CTT Systems’ Zonal Drying™ Systems Ordered by MYTRAVEL AIRWAYS (UK).
Nyköping, Sweden, January 26, 2007, – CTT Systems today announced that MyTravel Airways (UK) has placed an order for 3 Zonal Drying™ Systems to be installed in one A320, one A321 and one A330-200 aircraft. The systems, which eliminate condensation in the aircraft, are scheduled for installation during 2007.
“We focus heavily on fuel saving actions during our operation and thereby reducing both costs and environmental impact. One of the major reasons why we selected the Zonal Drying™ System is that by eliminating retained condensation in our aircraft, they will be lighter and thus burn less fuel” says Lucas Mollan, Managing Director - MyTravel Aircraft Engineering.
“This is a very important order for us; a prestigious new customer in MyTravel Airways and the possibility to sell more systems if MyTravel after the evaluation period finds the benefits substantial” comments CTT’s President Torbjörn Johansson today’s order. “The various benefits with our system such as reduced fuel burn with the subsequent positive environmental impact, less corrosion, lowered change rate of insulation blankets etc. are important factors for airlines to stay competitive and we are very proud that MyTravel Airways, based on this, decided to select our system” continues Torbjörn Johansson.
By eliminating condensation in the aircraft both operational and maintenance costs will be lowered through:
• lowered fuel consumption (i.e. lower aircraft weight due to elimination of accumulated water),
• improved operational reliability (i.e. less corrective maintenance)
• consistent insulation performance (i.e. water reduces insulation performance),
Further, the aircraft residual value will be protected or even improved due to reduced corrosive impact over the years. Reduced fuel burn (due to lowered aircraft weight) also has a positive impact on the environment.
CTT’s Zonal Drying™ System has been selected for the new B787 “Dreamliner” and CTT’s humidifiers are options in crew rest compartments and on flight deck. The A380 offers CTT’s humidifiers as option in crew rest compartments.
