Lighting to reduce jet lag

Human Centric Lighting supports health, well-being and performance of humans by combining visual, biological and emotional benefits of light. The circadian rhythm can also be supported by orienting the lighting solution to the natural course of daylight.

By providing the right type of light at the right time, it is possible to adapt the biorhythms of passengers to the destination time zone and therefore reduce jet lag. Warm light for relaxation is supplied during periods of rest, whereas cooler light provides stimulation for more active phases.


In the centre of jetlite's offering is Human Centric Lighting. Based on the jetlite algorithm, jetlite is developing lighting innovations together with renowed industry partners.

jetlite controller 

jetlite and Silver Atena are developing the first stand-alone controller to fully automate the cabin lighting, based on jetlite’s Human Centric Lighting that enhances passenger well-being and reduces the effects of jet lag.

The cabin crew can start the entire lighting program easily with one click through a user-friendly interface on the Flight Attendant Panel (FAP). The program runs automatically throughout the rest of the flight, thereby drastically reducing the required work for flight attendants.

The jetlite controller ensures a standardization and harmonization of the cabin lighting quality across fleets and flight routes and is easily retrofittable as part of a routine A-check.

lite2fix is a fastening cover that digitizes the cabin from manufacturer to passenger. It simplifies the installation of the cabin sidewall and provides new ways to illuminate the aircraft cabin. 

The customizable lighting system does not only enable jetlite’s Human Centric Lighting, but also the display of airline branding or passenger information during (de)boarding.

jetlite in-seat lighting

The joint innovation concept aims to integrate the jetlite algorithm into RECARO’s business class seat. Human Centric Lighting can therefore be tailored to each passenger's needs.

The effectiveness of Human Centric Lighting is maximized through individualization by considering factors like a passenger’s chronotype or travel objective.
