This Japanese VR Airline Taking Wishful Travellers On virtual Reality First Class Flights To Paris
Have you ever thought about visiting Paris just in 110 minutes? Now it is possible! The idea of offering consumers Virtual Reality (VR) experiences related to travel is something we have seen before. An example is the Swedish airport with an immersive Climate Portal, which allows travelers to experience the weather conditions of countries across the world. Another interesting application of VR aims to help customers to choose and book their holiday. Now, the Japanese company First Airlines has gone a step further, simulating the entire experience of a trip abroad. Guests can choose between a variety of destinations, including Paris, Rome, New York, and Hawaii. Upon “arrival,” including a simulated landing, curious travelers enjoy a 360-degree city tour. Currently, the Tokyo-based airplane is able to serve 8 first-class guests and 4 business-class guests at a time, and charges are around AUD $72 for a first-class “trip” to New York (minus the jet lag).
