Delhi airport has introduced a one-of-a-kind virtual travel platform for passengers.
Known as the Virtual Reality Dome, this digital experience has been developed by a Hyderabad-based concessionaire, QuaQua that integrates 360-degree virtual reality content for the global travel and tourism industry.
Located at Terminal 3 near Gate 41, this mini planetarium features a semicircular structure and a curved screen that gives a life-size cinematic platform to offer immersive experiences to the passengers.
The virtual reality content includes roller-coaster, urban landscape and ice-age, with scenic views displayed in a curated form of storytelling.
Passengers of all age groups can enjoy the virtual reality shows for a time period ranging from seven minutes to 15 minutes at any time of the day.
To ensure social distancing, only eight people can be seated at a time. Travellers enter the dome with shoes covered to maintain hygiene and seats are sanitised after every use.
Around 80 people on an average are indulging in the new virtual travel experience per day.
Videh Kumar Jaipuriar, chief executive officer, Delhi International Airport, said:
“Delhi Airport has been a hub of experiences. With the launch of world’s first Virtual Reality Dome at the airport, we continue with our commitments to provide an enhanced travel experience to our passengers.
“The launch of this digital travel platform has been done keeping all safety measures in place given the coronavirus outbreak all over the world.”
