Travel in style thanks to a pop-up hair sa­lon in Euro­tar’s Lon­don Ter­mi­nal. Chop-chop opened on 19th July for three months and will of­fer trav­ellers a quick hair style or cut be­fore board­ing the train. Cus­tomers can choose from 24 styles in­clud­ing quick trims, dry styles and braids all from £20. Book­ings avail­able at chop­choplon­don.com

A flight-shar­ing web­site called Wingly is of­fer­ing peo­ple the chance to pop over to France on pri­vate planes. Much like Airbnb only for flights, the ser­vice al­lows pri­vate pi­lots and mem­bers of the pub­lic to share the costs of a flight which can be a day-trip, a one-way flight or a sight­see­ing ex­cur­sion.

Air­bus has un­veiled a new plane that is able to fly 20 hours with­out stop­ping. The A350 XWB is ca­pa­ble of fly­ing up to nearly 18,000km with­out re­fu­elling thanks to a change in the fu­elling sys­tem, en­abling the air­craft to carry ex­tra kerosene and con­sume up to 25% less fuel.

There has been a sharp drop in fa­tal­i­ties on French roads ac­cord­ing to fig­ures re­leased by Sécu­rité Routière. In June 2018, a to­tal of 294 peo­ple died in road ac­ci­dents, 9.3% down com­pared with June 2017. Road deaths fell 6.3% in the se­cond quar­ter of 2018 com­pared to the same pe­riod in 2017, mean­ing 57 fewer lives were lost.

A French tech­nol­ogy com­pany has imag­ined a new, fu­tur­is­tic type of air­craft that would be a mix of plane and train: a train-like pod would pick pas­sen­gers up at a sta­tion and travel to the run­way where it would then be at­tached to a cock­pit and wings. ‘Link & Fly’ is Akka Tech­nolo­gies’ new air­craft de­sign which aims to save turnover time and make board­ing closer to pas­sen­gers’ homes.

French car man­u­fac­turer Citroën has in­tro­duced glasses that can­cel the ef­fects of mo­tion sick­ness felt by some pas­sen­gers on car jour­neys. The glasses con­tain a coloured liq­uid that recre­ates the hori­zon line to solve the con­flict be­tween the senses that causes kine­to­sis, or mo­tion sick­ness. Avail­able to buy for €99 at life­style.citroen.com
