Aer Lingus has announced today that it is introducing a new customised mood lighting system to its fleet of aircraft.
The Irish airline said that the new lighting will "enhance the comfort of its guests" and is the latest in a range of updates introduced by the company in recent times.
In January they launched their branding with an updated logo as well as new aircraft livery.
The lighting system being introduced to the fleet of Airbus planes is part of a partnership with Cobalt Aerospace and they hope that it will minimise the effects of jet-lag.
The new LEDs come in a number of mood settings such as:
Commenting on the new mood lighting system, Mike Rutter, Chief Operating Officer at Aer Lingus, said: “We are delighted to unveil the new LED mood lighting system which will further enhance the Aer Lingus guest in-flight experience. In recent years, we’ve invested significantly in our business, including the launch of a refreshed brand in January of this year to improving our value proposition and overall guest experience and becoming Ireland’s only four-star airline.
"Innovations that we have introduced include the roll-out of WiFi on our A330s, automated check-in and bag drop at Dublin Airport, Business Class improvement with fully lie-flat beds and economy catering upgrades.
"The introduction of this mood lighting system is the latest initiative to improve our guests’ comfort onboard."
At the moment 25 Aer Lingus aircraft have been fitted with the "experience enhancing" lighting with the remained of the fleet to be updated during standard maintenance checks.
Ben Brown, Director at Cobalt Aerospace, added: “Partnering with Aer Lingus to deliver customised mood lighting is a great development for our company.
"Cobalt Aerospace offers highly advanced LED lighting systems for aircraft interiors, an enhancement which will give Aer Lingus guests unrivalled comfort.”
