Aircraft humidity control systems company, CTT Systems AB (CTT), has secured the first business class cabin humidification award for the Airbus A350-900. The airline client, the identity of which remains confidential, has selected humidifiers to be line-fitted by Airbus in the flight decks, crew rests and business class cabins aross its entire A350-900 fleet. The shipset amounts to six humidifiers and totals 20 A350-900s, with first delivery scheduled to mid-2019.
The humidification systems are claimed to maintain air humidity in the human comfort zone of approximately 20% relative humidity. Higher humidity on long-haul flights reduces dry air-related problems (such as fatigue, jet-lag, red eyes, dry skin, spread of virus diseases) and improves wellbeing and sleep, says CTT. The humidifier is based on evaporative cooling technology and uses a method that effectively precludes the transfer of bacteria.
“Business class passengers will, thanks to human humidity, suffer less from jetlag and feel more at ease on arrival,” said Peter Landquist, VP of sales & marketing at CTT Systems.
He added that, “Our flight deck humidifier is highly appreciated by pilots, and the crew rest humidifier takes quality of sleep and relaxation to new heights.”
