STG Aerospace has completed the first five aircraft installations of its WhiteHawk replacement LED lighting system for Swiss International Air Lines.
The deal, signed earlier this year, means the industry’s first ever "swap-out/swap-in" LED lighting system will be retrofitted across the airline’s 20-strong Avro RJ100 fleet.
“The first Avro RJ 100 aircraft kit installation was completed by two engineers in just two hours with no problems and with complete client satisfaction. It was all so straightforward and the benefits so immediately obvious to Swiss that they have asked to accelerate the remaining installations," said Richard Moore, chief executive, STG Aerospace, said.
György Filep, Aircraft Systems Engineer at Swiss International Air Lines, said: “WhiteHawk is a real breakthrough in cabin lighting for us. We carried out a thorough evaluation of all available systems and were impressed by the reduction in maintenance burden and improved cabin appearance delivered by STG’s new product. WhiteHawk has already demonstrated its benefits, so we look forward to completing the changeover in our RJ100 fleet."
