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 25%, 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).
“We are very pleased to receive this order from AAC, which now is the third order from AAC within 12 months” says Ulf Liljenberg, Vice President Sales & Marketing of CTT Systems. ”This clearly shows the high level of activity in this market and the interest in our system” continues Ulf Liljenberg.
”In the recent past AAC has successfully worked with CTT in integrating their systems in other VIP aircraft platforms (i.e. B-767, A319 and BBJ) and we look forward to future mutual cooperation in jointly improving cabin environment for our VIP customers” says Patricio Altuna, SVP Sales, Marketing & Product Support Associated Air Center.
The Cair™ system is based on evaporative cooling technology. Besides being extremely energy efficient, Cair™ 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 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.
Nyköping, Sweden, January 13, 2009, – Associated Air Center (AAC) in Dallas, USA has ordered the CTT Cair™ System to be installed in one VIP A319 aircraft. The installation will be performed during spring/summer 2009.
