Special INSIGHT Report: When airline cabins are drier than Death Valley

This week's special in-depth focus looks at aircraft cabin comfort and the air we breathe. We talk to Torbjorn Johansson and Peter Landquist, CEO and VP-Marketing for Sweden's CTT.

The company developed systems to rehydrate cabins to improve cabin comfort while at the same time, remove moisture from the aircraft fuselage that could turn to ice or add unnecessary weight to the aircraft.
 
Premium classes suffer the most, with less dense seating there is less humidity – these cabins often have humidity of less than 10% - and that is lower than Death Valley or the Sahara Desert.
 
This causes discomfort, problems for the body’s defence system and the potential for infection.
 
Johansson and Landquist explains how this works and why it is essential that airlines make use of the technology to make it healthier and more comfortable to fly.
 
VVIP aircraft are using the system and now CTT is downsizing with plans for the large cabin purpose-built business aircraft.
