CTT Systems’ Zonal Drying™ Systems to be installed in JET2.COM Boeing 737QC fleet
Nyköping, Sweden, September 14, 2009, – CTT Systems today announced that Jet2.com (UK) has placed an order for 7 Zonal Drying™ Systems to be installed in Jet2.com’s B737QC aircraft. The systems, which eliminate condensation in the aircraft, are scheduled for installation during 2009-2010.
“We are very pleased that Jet2.com continues to invest in our Zonal Drying™ System based on their experience of the system in their B757s. Jet2.com is a very valuable customer for us and we look forward to be a part of their future business and helping them to keep their costs down,” comments CTT’s VP Sales & Marketing Ulf Liljenberg on today’s order. “With this order for systems to the B737QC we also hope to be able to attract interest from other operators of this specific aircraft type,” continues Ulf Liljenberg 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 as basic equipment 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. CTT will also supply the Zonal Drying™ system and Humidifiers for the A350 aircraft, as options. A350 will have the Cair™ system, humidification for flight deck, cabin crew rest and specific parts of the passenger cabin available as options. This is the first time an aircraft manufacturer offers humidification for the passenger area.
