Gatwick launches ‘altitude-optimised’ popcorn as Brits say watching ‘Jet-flicks’ is the best perk of long-haul flying

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

  • London Gatwick has appointed Mark Kermode as its first official film critic
  • Flyers can pick up ‘altitude-optimised’ umami-flavoured popcorn at the airport
  • 51% of Brits claim watching films is one of the main perks of long-distance travel

With more than half of Brits (51 per cent) believing that binging on movies is one of the biggest perks of long-haul travel, Gatwick Airport is launching a new initiative to make the in-flight movie experience extra special for flying film fans this autumn.

Mark Kermode has been appointed as the airport’s first official film critic and has produced a handy brochure for passengers, critiquing the in-flight movie selections of airlines flying from Gatwick.

Mark Kermode said:

Watching movies is one of the greatest pleasures of flying – the perfect time to catch up on the latest releases or revisit old favourites. Even long-haul journeys can fly by if you pick the right film, whether it’s a tear-jerker, action adventure or rom-com. As someone who has spent hundreds of hours watching in-flight movies, it’s been great fun teaming up with Gatwick to look at the films on offer to passengers this autumn.”

Alongside Kermode’s guide, the airport has created ‘altitude-optimised’ popcorn, which will be available for passengers to pick up in the terminal and enjoy above the clouds. The popcorn is flavoured with toasted cheese, Marmite and goats cheese – all foods which are rich in umami, the only one of the five main taste sensations which is completely unaffected by altitude.

Kermode’s brochure – which advises passengers on the films that will relax them, keep them awake or even encourage them to shed a few tears while they’re on-board – follows research by Gatwick that shows one in six Brits (16 per cent) find watching films on a plane is more emotionally intense than watching at home or at the cinema.

With more than one in ten Brits (11 per cent) admitting to having cried at a film on a plane, it appears that men are more emotional in-flight movie-watchers than women – a sixth (16 per cent) confessed to being more likely to sob while watching a movie in the air than on the ground, compared with just six per cent of females.

Dr Emily Grossman, Human Biologist, said:

There are many reasons why our emotions may feel heightened on a flight and one of the most interesting is a possible physiological link between altitude and emotion. Some believe that the slight reduction in oxygen levels at high altitude might affect the levels of serotonin and dopamine in the brain, thus altering our mood and potentially making some of us more susceptible to feelings of sadness. Altitude can certainly make us feel more tired, which is known to decrease our ability to be able to manage negative emotions, perhaps explaining our reduced threshold for tears.”

In spite of their potential to make some of us weep, in-flight movies are the favoured means of entertainment on long-haul flights for the majority of Brits (52 per cent). Many passengers are also using the opportunity to enjoy a ‘Jet-flicks’ binge, with 54 per cent revealing the only time they would watch two or more films back-to-back is while on-board a plane.

Given the heightened emotions involved, it’s perhaps unsurprising that comedy is the favourite on-board film genre of the majority of Brits (51 per cent). This is followed by action movies (34 per cent) and dramas (32 per cent) – although not everyone chooses to watch what they necessarily want to, as one in five Brits (20 per cent) admit to avoiding certain movies on flights that they would normally watch at home to prevent embarrassment.

In-flight movie-watching is also considered a sociable experience by a number of Brits, with a third (30 per cent) claiming they like to watch the same film as their travel companion at the same time so they can enjoy it together.

Gatwick Terminal Operations Manager Wayne Tomlinson said:

“Long-haul flights give passengers a near unique opportunity to fully immerse themselves in some great films, uninterrupted by modern technology or other distractions. By working with Mark Kermode, one of the biggest names in the film industry, we’re excited to offer passengers a comprehensive and unrivalled guide to their in-flight movie options before they head off on their travels all around the world from Gatwick.”

World first airline connections service announced as easyJet, Norwegian and WestJet partner with GatwickConnects

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

  • GatwickConnects lets passengers seamlessly self-connect between different airlines at the airport in a single transaction
  • EasyJet passengers to use GatwickConnects to combine flights through Gatwick – the airport with the UK’s largest route network including over 60 long haul routes
  • The new partnership means air travellers from UK regions are better connected and can save money

A new partnership announced today creates the world’s first global airline connections service by a low fares airline and will see passengers seamlessly self-connect with different airlines through Gatwick in a single transaction.

Worldwide by easyJet’ will  see ‘GatwickConnects’ – the airport’s connections service – integrated into easyjet.com so that the airline’s passengers can more easily book a wide range of connecting flights through Gatwick at the touch of a button.

Passengers will be able to connect with either another easyJet flight or one flown by low cost long haul airlines Norwegian and WestJet. More long haul airlines are also expected to join up soon.

Gatwick is uniquely placed to offer the connections service as it has the largest route network of any UK airport.  easyJet currently flies 110 routes from the airport, Norwegian offers 50 destinations – including low cost long haul services to eleven US cities, Singapore and Buenos Aires – and WestJet flies to six cities across Canada.

GatwickConnects – a world first service launched in 2015 – means that the 1.7 million passengers that self-connect through the airport each year can combine a wide range of non-interlined flights provided by different airlines at the airport more easily in a single transaction – rather than having to book separate flights.

GatwickConnects also means that air travellers from UK regions are better connected, can save money and can also benefit from GatwickConnects Protected Connection which will issue replacement flights, hotel and meal vouchers in the event of flight cancellations, delays and flight rescheduling.

The service also takes the strain out of making a self-connecting flight as – not only do passengers no longer need to make separate bookings – but via specialist desks in Gatwick’s baggage reclaim halls – passengers’ bags are taken and loaded on the next flight allowing customers to go straight through security.

Guy Stephenson, Chief Commercial Officer, Gatwick Airport, said: “easyJet is Gatwick’s biggest airline and this world-first partnership with GatwickConnects, means that easyJet passengers can easily and quickly self-connect with other flights in Gatwick’s diverse network of flights including over 60 long haul routes.

GatwickConnects lets passengers seamlessly self-connect between different airlines at Gatwick at the touch of the button.  It gives passengers more choice, provides genuine savings and takes the hassle out of self-connecting by protecting against missed connections, putting baggage on the onward flight and offering a range of other hospitality benefits.”

Peter Duffy, Chief Commercial Officer, easyJet, said:

“Around 70m passengers flying through an easyJet airport each year are connecting on to other flights, mainly long haul, and it is this market segment that Worldwide by easyJet will open up for us.

“We know there is a real customer demand for making flight connections on easyJet easier.   Almost 200k easyJet passengers a year already self-connect their easyJet flights through Gatwick Airport.  That’s c.1% of our passengers at the airport and that doesn’t include those connecting between easyJet and long haul flights.

“We are delighted with the partners who have signed up for our launch today.  We are confident it will be popular with customers and look forward to announcing more partners in the near future.
