Our resident film buff, Jason Solomons, whizzes through some of the latest film releases available on Vera when flying with Virgin Atlantic in February.
It’s no secret that we’ve got a little showbiz in our DNA, and that rings true more than ever when you fly with us. It’s not just about giving you hundreds of blockbusters either. In fact we’re pretty picky, in a good way.
Our Onboard Media Team is dedicated to reviewing and selecting the latest content creating a buzz in film, TV and music circles, as well as onboard with us. We’ll scour the globe from Hollywood to Bollywood to ensure we’ve got something to suit your taste, mood or whim onboard.
Sometimes you’ll even get to see trend-setting international productions before they’re aired in the UK!
“As well as championing emerging music, film and TV, we also promote some great films that are unlikely to be shown on other airlines such as Shame, ill Manors and Flight.
And We’re really proud to have recently introduced an exciting, up-to-the minute line of up of “as live” sport in partnership with Sky Sports which includes weekly highlights from cricket AM and soccer AM plus a weekly radio round-up from Sky Sports News”.
We’ve teamed up with entertainment guru and acclaimed film critic Jason Solomons to bring you What’s on Vera. Shot monthly in a new independent cinema location, our show introduces you to an eclectic mix of offbeat gems and best-kept secrets that you might not usually go for.
We’re taking things a few steps further with many ‘firsts’ in our award-winning new entertainment system, Vera Touch. We want you to enjoy getting the most from this cutting edge technology, so we worked closely with London-based Airside and Massive in Sydney to create the easiest, most intuitive tablet style touch screen system in the air.
