CTT Systems AB receives an order from Sabena technics, on the Cair™ system for one VIP A318 aircraft
Nyköping, August 24 2012, Sabena technics based in France, has ordered a CTT Cair™ System to be installed, during autumn 2012, in one Airbus VIP A318 aircraft belonging to an important Middle East VIP operator.
Sabena technics, a leading VIP completion and maintenance services provider, will perform the very first installation of the CTT CairTMSystem on an A318 at its Bordeaux site. “Sabena technics is very pleased to be working again with CTT. We had a very strong collaboration on a previous project which was a driving factor for choosing them again. We look forward to working together on this new exciting project”, says Francesco Aucelli, VIP and Cabin Modifications Head of Procurement at Sabena technics.
“It’s a great pleasure for us to announce this order as it’s the second with Sabena technics completion centre. We are especially excited as it is the first order ever for the A318 aircraft type” says Peter Landquist, Vice President Sales & Marketing of CTT Systems.” We very much look forward working with Sabena technics again in this new project.
Cair™ is focused on the passengers’ health and comfort by providing humidification of the extremely dry aircraft cabins without causing condensation. Cair™ gives a pleasant relative humidity of around 20%, compared to 3-5% without, for the passengers, thereby reducing dry air related problems (e.g. fatigue, jet-lag, red eyes, dry skin, spread of virus diseases).
The Cair™ system is based on evaporative cooling technology and uses a method that effectively precludes the transfer of bacteria within the aircraft. The dual-purpose system increases humidity for greater comfort and incorporates the Zonal Drying™ System to counter condensation problems.
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 the Cair™ system for the A350 aircraft, as options.
