CTT keeps crew fresh with A350 and B787 humidifier deals
CTT Systems, the Swedish manufacturer of anti-condensation systems for commercial aircraft and the provider of humidification products for cockpit, crew rest and cabin areas, has been awarded its first Airbus A350-customer order for flight deck and flight crew rest compartment humidifiers.
The unnamed airline – believed to be Qatar Airways - has ordered humidifiers for flight deck and flight crew rest compartment to be installed in its first A350-900 aircraft. The airline has in total 12 A350-900 on order and is operating a fleet of Boeing 787s equipped with CTTs flight deck/crew rest humidifiers.
The flight deck air is normally extremely dry as is the air in the crew rest compartments. By humidifying the air, work and rest conditions improve significantly. Not only will crew benefit from higher humidity levels during flights, but they will also recover faster during layovers and return flights.
“CTT is pleased with this first A350-order and delighted that it is from a Boeing 787-customer meaning our product humidifiers are sought after for the world’s two most advanced commercial aircraft,” said Peter Landquist, CTT’s vice president sales & marketing. “The airline demand for flight deck/crew rest humidification is clearly defined and proven on the Boeing 787 aircraft. With this recent order, we are honoured to be the sole supplier for both the Airbus A380 and A350XWB”.
