Singapore Airline selects Lufthansa Technik’s GuideU for 787 fleet

Singapore Airlines has chosen Lufthansa Technik’s GuideU 1000-Series emergency floor path marking system to be installed into its new Boeing 787-10 fleet. A total of 49 aircraft of this type are scheduled to be delivered to Singapore’s flag carrier since the first quarter of 2018. Singapore Airlines already relies on GuideU for its Airbus A350 fleet.

“We are delighted that Singapore Airlines has decided to install GuideU in its new Boeing 787 aircraft,” said Torben Biehl, Head of Product Development for GuideU at Lufthansa Technik. “GuideU with its highly individual design options goes beyond the pure functionality of an emergency system. Not only is it the world’s flattest and lightest floor path marking system, it is also totally maintenance-free.”

The GuideU 1000-Series is the next-generation non-electrical floor path marking system, using photoluminescent strips to guide passengers to the exits if cabin lighting fails. GuideU 1000-Series is available in many different colors that can be integrated into any cabin design, making it almost invisible under normal lighting conditions. Fillers in various sizes allow adapting the light strip assembly height to different carpets.

The GuideU 1000-Series will be presented at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg from 10 to 12 April 2018 at the Lufthansa Technik stand in hall 6, booth 80.
