Virgin Atlantic

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.”
