Qatar Airways releases ‘QVerse’ metaverse experience

Qatar Airways released a ‘QVerse’ metaverse experience which simulates boarding one of the company’s luxurious planes. Passengers can currently visit QVerse to get a virtual preview of their future flight thanks to a digital guide.

When people visit the ‘QVerse’ homepage, they are welcomed by a flight attendant from Qatar Airways, who guides them via the virtual version of the International Airport of Hamad. Thereafter, Visitors can view Economy and QSuite seats in Qatar Airways’ airplane.

According to the latest reports, Qatar Airways aims to extend this first metaverse offering in the coming months. In fact, the company’s executives think that the metaverse represents a technological breakthrough which will “empower humans.”

To make its ‘QVerse’ more comprehensive, Qatar Airways states it is compatible with Meta’s Quest VR headset. The airline noted that it might shortly allow customers to purchase NFT flight cards in the metaverse.

Though Qatar Airways is most interested in refining its ‘QVerse’, it is not opposed to working with other metaverse platforms. Actually, Qatar Airways reported that it was discovering opportunities in games such as Decentraland and The Sandbox.

Qatar Airways is one of many famous airlines that are interested in using Web3 in their business strategies. In fact, Emirates Airlines as well has ambitious metaverse plans.

Lately, Adel Ahmed Al-Redha, UAE CEO, said his company is interested in many aspects of blockchain technology, as NFTs, crypto payments, and the metaverse. Emirates states it will shortly accept bitcoins for tickets, and plans to release NFTs with loyalty profits.

Qantas Airways appears to have a similar idea with its future NFT drops. The Australian airline revealed that it would mint special NFTs which may provide Qantas Frequent Flyers bounce points.

While the mentioned airlines are still developing their NFTs, AirBaltic has already announced a few NFT series’. The Latvian-based company was the initial main airline to mint NFTs on the ETH blockchain. AirBaltic even has a 10K PFP NFT series named “Planies”.

Also, the smaller Taiwanese airline Tigerair cooperated with the MaiCoin platform to announce NFTs with its animated tiger mascot. Tigerair also stated that a lucky NFT holder would win a flight to France.

TravelX and Air Europa released NFT flight tickets on the Algorand blockchain. In December, passengers flying from Madrid to Miami will use NFTs to board their plane.
