Jet2.com Partners With IWG, Installing Pre-Select to Support Aircraft Weight and Emissions Reductions

SURREY, British Columbia, January 4, 2024 (Newswire.com) – International Water-Guard Industries, Inc. (IWG) and Jet2.com have entered into an agreement to install IWG’s patented “Pre-Select” Intelligent Water Quantity System on 52 B737-800 NG aircraft, making Jet2.com the first airline in Europe to use the product.

Jet2.com has chosen the IWG Pre-Select system, which enables operators to accurately manage the amount of potable water carried based on data of actual usage from IWG’s proprietary system, providing weight and jet fuel savings. IWG’s Pre-Select is Transport Canada, FAA, and EASA approved, with STCs for Boeing’s 737NG and the MAX -8 and -9 aircraft and installations completed in Canada, Europe, and the Americas. 

“The IWG Pre-Select System provides immediate fuel and carbon savings by reducing aircraft weight through effective water management. Through trials with airlines, IWG has compiled a sizeable amount of data supporting the efficiencies gained through Pre-Select, and we are pleased to have Jet2.com become the first airline in Europe to take advantage of our product to help meet their operational goals and reduce emissions from flight,” said Steven Bis, President and CEO of IWG.

“We are thrilled to partner with Jet2.com as our Pre-Select launch customer in Europe. Potable water management provides a tremendous return on investment and supports Jet2’s sustainability strategy. Pre-select reduces aircraft weight as much as 180kg, 400lbs on each flight, providing a reduction in fuel required and carbon emissions. We look forward to further enhancing our systems and working together to support Jet2.com’s specific requirements as well as installations with their additional fleet types,”  added Larry Morasch, Director of Sales with International Water-Guard. 

Chris Hubbard, Director of Engineering & Maintenance at Jet2.com, said: “Travel and tourism is a force for good and, like all industries, we know how critical it is to reduce our climate impacts. We have already taken a number of tangible actions on our journey to Net Zero, and we are very pleased to be the first European airline to partner with IWG and install the Pre-Select system, which will help us achieve weight reduction benefits to further support that journey.”

Reducing Contact  |  IWG Healthy LAV

As the aviation industry deals with the effects of the global pandemic, passenger health has never been so much in focus. As well as working to safeguard cabin hygiene measures can also have a vital role to play in making passengers feel more confident about flying. Of all areas on board, it is easy to see why the lavatory would be a key area for passenger anxiety.

International Water-Guard (IWG) has been concerned with passenger health since it began using ultraviolet (UV) light to disinfect aircraft water more than 30 years ago. The company continues to develop products that promote passenger health. Its new Healthy Lav collection includes various touchless and disinfection technologies, all designed to help business jet OEMs, luxury charter airlines, fractional ownership companies, head-of-state and other corporate jet operators meet the challenges of improving lavatory hygiene.
