CTT launches inflight humidification system for ACJ220
Having been selected by Airbus Corporate Jets to develop ACJ TwoTwenty inflight humidification, CTT's system is now available for new-built ACJ220s and as an upgrade to those already in operation.

Aircraft humidity control system supplier CTT Systems is launching humidification as part of its cabin catalogue for the TwoTwenty, to be delivered as bolt-on-kit system with an STC together with new-built TwoTwenty (green) aircraft.

“We are delighted that Airbus Corporate Jets includes humidification as part of the comfort climate in ACJ TwoTwenty aircraft,” says vice president and senior advisor sales Peter Landquist. “ACJ is first in the large cabin business jet segment to offer significantly elevated cabin air humidity with total moisture protection that eliminates all fuselage condensation issues.”

The TwoTwenty humidification system has been developed by CTT in partnership with ACJ. The joint ambition is to achieve a minimum weight solution while ensuring the highest levels of performance, including optimised humidity in the entire cabin with efficient anti-condensation protection. The humidification system is designed to equally distribute humidified air in the extra-large business jet cabin.

“The ACJ TwoTwenty includes a flexible cabin catalogue, opening the extra large business jet categories. Airbus is committed to offering market leading comfort and the best cabin performance in the extra-large TwoTwenty business jet,” says president Benoit Defforge. “As part of this effort, we will promote the humidification system. Because only if humidity is restored to adequate and ground-like levels can passengers fully benefit from long haul travel in the best large-cabin business jet on the market.”

Without an efficient humidification system, the business jet cabin is far more dehydrating than any place on Earth. The ACJ TwoTwenty humidification system will enable a cabin climate restored to comfort and wellbeing level. Passengers on long haul flights will benefit from reduced dry air related problems (e.g. fatigue, jet-lag, red eyes, dry skin and spread of virus diseases) and improved wellbeing and sleep. The CTT humidifier is based on evaporative cooling technology and uses a method that effectively precludes the transfer of bacteria. The ACJ TwoTwenty business jet will be protected by the CTT anti-fuselage condensation system.
