Aircraft cabin lighting specialist, STG Aerospace is delighted to announce that Romania’s largest airline Blue Air and leading charter carrier Titan Airways are the first airlines to install their revolutionary square-beam liTeMood® LED Reading Lights on their B737NG and B757 aircraft respectively. STG Aerospace has also secured EASA certification for both aircraft types.

The liTeMood® LED Reading Light, an APEX 2016 awards finalist in the ‘Best Passenger Comfort’ category, is a quick-to-install drop-in replacement for the standard incandescent reading lights installed on B737NG and many B757 aircraft. 

Featuring patented photometric technology, liTeMood® LED Reading Lights create a more restful, private space with a greater sense of personal control by introducing a unique square-light beam in place of the traditional circular beam.  This square-beam distributes light precisely and evenly across the seat and tray table, improving visibility and eliminating hot spots and light spill to neighbouring passengers.  Meanwhile the high CRI (Colour Rendering Index) and high R9 (High Quality Red pigment) means not only is magazine text more readable but that inflight meals appear more enticing and on-board merchandise more attractive for purchase.  It also dramatically reduces the glare on tray tables, eBooks and tablets, working for all passenger types.  Operational benefits include a dramatic improvement in reliability, by over 10 times, and simple installation meaning a complete aircraft can be fitted out in just a few hours.

With thousands of passengers on-board Titan Airways and Blue Air aircraft benefiting from their new reading experience from liTeMood®, and further airline installations scheduled for this year, the enhancements in passenger comfort of this simple upgrade are obvious.

Alastair Wilson, Director, Titan Airways, commented: “At Titan Airways we strive to give all of our passengers a premium experience.  Lighting is an important way we do this.  After retrofitting 757’s with liTeMood® mood lighting last year, the decision to upgrade our reading lighting was an obvious one. This simple, same-day installation will provide years of benefits to our VIP passengers all across the globe.”

Aurelian Bobei, CAMO Director, Blue Air, commented: “We’re excited to offer our B737NG passengers the very latest reading light technology from STG Aerospace, the operational benefits of this product were immediately visible to each of us, and can now guarantee a fully new, highly reliable reading light to our passengers on-board.”

Marcus Williams, Global Sales and Marketing Director for STG Aerospace added: “We’re delighted that Titan Airways and Blue Air have chosen our new liTeMood® LED Reading Light.  We all want increased privacy and comfort during our flights, and our new reading light will offer passengers with Blue Air and Titan new levels of this, as well as providing an enhanced reading and working environment.”
