El Al has collaborated with Vanema to provide pilots on its Boeing 777, with the Octaspring cabin crew mattress, which promises better sleep quality while contributing to the airline’s reduction of CO2 emissions.
According to the airline, its developmental team set about conducting several internal tests with Ocatspring’s innovative technology and monitoring to see how it help pilot efficiency.
The improved sleep quality is expected to be achieved thanks to Octaspring’s patented foam spring technology which provides individual support and is eight times more breathable, allowing natural thermoregulation as well as higher comfort levels. Octaspring technology also uses 50% less material in its production, saving up to 3 kg of weight per mattress on the aircraft. This weight reduction also leads to a lower CO2 footprint for each flight.
El Al Airlines plans to continue monitoring further crew feedback before rolling out the program across their entire fleet of Boeing 777 airplanes.
Vanema worked in close partnership with Boxmark Leather to supply the cabin crew mattresses to El Al Israel.
