Air New Zealand Enhances Inflight Experience with NASA Technology

Air New Zealand has turned to technology used by NASA to enhance the inflight sleep experience of passengers.

The new hypo allergenic pillow, available in Business Premier on the airline's Chicago route, is coated with Outlast which was developed for use in space gloves to protect against extreme temperature fluctuations and keep hands cool.

The temperature regulating product, awarded certified space technology by the Space Foundation, absorbs heat as the skin gets hot and as the skin cools the heat is released.

Air New Zealand Senior Manager Customer Experience Niki Chave, said, "We know quality sleep is important to our passengers, particularly those travelling in Business Premier on our long haul routes. This pillow allows passengers to lay on the side that regulates their temperature or sleep on the regular side, which ultimately gives them more control over their environment."

The pillow is now available alongside the All Birds eye mask to enhance comfort on the Chicago route, the longest in Air New Zealand's network.

The pillow is manufactured by premium German bedding company Paradies.
