STG Aerospace partners with Azores Airlines on new one-of-a-kind liTeMood cabin lighting

Passengers flying with Azores Airlines can now experience the most advanced cabin mood lighting available on the A320 family, portraying the unique natural beauty of the Azores islands throughout the cabin with an extensive blue and green palette, thanks to a new partnership with STG Aerospace.

liTeMood creates a totally new cabin lighting experience. For Azores Airlines, this means recalling the landscape of their homeland in different hues, and is unique to their airline. The dynamic and full colour plug-and-play configurable lighting solution sets the scene in an instant. The lighting profiles were created specifically to Azores Airlines requirements and are accompanied by the sounds of nature from the Azores, to create a unique and immersive experience of the magical islands within the cabin.

This is critical to making passengers comfortable on long haul flights. Azores Airlines holds the record for the longest commercial flight on A321LR (Lisbon to Bogota in January 2021) and continue to connect Paris to New York, with two weekly rotations, making a brief stop in the Azores, as well as Boston and Toronto to the Azores.

Graça Silva, Head of Brand, Marketing and Communication at Azores Airlines commented, “We wanted to capture the essence of the Azores landscape in our cabin lighting experience – the dramatic landscapes, the surrounding Atlantic Ocean, green forests and hedgerows of blue hydrangeas that encapsulate our region.

“The liTeMood system allows us to do just that, recreating the colours and emotions of the Azores, so our passengers can experience them on board with the accompanying sounds, before their feet have even touched the ground.”

Azores Airlines have selected the liTeMood cabin lighting for five A321 NEO including LRs. The first one has already been fitted and is flying, with the rest of the fleet to follow.

Pierre Michard, Director of Sales & Programmes at STG Aerospace said, “We are delighted to partner with Azores Airlines as they upgrade their aircraft and bring a totally unique onboard experience to their passengers. liTeMood®‘s capabilities allow airlines to create extraordinary lighting scenes, so it’s always exciting to see the challenges our clients pose to us and the results we can produce. The light scenes were jointly created with Azores onboard the first aircraft and the STG customer suite in Wales.

“Azores leveraged the industry downtime to innovate and completely re-invent its whole passenger experience. STG is proud to be part of this innovative process.”

Reflecting on the experience of working with STG Aerospace, Azores Airlines Head of Brand, Graça Silva said, “STG Aerospace are incredibly knowledgeable and professional. They worked with us from the start and beyond installation, dispatching a team to support on-site for our first installation, despite travel restrictions.

“We have enjoyed working with a partner who is so proactive, passionate and quick to respond to our needs and are looking forward to bringing the liTeMood system and all of our latest innovations on the tastes, sounds and colours of the Azores to our passengers. Giving a glimpse of all the experiences they will live on our magical islands.”
