Air France is Trialing Immersive In-Flight Entertainment Headsets

Air France partnered with tech start-up 'SkyLights' to bring passengers immersive in-flight entertainment headsets.

SkyLights provided Air France with four immersive headsets that will play entertainment in 2D and 3D options. Business class passengers on flights from Paris (Charles de Gaulle airport) and St. Martin will be part of the trial. Those with access to the headsets can choose between 40 films and series over the course of the flight.

According to a press release issued by Air France, "This trial run will be a valuable learning experience for the company and confirms the importance of improving the customer experience with original and innovative solutions." The trial serve the dual purpose of piloting an immersive entertainment system for Air France, while helping to perfect the technology behind the SkyLights headsets. By the end of the trial period, Air France may decide to implement these immersive in-flight headsets on other flight plans.
