TUI Airlines line-fit launch customer for UltraLite system

TUI Airlines has become the first customer for Astronics Advanced Electronic Systems’ (AES) UltraLite in-seat power system, following line-fit certification.

The EmPower UltraLite system is a new, lightweight architecture providing high output USB power for passenger use without the need for a power supply unit installed at each seat group.

The UltraLite system is now line-fit offerable on any Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft and will be line-fit delivered on Airbus in the third quarter of 2018.

“We are pleased to announce TUI Airlines as the line-fit launch customer for our revolutionary new UltraLite system, and are confident that our in-seat power solution will deliver an excellent passenger experience. The installation went flawlessly and the system is performing well,” said Dennis Markert, director of business development, Astronics AES.
