Fullerton, CA  – Adams Rite Aerospace has secured its first contract with a major US airline for its new Touchfree™ Aircraft Lavatory Product Suite, with scheduled entry into service in Q4 2022.  Touchfree™ products address both passengers’ expectations for higher hygiene and health standards, as well as airlines’ needs for lighter and more reliable products.

“The heart of the Touchfree™ Lavatory Product Suite is our new Touchfree™ faucet, which consolidates decades of touchless faucets expertise to deliver the most efficient and robust product on the market.
