Emirates plays with light

TRAVELLERS to far-away destinations will appreciate Emirates airlines’ latest effort to help passengers adjust to jet lag.

As of next month, an image of a Dubai night sky, complete with twinkling constellations, will illuminate the ceiling of its Airbus A340-500 cabins at night.

Many travellers might prefer more leg room or perhaps beds to help them better cope with long-haul flights, but Emirates group president Maurice Flanagan said the human body clock is intrinsically linked to light.

“Our bodies are conditioned to react to light and reset the internal clock,” he said.

“It’s impossible to overstate the impact this has on our comfort and well-being.”

The cabin lighting progresses from sunshine to dusk to the starry night
