Virgin Atlantic, Headspace partner to launch Sleep by Headspace in-flight content

Headspace has announced it has collaborated with airline partner Virgin Atlantic to launch Sleep by Headspace to help passengers and crew manage jet lag and travel space, the company said.

Sleep by Headspace launched worldwide in September 2018 and is tailored to create the ideal conditions for a healthy, restful sleep. The Headspace Sleep team developed the new collection based on prototypes tested with real users, as well as a careful review of existing clinical research. The Sleepcasts are narrated by soothing, unique voices who guide the listener through etach dreamy environment.

All of Virgin Atlantic´s pilots and cabin crew have required crew rest during their flights. Many crew choose to partake in meditation, or sleepcasts, to help them get the most out of this time. According to a recent employee survey, of the Virgin Atlantic employees who participated in a Headspace for Work program, over eighty percent of employees meditate a few times per week, with more than fifty percent reporting that they felt happier, more focused and more productive after meditating with Headspace.

Headspace aims to inspire, guide and support members every step of their meditation and mindfulness journey, reaching over 54 million users in 190 countries. Headspace is one of the leading players in the meditation category committed to advancing the field of mindfulness meditation through clinically-validated research. The company also operates a B2B business to offer its meditation products and services to more than 350 companies, such as LinkedIn, to help them build healthier, more productive cultures and higher-performing organizations.

Virgin Atlantic was founded by entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson 35 years ago with innovation and customer service at its core. Today Virgin Atlantic carries 5.4 million customers annually. The company employs over 10,000 people worldwide and operates a fleet of 46 aircraft serving 27 destinations across four continents.
