STG Aerospace, a maker of aircraft cabin lighting, announced that British charter carrier Titan Airways is has installed STG’s liTeMood® retrofit LED mood lighting system on its Boeing 757 aircraft. During a cabin re-configuration earlier this week, Titan Airways retrofitted the aircraft lighting for of one of its aircraft for commercial service. The airline will modify its sister aircraft later this summer. Titan Airways adds to the increasing number of airlines across Europe, North and South America that have selected liTeMood®, making it the system of choice for updating cabin lighting for narrow-body Boeing fleets.
According to STG Aerospace, liTeMood® is an easy-to-install retrofit LED mood-lighting system designed to improve passenger comfort and reduce maintenance costs. The blue/white bi-colour system creates a calming and fresh cabin ambiance. The company contends that liTeMood® is a simple upgrade requiring no aircraft modifications. The system uses all the existing wiring, mounting points, connectors, and control panel. STG says that system installation typically takes under five hours and has minimal impact to any other cabin work. The FAA and EASA approved, liTeMood® system boasts improved reliability compared to traditional fluorescent lighting systems, reducing ongoing maintenance and operational costs. The system also offers both a 36kg weight reduction and at least a 50% reduction in power consumption, for improved fuel and electrical efficiency.
Alastair Willson, Director of Titan Airways said, “At Titan Airways we are always striving to improve the in-flight experience and the investment in mood lighting is one more enhancement of the Titan Airways product. We selected STG Aerospace’s liTeMood® system due to their huge experience and expertise in upgrading Boeing 737 and 757 aircraft with LED cabin lighting. The simplicity and speed of installation was exactly as described and the transformation of the cabin was breath-taking. The latest investment follows installation of a state-of-the-art wireless in-flight entertainment system across Titan’s Boeing 757 and Airbus A320 fleets last year.”
Nigel Duncan, CEO of STG Aerospace, commented, “We are delighted that Titan Airways, one of the most prestigious charter airlines in the world, has selected liTeMood® for its Boeing 757 fleet. The installation, carried out at short notice the weekend ahead of a VIP charter operation, was an excellent partnership between STG and Titan engineering teams and is further evidence that liTeMood® has become the clear choice for operators of Boeing narrow-body aircraft.”
