CTT Systems announces first airline award for Airbus A350 Business Class humidification system

CTT SYSTEMS AB (“CTT”), the market leader of aircraft humidity control systems, today announces first Business Class cabin humidification award for the Airbus A350-900 aircraft. An anonymous airline has selected humidifiers for flight deck, crew rests and Business Class to be line-fitted by Airbus in its entire A350-900 fleet. The shipset amounts to six humidifiers and totals 20 A350-900s with first delivery scheduled to mid-2019.


“It is a breakthrough and major win," commented Peter Landquist, Vice President Sales & Marketing of CTT Systems.  "We are pleased that our proven and highly appreciated humidification technology now migrates to the Business Class cabin.”


“Business Class passengers will thanks to human humidity suffer less from jetlag and feel more at ease on arrival.", said Peter Landquist, Vice President Sales & Marketing of CTT Systems.


In addition, this airline customer has opted to provide pilots and crew with our humidifiers to improve work and rest conditions when flying their new Airbus A350 aircraft. The humidifier in flight deck provides dedicated air streams with human humidity for the pilot and co-pilot. And the crew rest humidifier enables pilots and crew to enjoy better rest and sleep with less risk for dehydration.


“Our flight deck humidifier is highly appreciated by pilots and the crew rest humidifier takes quality of sleep and relaxation to new heights,” comments Peter Landquist.


CTT’s humidifier maintains air humidity in the human comfort zone of approx. 20 percent Relative Humidity. A higher humidity on long-haul flights reduces dry air related problems (e.g. fatigue, jet-lag, red eyes, dry skin, spread of virus diseases) and improves wellbeing and sleep. The humidifier is based on evaporative cooling technology and uses a method that effectively precludes the transfer of bacteria.
