Recaro Aircraft Seating and jetlite launch Human Centric Lighting for business class

Posted 2 April 2019 · Add Comment

Recaro Aircraft Seating and German start-up jetlite have unveiled their innovative concept for individualised Human Centric Lighting for business class seats at Aircraft Interiors Hamburg.

 

jetlite’s Human Centric Lighting can support the inner clock of passengers and thus reduce the effects of jetlag. Up until today it was available only as a cabin lighting solution. Through this exclusive partnership with jetlite, Recaro is the only seat manufacturer worldwide to explore the potential of individualized Human Centric Lighting integrated into business class seats.

In 2017 German start-up jetlite launched its solution to defeat jetlag. It is based on a scientific algorithm focused on optimizing aircraft cabin lighting with respect to flight route, direction, duration and overflown time zones on long-haul flights to suit human biorhythms.

Until today, jetlite’s Human Centric Lighting solution was only available for the cabin lighting. Recaro and jetlite are collaborating to make this concept available as a personally operable feature by integrating it into each business class seat and introducing individualized Human Centric Lighting.

Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO and Shareholder of Recaro Aircraft Seating: “We are working hard to soon make jetlite’s Human Centric Lighting concept available as an individual feature integrable in business class seats. Once launched into the market, it will provide airlines with a point of real differentiation against the competition. At the same time, it will improve passenger comfort and hence contribute to greater customer retention.”

“A couple of years ago we developed our scientifically proven jetlite algorithm to battle jetlag,” said Dr. Achim Leder, CEO of jetlite. “Lufthansa’s implementation of the technology as a cabin lighting solution in its A350-fleet was a big step forward for the company. Our system, however, truly comes into its own when it is integrated into each individual seat. That is exactly what the collaboration with Recaro is about: to develop a truly bespoke lighting experience tailored to each passenger.”
