Royal Dutch 787 VR experience

Experiencing the brand new KLM Boeing 787 Dreamliner without the need to actually buy a ticket. Sounds good but kind of strange, right? We made it possible by creating a virtual reality tour of the brand new KLM Boeing 787 Dreamliner: a great way of exploring and showcasing the special features of the airplane.

The challenge

KLM is expanding its fleet with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. KLM was looking for a suitable and innovative way of presenting the new aircraft and its special features to the public. The Virtual Dutch Men created the virtual reality experience ‘Royal Dutch 787 VR Experience’ for passengers of the three Welcome Flights to have a preview of the new aircraft while waiting at the gate.

Jacob Post, Cabin Innovation Manager at KLM: “This plane has so many innovative features, so we went in search of a great way to put this across to the public. This led to the ‘Royal Dutch 787 VR Experience’, a VR app that gives you the feeling you’re really aboard the Dreamliner. The response has been fantastic!”

The solution

The experience submerges passengers in an exclusive virtual reality tour to discover the brand new airplane and its special features. Passengers earned points by marking these special features in the virtual experience, which resulted in a total impression of the airplane. Like most cases, we used existing 3D models for the VR expience. This enabled us to create the VR experience even quicker, which can be cost and time effective for the client. Sinke Illustraties supplied the 3D models for this case.

The experience

The virtual reality experience was launched at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol at the gate of the three Welcome Flights with the KLM Boeing 787 Dreamliner on Sunday 22 November 2015. Users of the ‘Royal Dutch 787 VR Experience’ were enthusiastic about the experience and didn’t even want to stop until all 15 features of the aircraft were found.
