STG Aerospace receives extended SWA contract

By Lauren Brunetti

STG Aerospace, makers of the market leading SafTglo Photoluminescent (PL) Floorpath system, has announced that it has continued its relationship with Southwest Airlines. An extension of the original agreement from December 2011, allows for the SafTglo system to be retrofitted on some of the Dallas-based airline’s fleet of Boeing 737-300s.
 
Installation will begin in 2013 as part of the airline’s new Evolve interior. SafTglo first launched a Photoluminescent (PL) Floorpath marking system in 1995 and is the market leader in PL sales and product innovation. SafTglo products are installed by airlines and OEMs worldwide. 

Nigel Duncan, chief executive of STG Aerospace, said: “We’re delighted that Southwest Airlines has chosen SafTglo for some of its Classic 737 fleet. We look forward to continuing to work with Southwest Airlines.”
 
In other news, STG Aerospace has also been chosen by Boeing to be an SFE supplier of photoluminescent floor-path marking systems for the Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX. Boeing extended STG’s current contract for 737 aircraft by a further 10 years, for the line-fit installation of SafTglo photoluminescent (PhotoLum) emergency floor-path marking systems. Since the start of this contract in 2000, Boeing has installed over 2,500 kits as line-fit on Next-Generation 737 series aircraft.

SafTGlo PL floorpath marking systems ‘store’ and simultaneously emit light giving highly visible emergency exit guidance for up to 16 hours in darkness, after only a short period of ‘charging’ with normal cabin lighting. SafTglo needs virtually no maintenance, saving airlines valuable time and money while offering a reliable, essential safety system.
