In an UK airline first, British Airways is trialling a new virtual reality headset on select flights in First from London Heathrow to New York JFK.

The AlloSky headsets from VR eyewear specialists, SkyLights, will give customers access to a selection of award-winning films, documentaries and travel programmes in 2D, 3D or 360° formats, as well as a specially curated range of therapeutic programmes, including guided meditation and sound therapy, specifically designed for customers who have a fear of flying.

Sajida Ismail, head of Inflight Product at British Airways, said: “We are always looking at the latest technology to enhance our customers’ experience on the ground and in the air. Virtual reality has the power to revolutionise in-flight entertainment and we’re really excited to trial these new glasses as they should create a unique and memorable journey for our First customers”.
