SunExpress will be offering in-flight entertainment via virtual reality headsets in several aircraft during summer season. The concept was implemented together with the start-up Inflight VR and will be offered successively from the end of May onwards on flights departing from Antalya.
The virtual reality headsets will be available onboard for a fee of €8 offering passengers both blockbusters with private cinema feeling to entertaining destination clips and meditative relaxation videos.
“With the introduction of VR entertainment, we write the next chapter in our innovation story” says Peter Glade, chief commercial officer at SunExpress. “Our collaboration with Inflight VR gives us a flexible, cost effective and logistically sound solution. We are proud to be offering our passengers this possibility on selected flights departing from Antalya.”
“We believe in the tremendous potential of VR to change the way passengers experience media, explore places and spaces, as well as in the added value and opportunities it creates for companies like SunExpress to interact with the customers in new ways and generate additional revenue streams”, says Raphael Baumann, chief commercial officer of Inflight VR.
