Skyteam lounge at DXB offers immersive headsets

By Rick Lundstrom

SkyTeam, the global airline alliance, is teaming up with high-tech start-up SkyLights for a two-month period to offer passengers multimedia content on immersive Bravo headsets and enjoy the latest cinematic VR technology before they fly at the alliance lounge at Dubai International Airport. 

Bravo headsets are lightweight and offer up to six hours battery life. Customers flying on one of the SkyTeam airlines serving Dubai can request a complimentary Bravo headset and select from entertainment options that include: 2D, 3D and carefully curated 180°/360° content, early window blockbuster films, series and documentaries and a wide-angle cinema screen experience.

“Our Frequent Flyers are increasingly tech-savvy and because they spend so many hours in the air, we’re making sure their time on the ground is worthwhile by investing in technology to enhance the experience we offer in our lounges,” said Mauro Oretti, SkyTeam’s Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “Our partnership with SkyLights gives them a chance to relax and immerse themselves in a private IMAX-style movie theater from the comfort of their airport lounge seat.”

SkyTeam’s Dubai lounge is available to Elite Plus, First and Business Class passengers of all member airlines serving the airport:  Aeroflot, Air France, and China Eastern, China Southern, Kenya Airways, Korean Air, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Middle East Airlines, Saudia and Tarom.

“For many guests, it will be the first time they have experienced this remarkable new type of entertainment, making it a great opportunity to create a memorable moment with them,” said David Dicko, SkyLights CEO. “Teaming up with SkyTeam on this project is a significant step towards our mission of transforming the passenger journey both inflight and on the ground.”
