As the world is upgrading towards a new technology, Metaverse, Qatar Airways took the lead in this creating their own Metaverse with the name ‘QVerse’. Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “With physical boundaries beginning to be challenged by the metaverse on an increasingly larger scale, it is exciting to embrace a technology that enables all travel enthusiasts to enjoy a unique immersive experience of our award-winning products and services.” Users of the www.qatarairways.com/QVerse website can now virtually tour and navigate the Premium Check-in area at Hamad International Airport (HIA), the cabin interior of the airline’s aircraft, including the award-winning Business Class – Qsuite, and the Economy Class cabin, by using their own Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs). The national carrier of the State of Qatar is also the first global airline to introduce a MetaHuman cabin crew offering a digital interactive customer experience. This shares the idea how seriously the Qatar Airways takes the technology and leads in many regions.
