In an effort to further differentiate its premium class offering, Evelop Airlines has announced that it will introduce Inflight VR’s Virtual Reality Entertainment on its flights to Cancun, Punta Cana and Havana starting from mid-December. Based on customer feedback, the offering could then be expanded to the rest of their fleet.
“When passengers fly with us, we want them to feel that they are on holidays,” says Bruno Claeys, General Manager of Evelop Airlines. “Inflight VR’s Entertainment solution will help to make our passengers’ flights to destinations around the world a unique experience, taking them to places they have never been before. This solution aligns perfectly with our strategy which continuously introduces innovative and cost-effective improvements to our passenger experience.”
Evelop will offer the VR Entertainment free of charge to its 21 passengers in the Turista Plus class on its Airbus A350.
According to the airline, the new project aims to reaffirm the company’s growth plan in which the customer is always the most important factor of all of its strategic decisions.
“We always believed that high-end inflight entertainment is possible without breaking the bank. Not only will Evelop offer its passengers the most immersive experience available on the market, they will do so with no upfront investment and very limited impact on their operational cost.” says Raphael Baumann, CCO of Inflight VR.
“We understand how challenging it can be for airlines like Evelop to differentiate their product. Our thorough approach addresses all technical, logistic, usability and rights management aspects to make this a seamless way to amaze their passengers and build a closer relationship with Evelop’s brand.”
Using the virtual reality system, passengers can explore the airline’s destinations, relax through guided meditation, or watch movies in their own movie theatre.
