Emirates unveils 360-degree A380 view

Want to know what the view is like from Seat 2K aboard the Emirates A380 before buying a ticket? You can now find out thanks to Emirates’ newly released 360-degree cabin view.

Dubai-based carrier Emirates has become the first airline to introduce an immersive 360-degree inside their aircraft, allowing guests to explore the seats and onboard product, and get a feel for the inflight offering without needing to step foot inside the aircraft.

The new feature, now available on emirates.com, allows users to navigate through the Economy, Business and First Class cabins, as well as the iconic Onboard Lounge and Shower Spa on the Emirates A380 using navigational hotspots.

Alex Knigge, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications, Marketing and Brand (Digital), said: “As we continually invest to provide our customers with an unmatched travel experience onboard and on the ground, we also work very hard to give our customers a world-class digital experience.”

“We are pleased to be the world’s first airline to introduce this cutting-edge web VR technology, which offers our customers an immersive opportunity to learn more about the fantastic Emirates experience before they step on board. In our usability tests with customers, we found that they particularly appreciated the 3D seat and cabin models when selecting their seats.”

In addition to the 3D cabin models, new product videos across all cabin types have also been released.
