KLM has developed a virtual reality app to enable passengers to explore its new B787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.

The new app allows a tour of both the economy and World Business Class cabins, and is available for both Android and Apple smartphones – for more information click on the links below:

KLM says that Virtual Reality “….is going to change the way of flying. We can create new worlds on board. Imagine if you could get a true cinema experience while watching a movie on board, or if we could offer people with fear of flying a more relaxed environment while in flight.

“Or how about presenting our products from the inflight magazines in a virtual shopping mall? Or if we virtually move you to a nice little french terrace during the meal on-board? The possibilities are endless.”

KLM has now received the first two of its 21-strong B787-9 order. Each aircraft will be named after a flower in recognition of the significant export market of flowers from the Netherlands.
