EasyJet Trials CTT Zonal Drying Technology

EasyJet has started a 12-month trial of CTT Systems’ Zonal Drying technology. The airline is installing the unit, which weighs less than 30kg, to the crown area of four of its A320 aircraft. The system consists of a fan, heater and moisture-absorbing silica impregnated rotor, all designed to improve air quality onboard and reduce water retention by channelling dry air to the crown area of the aircraft. Chris Foster, flight operations manager at EasyJet, said: “There is the potential to save 4.5 million kilogrammes of fuel per year by using this Zonal Dryer technology.”
