LEDs bring on the Dreamliner

The revolutionary 21st century Boeing 787 Dreamliner landed in Dublin Airport this week as part of its world tour to promote and publicise the technological advances leading to unprecedented luxury and comfort levels for air passengers aswell as substantial improvements in low running costs and carbon emissions.

Among the main attributes of the new jet aircraft is the deployment of several state-of-the-art LED lighting systems including white LEDs and colour-changing LEDs as Boeing bids farewell to fluorescent and other traditional lighting sources to make the plane “bulbless”. Boeing is in no doubt that the LEDs lighting systems have contributed considerably to the value of the aircraft and claim that the look and feel of sky and clouds can be replicated and also the day from dawn to dusk can be simulated aswell through gradual changing of the light spectrum.

The colour-changing LED lighting systems on board have 128 colour combinations and can be programmed to enhance mood & ambiance, and to act against flight fatigue to assist long-haul passengers towards arriving fresher and more energised at the destination. Among other possibilities, the flight attendant may choose to put on an impromptu rainbow light show!

The intelligent dimmability and the tunability of the colour temperature of the lighting offer much potential.  Some of the LED lighting schemes include lavender light when passengers need to relax, and warm, orange-tinted light during meal service.

Among the other benefits brought by the LED lighting systems are reduced glare, better colour rendering, more comfortable light with no high frequency flicker, no hazardous substances such as mercury, and no IR or UV radiation. The extremely low power consumption and long-life span of LEDs are also substantial advantages to the safety,  environmental performance and economic viabilility of the aircraft.

    Awesome, by LED lighting system the environment of the passenger will eventually be a great time to travel and more comfortable because of the lighting effects that gives more cool and good ambiance. Loved it.
