Sweden-based CTT Systems has received an order from Stockholm-based Novair to equip two Airbus A321neos with Zonal Drying Systems.

The Zonal Drying System removes moisture from the air between the cabin and the aircraft’s outer skin, preventing water build-up on insulation blankets and condensation. 

CTT VP-sales and marketing Peter Landquist noted that it is the first Zonal Drying order for an A320neo aircraft. “Novair has proven the benefits from mastering the root-cause of condensation when operating their previous A321ceo aircraft equipped with the Zonal Drying System,” he said.

“The systems will be retro-fitted in the [newly delivered A320neo aircraft] to prevent weight gain from accumulated water/ice accretion (which increases fuel and CO2 burn) and to reduce other moisture problems, such as electrical failures.”
