Caynova has introduced what it claims is the world's first seat heating and cooling system (HCS) for aircraft seats.
Thermal comfort is individual and greatly influences the well-being of a passenger. Caynova's HCS offers individually adjustable microclimates to aircraft passengers. Understanding the human body and developing comfort features that meet airworthiness requirements is our focus. The new system provides a unique comfort for the passenger by giving them individual temperature control over their own seat.
Caynova says it is the first in the industry offering aviation grade HCS for aircraft seats. Caynova's HCS has been qualified and certified in accordance with the EASA/FAA airworthiness regulations and Caynova's HCS fills a comfort gap for the commercial aviation sector, introducing what has been standard in the automotive industry for years. The system is based on Gentherm technology and is modular, so its components can be easily combined and integrated in any seat concept.
More than 100 new Lufthansa Group aircraft, such as Boeing 787-9s, Airbus A350s and Boeing 777-9s, will offer the innovative feature. The introduction starts in 2023 on 787-900 on Lufthansa flights and Swiss will offer the well-being experience starting in 2024.
Caynova worked closely with LHG and various seat manufacturers to ensure the thermal features met the distinctive vision of the airline. The comfort and functionality have been designed to achieve the highest well-being and to differentiate LHG's premium product. It is this approach that leads to long-lasting relationships with customers such as LHG and it's why Caynova is focused on anticipating the rapidly changing needs of the aircraft seating market.
