Virgin Atlantic introduces on-board sleep aids

Customers flying with Virgin Atlantic can now enjoy a range of ‘jetlag-busting’ aromatherapies and relaxation techniques to help them fall asleep and wake up more refreshed and acclimatised to their new time zone. Virgin Atlantic has partnered with British beauty brands de Mamiel and This Works to introduce a unique two-step aromatherapy kit to their Upper Class cabin, and was the first airline to introduce ‘Headspace’ on-board – a series of mindfulness videos to help customers feel happier and healthier when flying. All customers travelling in Upper Class will now be provided with a hot towel infused with oils, the blend of which will vary on day and night flights. Overnight flight travellers will also be provided with a deep sleep pillow spray from This Works, clinically proven to improve sleep quality and aid a better, more restful night’s sleep. The new aromatherapies are complimented by a range of on-board mindfulness films designed by the popular app ‘Headspace.’ The set of 13 films – available on the inflight entertainment – provide techniques to help customers sleep effectively on a plane – whether they are sitting up or lying down.
