Virgin Atlantic has today released two new apps for iPhone and iPod Touch. The Jet Lag Fighter has been developed to help travellers overcome the effects of jet lag using a program from Mental Workout and Dr Chris Idzikowski, a sleep expert. “The Jet Lag Fighter app enables passengers to train their bodies to adjust to the new time zone and enhance the quality of their trip,” explained Virgin Atlantic President Sir Richard Branson. Functions of the app include a personalised daily activity calendar providing advice based on the selected therapy type, the user’s personal profile, and trip details. In addition, the app contains a graph showing the real-time predicted adjustment, an alertness meter indicating the body’s peak levels of performance, in-flight tips based on trip length, and a multimedia guide to jet lag. The second app, the Virgin Atlantic Flight Tracker enables users to real-time track the location of Virgin aircraft and retrieve arrival and departure information. Flight paths, alerts and schedules as well as games are available on the app too.
