Virgin Atlantic paired with Headspace to launch a new in-flight offering available to not only passengers, but pilots, crew and staff as well. The Sleep by Headspace product helps travelers better manage jet lag alongside work and stress.

 

Previously, Virgin Atlantic worked with Headspace in 2011, when the airline started offering guided mediation as part of its in-flight entertainment, for programs to help travelers manage in-flight stress. Now, the in-flight entertainment includes additional Headspace products that help passengers sleep during flights. The Sleepcast, Sleep Sound and Wind Down Headspace products were created with the help of real users and clinical research.

 

“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Virgin Atlantic to address one of the most crucial roles in employee wellbeing and productivity: sleep,” said Dan Kessler, vice president, global business development, Headspace. “We have already seen positive results such as an increase in focus and productivity by providing Headspace to the Virgin Atlantic pilots, crew and staff as they manage workplace stress and jet lag. We’re excited to provide Sleep and other Headspace mindfulness content to passengers…”

 

“Virgin Atlantic is excited to continue our partnership with Headspace and lead the industry in mental health awareness efforts,” added Rebecca Creer, spas and styling manager-customer, Virgin Atlantic. “We started using Headspace on-board our aircrafts over seven years ago as we recognized the need and importance of this type of content, but since then the world has gotten busier and noisier. Caring for our customers and staff is always priority, and thanks to Sleep by Headspace we can now provide yet another tool to make their flights easier and help our customers feel less anxious and get better sleep in a simple and effective way.”

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
