PaxEx: Travel From Home with KLM’s New VR Experience
From 19 November, 2018, KLM passengers who are in the mood for a faraway trip, won’t have to leave their homes. With KLM's new iFly virtual reality (VR), they can now take a virtual trip.
KLM’s online platform uses VR to let visitors experience a near-lifelike journey. KLM wants to inspire people to travel and discover the world with the help of the latest technology.
iFly VR captures some of the most beautiful places in the world in 360 degrees and is hosted by the famous “Fearless Chef” Kiran Jethwa.
In the first of three editions, Jethwa takes viewers to the Thai jungle where he heads off in search of the world’s most remarkable coffee beans.
In the first episode, Jethwa guides his viewers through the delicate production process, from coffee bean to steaming cup of coffee. This special coffee is produced with the help of elephants.
The VR experience ensures that you really experience it up close, putting you literally face-to-face with these majestic beasts.
KLM has a reputation to uphold when it comes to applying technological innovation to provide customers with a memorable travel experience. We have introduced iFly VR to emphasise this.
Very soon, iFly will show you breath-taking travel videos that allow you to see 360 degrees around you. You’ll have time to take in all the splendour of the surroundings, so it’s nearly as impressive as real travel.
You can enjoy the new videos with VR glasses, or on a tablet or smartphone. KLM’s next iFly VR production will take place in Hawaii.
