Hello,

I was wondering how a commercial aircraft gets some humidity in the air for the cabin during flight. To tell you the truth, I'm not even sure if they have a system that can control that. It gets pretty dry up there, especially during long flights. Just curious! Thanks a lot.

Pilotman,
I don't know how the climate is controlled but I was just thumbing through this months Popular Science and it goes on to say that the 7E7 will have a humidity control system to add a bit of humidity in the cabin so it isn't like the Sahara.  Smile

Regards.

Dry air and not too high temperature in the cabin help to avoid bad odors. Just imagine a warm, humid cabin climate!
Well I know there are more reasons than this, but this is one of the reasons why they dont have a slightly more humid climate. Heck, it would be easy to have it, trechnically. Air humidifiers are nothing fancy.

If you would like to learn more about the technologies of cabin humidity and related stuff, I suggest you visit CTT's website. CTT is a manufaturer of moisture management systems to get humidity on the right level.

Both, Airbus and Boeing are offering CTT's products as options on certain planes.

In order to get humidity, you need water. The longer the trip, the more water you need. the more water you carry, the heavier the aircraft. You know where this is going...  Smile
