Inflight VR is a Munich based company that is creating a virtual reality ecosystem for the Inflight Entertainment Industry.
Imagine a passenger who is experiencing an optimized VR inflight entertainment and infotainment. By wearing a VR headset, this passenger could simply enjoy a blockbuster movie sitting in a close to real cinema or listen to relaxing music at a tropical beach. However, Inflight VR’s vision goes far beyond this point. Virtual reality allows us to expand the airplane cabin to a universe where everything that is imaginable can be displayed. For instance, think about creating true value add for the passengers by showing them destination related information such as an immersive trip of the highlights of the city they are flying to or deals for hotels and apartments in 3D. Further, the passenger can be exposed to products and services they like in virtual stores, all bound together with personalized travel information from door to door. All of this will be experienced in a seamless and convenient way like never before thanks to the new opportunities that virtual reality can create.
Only your imagination is the limit of what can be created and we want to create it with you.
