The headsets are being trialled in the Business Class lounge in Concourse B during April and in the First Class lounge in concourse B in May.

The introduction of these innovative new headsets is part of Emirates’ continued commitment to improve the customer experience both on the ground and in flight.

Offering a fixed-screen with a wide-angle field of view for 3D and 2D content, each Skylight theatre headset offers a Full HD viewing experience.

Emirates said in a statement that a mix of content will be available including 3D & 2D movies, box sets, documentaries and 360-degree videos.

Movies include Alien: Covenant; Batman vs 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 said it plans to roll out the experience across all its lounges in Dubai if the trial is well received.
