Tom Stevens, British Airways Head of Customer at Heathrow, said, We are always looking at new and innovative ways to engage with our customers and virtual reality is the latest way we are using a rapidly evolving area of technology to further improve the airport experience. Im thrilled British Airways is the first UK airline to be using the technology ... Were really excited about the many opportunities virtual technology offers for our customers on the ground, and in the air.

The virtual reality headsets are from tech start-up Skylights, which is part of British Airways parent company IAGs Hangar 51 start-up accelerator programme.
