Starting in March 2020 with the delivery of the first of six new wide-body aircraft, jetlite’s Human Centric Lighting will fly on Vistara’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner fleet in order to enhance passenger well-being and reduce the effects of jet lag.

In order to further enhance passenger well-being on its recently launched international service, Vistara partners with jetlite to integrate Human Centric Lighting into its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner fleet. Vistara is Asia’s first airline with jetlite on board, joining premium airlines such as Lufthansa to place greater focus on the positive effects of lighting on the human body.

Air travel creates considerable stress for passengers. A great part of this stress can be attributed to the disruption of the body’s inner clock, or circadian rhythm, leaving passengers fatigued and less productive or alert. jetlite’s Human Centric Lighting in the aircraft offers a counteraction –it reduces travel-related fatigue and brings the well-being of passengers into focus. By adjusting especially light color and intensity throughout flights, it encourages them to adjust sleep schedules and arrive well-rested and less jet-lagged. 

“Vistara´s lighting scenes by jetlite are based on the findings of Human Centric Lighting and chronobiology, backed by extensive research studies and real test flights. Apart from that, jetlite customizes Human Centric Lighting solutions individually for each airline, taking factors such as corporate design, the effect on CMF (colors, material and finishing) and cultural background into consideration.”, says Dr. Achim Leder, Co-Founder and Managing Director at jetlite. The optimal lighting scenes customized for Vistara have been jointly developed by Vistara and jetlite with the support of Boeing in Everett.

“Since inception, Vistara has focused on delivering an exceptional inflight experience that enhances our customers’ wellness. Cabin lighting is one of the elements that makes this possible and we are delighted to partner with jetlite for their cutting-edge Human Centric lighting. This will help us to take the Vistara flying experience to the next level for travellers,” said Vinod Kannan, Chief Commercial Officer, Vistara.
