Inspiration to destination with new iflyA380 app

Posted 26 January 2018 · Add Comment

With the new iflyA380 iOS app, world travellers can book a flight aboard Airbus’ flagship A380 jetliner, take a 360° tour of the cabin ahead of time, then interact with the aircraft in augmented reality once en route to destinations.

The iflyA380 app from Airbus does all this and more as it helps its users manage trips more efficiently. Users are able to browse all A380 flights offered by 13 operators and select one of the 53 worldwide destinations they serve. Once the desired departure city, destination and travel dates have been chosen, booking is finalised through the selected airline at no additional cost. While on board, travellers can take advantage of a connected and immersive in-flight experience thanks to Apple’s augmented reality functionalities.

Airbus’ free app, available in Apple’s App Store, builds on the success of the iflyA380 website, launched last year to make flying on the spacious A380 a matter of choice rather than chance. Noting that 98% of surveyed passengers would recommend flying on the iconic double deck aircraft to their friends and family, Airbus Digital Transformation Officer Marc Fontaine said the new app is “set to make the passengers’ favourite flight experience even more memorable, from travel inspiration to their final destination.”

“Response to the iflyA380.com website has been fantastic,” Fontaine added. “The iflyA380app is a new step for Airbus towards developing digital services that directly benefit consumers.”
