Alaska Airlines will install STG Aerospace’s next-generation saf-Tglo SSUL photoluminescent emergency escape path marking system (EEPMS) on 116 aircraft across its retrofitted and new Boeing 737-700, MAX9 and Airbus A320 Family fleets – making it one of the largest multi-platform programmes ever awarded. 

The retrofit programme, which is due to commence in late 2018, will see Alaska Airlines upgrade the photoluminescent EEPMS system in their Boeing and Airbus fleets to the latest saf-Tglo SSUL design, which is the lightest, narrowest and most discrete photoluminescent solution available. Alaska Airlines will also replace the electrical emergency lighting system in the Airbus fleet, a change expected to realise significant operational cost savings due to the high reliability and fail-safe nature of saf-Tglo.

Commenting on the recent contract award, Warren Hamilton, Director of Cabin Products and Interiors at Alaska Airlines, said: “STG Aerospace has been an exceptional supplier over many years, and their saf-Tglo system has a proven track record of both robustness and reliability. This made the decision to integrate the system as part of the retrofit programme a natural one. Aesthetically, the system will assist us in unifying cabin appearance across the new combined Boeing and Airbus fleets, but more importantly it will assist us in keeping our guests and crew safe when they’re in our care.”

Marcus Williams, Director of Global Sales at STG Aerospace added: “We are always delighted when a long term customer chooses us for their latest cabin upgrade programme, as it means we are doing something right.  In this case it is even more special because Alaska Airlines has trusted us to be part of their new brand following the integration of the Virgin America fleet.  We are looking forward to beginning the installations next year and upgrading the entire fleet with our latest next-generation photoluminescent system.”
