Airline operator Emirates is supplying its customers with innovative 3D headsets to provide an immersive cinematic experience in its lounges at Dubai International Airport, UAE.

The Skylights Theatre headsets are being trialed in the Business Class lounge in Concourse B during April, and in the First Class lounge in concourse B throughout May.

Offering a fixed screen with a wide-angle field of view for 3D and 2D content, each Skylight theatre headset weighs only 120g (0.26 lb) and offers a full high-definition viewing experience. A mixture of content will be available including 3D and 2D movies, box sets, documentaries and 360º videos. Movies include Alien: Covenant; Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; and Boss Baby, as well as episodes of documentaries such as Cosmos and Planet Earth. The service is complimentary and Emirates plans to roll out the experience across all its lounges in Dubai if successful.

Dubai International Airport is home to seven Emirates lounges spread over three concourses – A, B and C. Entry is complimentary for those traveling in Business or First Class, as well as Emirates Skywards Silver, Gold and Platinum members. Emirates Skywards Blue members can visit the lounge for a fee.
