CTT Systems’ VIP Inflight Humidification (IFH) system has been ordered by Jet Aviation for a green BBJ787 completion. Four humidifiers will be installed to increase relative humidity (RH) throughout the cabin. The contract represents CTT Systems’ 93rd IFH order for ACJ and BBJ types. The system is scheduled for delivery to Jet Aviation in June 2020. The aircraft will also feature a line-fitted humidifier in the flight deck.
“We are honoured and will work closely with Jet Aviation in this BBJ787 humidification system installation,” said Peter Landquist, vice president of sales and marketing at CTT Systems. “The BBJ787 is perhaps the most advanced system we have developed. Our BBJ787 system – together with standard-fitted climate improvement features on the 787, such as higher cabin pressure – secures the world’s best VIP cabin climate, optimised so travellers can thrive during flight and arrive at their destination relaxed, rested and ready to perform.”
“Exceeding our customers’ expectations is always our top priority and we believe humidification greatly increases the comfort and wellbeing of passengers on board,” said Stephane Richard, completions programme director at Jet Aviation Basel. “We chose CTT’s IFH VIP system because we know it to be a robust and reliable humidification system.”
CTT Systems says that without an efficient humidification system, VIP cabin air has an RH of below 5%. On this BBJ787, the RH should be boosted to approximately 20%. The humidifier is based on evaporative cooling technology and uses a method designed to effectively preclude the transfer of bacteria. The system offers anti-condensation protection.
