Soon the airline will have virtual reality headsets available for passengers

Airline companies have tried to find the best way possible to entertain their passengers while they endure long flights. Last year, Air France teamed up with startup virtual reality manufacturing company SkyLights to bring virtual reality headsets to passengers on board their flights.

Instead of viewing a in-flight television show or movie from a tiny screen attached to the back of another chair, passengers can put the virtual reality headsets on and comfortable watch their choice of media much more closely. The headsets come with a pair of immersive headphones to tune out unwanted noise.

Right now, SkyLights only have four of the virtual reality headsets available in a pilot phase on an Air France Airbus A340 going between Charles de Gaulle and the St. Martin airports. When Air France releases the service to their other flights, the virtual reality headsets will become available for business-class seats.
