HomeAirlinesSuper surround sound on films on long-haul flights

Advances in technology mean anyone flying in any British Airways cabin, using either their own headphones or those provided can hear the new 3D surround sound.

The first movies to use the high-tech audio tracks on flights are Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. While not every movie will be adapted to the new technology, more films with 3-D sound will be added to flights over the coming months.

British Airways has also started to roll out a new range of headphones for customers in every cabin offering better sound reproduction and greater reliability.

Those travelling in First, Club World and World Traveller Plus will be able to listen to movies, TV shows and audio tracks through headphones with improved noise cancelling technology, while those flying in World Traveller can use new silicone tipped earbuds offering greater noise isolation and comfort, which they can take home with them.
