STG Aerospace will supply its SafTGlo ColorMatch photoluminescent floorpath marking systems for Singapore Airlines' Scoot low-cost carrier. Under terms of the agreement, STG Aerospace will equip four Boeing 777-200s, with options to fit the product on all future aircraft.
SafTGlo stores and simultaneously emits light, giving highly visible emergency exit guidance for up to 16 hours in darkness. SafTGlo needs virtually no maintenance unlike traditional electrical systems, saving airlines valuable time and money while offering a reliable, essential safety system, according to the company.
“We’re delighted to welcome Scoot as a new customer. Through-life cost-savings with fast payback are vital to low-cost airlines; we believe that Scoot has recognised all the benefits that SafTGlo can offer in both the short and long term,” said Richard Moore, chief executive of STG Aerospace.
Launched in November 2011 and commencing operations in June 2012, the no-frills carrier will offer medium and long haul flights from Singapore Changi Airport.
