Emirates Pioneers Web Virtual Reality Technology with 3D Seat Models
Emirates has introduced 3D seat models on emirates.com, becoming the first airline to introduce web virtual reality (VR) technology on its digital platform.
The 3D seat model is a visualisation engine that displays an immersive 3D 360 degree view of the interior of the Emirates A380 and the Emirates Boeing 777, giving customers a chance to explore their seats, the spacious cabin and the Emirates onboard product.
The new feature available on emirates.com allows users to navigate through the three cabins, as well as the Onboard Lounge and Shower Spa on the Emirates A380 using navigational hotspots.
The high-quality 3D generated graphics offer an outstanding render that is close to reality. The immersive experience is now available for the three class Emirates A380 but will soon include renderings of Emirates’ entire fleet.
Customers accessing emirates.com via their mobile devices or the Emirates app for iOS and Android will also be able to explore their seats before checking in online with the 3D seat map.
The tool allows customers to navigate from one seat to another, and even allows would-be customers to book their preferred seats from within the 3D environment.
In addition to the new 3D cabin models, new product videos are available on emirates.com which illustrate the end to end travel experience across all cabins.
The videos serve as a guide, giving new customers a clear idea of all the unique features of the Emirates travel experience.
