STG Aerospace wins major LED lighting deal with TAP Air Portugal

Leading aircraft cabin lighting company STG Aerospace is celebrating a major new deal supplying the company’s LED lighting system, liTeMood®, to national flag carrier TAP Air Portugal.

TAP has chosen to retrofit liTeMood® across the carrier’s fleet of Airbus A330 aircraft.

Marcus Williams, Global Sales Director, STG Aerospace said: “We’re thrilled TAP has chosen STG Aerospace as a trusted partner, impressed by our customer service, first-class products and competitive pricing. This contract highlights the growing demand for our cabin lighting products. Undoubtedly, TAP’s decision to install our liTeMood® LED lighting system will help the company’s ongoing modernisation strategy. liTeMood® is already delivering significant cabin transformations for many airlines in Europe, the US, Latin America and Asia.

Joel Fragata, Head of In-Flight & On-Ground Product at TAP Portugal adds: “Not only does the STG Aerospace liTeMood® system enhance and brighten the interior of our Airbus A330 fleet, it has been the perfect lighting product to harmonise our existing cabins with our new A330neo aircraft. We’ve been delighted with the way liTeMood® easily and efficiently replaces our conventional cabin lighting. We love the high colour rendering and the superior colour accuracy which helps us emphasise our brand identity across our fleet – it showcases our signature colour palette better than some other systems we’ve explored, giving us beautifully balanced, precise lighting for increased passenger comfort.”

Marcus Williams added: “As we celebrate 30 years shaping illumination, making flying safer and more cost-effective than ever before, it’s great to also be celebrating this new contract win with TAP.”

Growing rapidly, and continuing to invest in the modernisation and expansion of the airline’s fleet, TAP carried 15.8m passengers in 2018.
