Leading aircraft cabin lighting company STG Aerospace is delighted to announce that Copa Airlines has become the latest airline to install its liTeMood® retrofit LED lighting system representing the first airline in Latin America to complete a 737-800 liTeMood® installation.
With many of their 737NG fleet installed with Boeing Sky Interior, Copa Airlines looked for a cost effective solution to upgrade and harmonise the look and feel of cabin interiors of the older aircraft installed with fluorescent lighting. The liTeMood® installation followed an on-wing demonstration in Panama during 2014. Founded in 1947, Copa Airlines serves as Panama's flag carrier flying more than 11 million passengers a year to destinations in 30 countries in North, Central and South America and the Caribbean.
liTeMood® is a versatile, programmable, fully plug-and-play system which can be installed quickly and easily and offers a highly cost-effective upgrade for airlines seeking to improve passenger experience and increase yields. It features significantly increased reliability over traditional lighting systems, thereby reducing ongoing maintenance and operational costs, and also delivers important environmental benefits. Not only is liTeMood® up to 40kg lighter than original-fit fluorescent lighting, it also consumes 70% less power, increasing both the aircraft’s fuel and electrical efficiency.
Despite the simplicity of its design, liTeMood® incorporates the latest research into the effects of ambient lighting on individual passenger comfort and wellbeing and, as a result of its versatility, can also be applied to achieve impactful brand differentiation.
Marcus Williams, Director of Sales & Marketing added: “As the first ever liTeMood® installation in Latin America, this is an important win for STG Aerospace and we’re looking forward to the opportunity to work closely with Copa Airlines going forward. With the Latin American aviation industry continuing to exhibit strong growth and representing a strategically important market for us, we’re keen to promote liTeMood®’s many benefits across the region”.
