Jet lag and the biological clock

Jet lag is a temporary disruption of the body's normal biological rhythms after high-speed air travel through several time zones. When going on a long-haul flight, passengers change from one time zone to another more quickly than the inner clock can adjust. Tiredness, dizziness, mood swings, gastro-intestinal problems or headaches are just a few common symptoms.

About jetlite

Using scientific research to enhance passenger health and well-being

More than 60% of all passengers on long-haul flights suffer from jet lag. After a flight over several time zones, the passenger's biological clock is clearly disturbed, with mostly far-reaching consequences.

As airlines constantly aim to increase passenger health and well-being, jet lag reduction is a great way to contribute and differentiate from competition at the same time.

Our mission is to actively contribute to the reduction of jet lag, while increasing passenger health  and  well-being and helping airlines to distinguish from competition.

The Problem: Jet lag

Jet lag is a temporary disruption of the body's normal circadian rhythm after high-speed air travel through several time zones. When going on a long-haul flight, passengers change from one time zone to another more quickly than the inner clock can adjust. Tiredness, dizziness, mood swings, gastro-intestinal problems or headaches are just a few common symptoms.

The Solution: Human Centric Lighting

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.

What we offer

jetlite offers a holistic and algorithm-based approach to increase passenger health and well-being over the whole passenger journey by reducing jet lag through three key factors:

Cabin lighting solution

The jetlite-algorithm provides chrono-biologically improved lighting for aircraft & airports. It adapts the cabin lighting considering specific parameters. Highly-individualized lighting scenarios can be set to fit with the day and night-time biorhythms of the passengers to ensure that they arrive well-rested and with less jet lag. 

Customized nutrition concepts

jetlite has developed customized nutrition concepts for airline catering and airport services to complement the cabin lighting in order to mitigate jet lag. The key is to provide the right nutrients at the right time to either evoke sleep or activation.

App-based  recommendations

We are developing a smartphone application that calculates the ideal bedtime, light and nutrition for a passenger – days ahead of a flight based on destination and personal sleeping rhythms.

Benefits for airline & passenger.

Airline

  • Holistic concept to reduce jet lag AND INCREASE PAX WELL-BEING
  • Increase of passenger satisfaction

  • More relaxed travel experience
  • Increased performance after arrival

The Scientific Research Behind Jetlite

Mock-up cabin with test subjects and jetlite lighting concept.

Flight simulations with Osram, Airbus, Diehl and Fraunhofer Institute

The idea for jetlite first came up in the context of Founder Achim Leder's PhD dissertation at Bergische Universität Wuppertal. Osram, Airbus and Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics were convinced by the research idea and agreed to become partners. The infrastructure for the comprehensive tests was provided by Diehl.

Comprehensive tests have been conducted where long-haul flights were simulated with subjects spending ten hours at a time, three times over, in a mock-up cabin. The test group was subject to lighting with a higher red level in the evening and higher blue level in the morning. The subjects then went through the same route with normal cabin lighting.

The results of the tests were clear. When exposed to normal cabin lighting, the subjects quickly experienced typical jet lag symptoms. After applying the jetlite lighting, though, they slept more quickly and deeply and were more wide awake at the simulated arrival. Building on this concept, the jetlite algorithm to calculate the optimal lighting program for various flight routes, has been developed.

About Us.

Today's society is increasingly shaped by a non-stop 24-hour rhythm that can lead to high levels of stress for individuals. This does not only disturb people's sleep-wake cycle as their biological clock gets out of sync, but it also has a proven impact on performance and well-being.

Thus, jetlite has developed holistic and scientifically-proven solutions in different areas of life that support the inner clock and therefore actively increase individual health & well-being.

Our brand jetlite targets the aviation industry and aims to  reduce jet lag and increase passenger well-being.

Our brand chronolite offers chronobiologically improved lighting solutions to a variety of industries like automotive, hospitality or healthcare.
