Korean low- cost carrier Jin Air has partnered with Inflight VR to offer Virtual Reality (VR) in-flight entertainment to its passengers.
Jin Air will trial 10 devices on daily flights between Seoul, South Korea and Da Nang, Vietnam to get additional passenger insight on usage preferences and the adequate rental price before deploying it to their whole fleet.
“VR is one of the biggest emerging technologies these days. Our increasingly technology savvy passengers expect more than the standard entertainment on most airlines. Our collaboration with Inflight VR and their thoroughly developed solution will meet our passengers’ increasing demand for flight entertainment, and help Jin Air’s brand to stand out,” commented Lee, Jin Air’s Head of IT Strategy Team.
Inflight VR’s chief commercial officer Raphael Baumann added: “We make Virtual Reality work. Take aside that some passengers cry for amazement using our solution. Our thorough approach addresses all technical, logistic, usability and rights management aspects to make this a seamless way for airlines to bring innovation to their passengers”.
