At Virgin, cabin crew can familiarize themselves with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner before they ever get on board.
“By using an iOS AR app, cabin crew are able to walk through a Virgin Atlantic Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The app simulates the full-size view of the 787 and lets crew get a feel for their working location. Use of the app will complement existing classroom-based training and can be used to teach cabin crew about new aircraft in the Virgin Atlantic fleet.
Don Langford, CIO of Virgin Atlantic, said: “Today innovation is the lifeblood of a modern airline. New technologies such as augmented reality hold out the promise to better manage our airline operations while providing an enriched experience to our increasingly tech-savvy passengers. SITA has long been a partner in exploring the frontiers of technology and this AR application is no exception.”
