam – with a high CRI (Colour Rendering Index) and high R9 (High Quality Red pigment) which makes objects in its range more attractive – distributes light precisely and evenly across the seat and tray table, improving visibility and eliminating hot spots and light spill to neighboring passengers.
The square beam is also claimed to “dramatically” reduce glare on tray tables, eBooks and tablets, while operational benefits include a more than ten-fold improvement in reliability, and simple installation meaning a complete aircraft can be fitted out in just a few hours.
Marcus Williams, global sales and marketing director for STG Aerospace commented, “We’re delighted that Titan Airways and Blue Air have chosen our new liTeMood LED Reading Light. We all want increased privacy and comfort during our flights, and our new reading light will offer passengers with Blue Air and Titan new levels of this, as well as providing an enhanced reading and working environment.”
