This month Emirates started providing an immersive cinematic experience in its lounges in Dubai International Airport by providing Skylights theatre headsets to customers. The headsets are being trialled in the Business Class lounge in Concourse B for the month of April and in the First Class lounge in concourse B in May.
The introduction of these innovative new headsets is part of Emirates’ continued commitment to improve the customer experience both on the ground and in flight. Offering a fixed-screen with a wide-angle field of view for 3D and 2D content, each Skylight theatre headset weighs only 120g and offers a Full HD viewing experience. The airline isn’t the first to trial headsets, Qantas started offering these years ago on a few First Class flights.
The headsets will be welcome to passengers who can potentially have a few hours to spend in between flights. The headsets will offer a mix of content including 3D & 2D movies, box sets, documentaries and 360-degree videos. Movies include Alien: Covenant; Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice; and Boss Baby, as well as episodes of documentaries such as Cosmos and Planet Earth. The service is complimentary to their business and first class passengers and Emirates plans to roll out the experience across all its lounges in Dubai if the trial is well received.
