What is QVerse?

Qatar Airways has launched QVerse, a revolutionary virtual reality (VR) experience for visitors to the airline’s website.

By using their own Personal Electronic Devices, users of the https://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 (PEDs).
The official airline of the State of Qatar is also the first in the world to use MetaHuman cabin staff to provide a digital interactive customer experience.

His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Group Chief Executive of Qatar Airways, stated, “With physical boundaries beginning to be challenged on an increasingly larger scale by the metaverse, 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.”

“Our distinction as the first airline to offer a MetaHuman cabin crew demonstrates our unrelenting ambition to innovate and please our passengers,” he continued.
We are continually looking forward to adopting and implementing new technology that will improve the overall experience of our guests.”

Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, the world’s most powerful real-time 3D production engine, and MetaHuman Creator, a cloud-based program for building high-fidelity artificial humans, were used to create the experience.

Qatar Airways is the first worldwide airline to use a MetaHuman cabin crew, which includes a digitally produced high-fidelity 3D human model dubbed ‘Sama,’ which is Arabic for’sky.’
‘Sama’ provides an interactive customer experience by engaging the user and bringing them on a virtual voyage of discovery, all while displaying the distinctive features in both the Business and Economy Class cabins via a narrated screenplay.
