Dubai’s Emirates airline believes the future is now. Without further ado, the world-renowned airline plans to train future cabin crew in the metaverse, as revealed by a senior exec at the Dubai Metaverse Assembly. The revelation was made by Adel Ahmed Al Redha, chief operating officer of Emirates, who articulated the airline would hire 4,000 cabin crew to train in the metaverse. A year ago, Emirate announced its intention to enter the metaverse. They are moving ahead by training crew in a virtual reality environment and even participating in simulated real-life scenarios. This will become even more achievable with the A350 commercial aircraft configured in Humboldt, USA.

The metaverse and virtual reality would be used to simulate walking into airplanes and analyzing every detail, per Investing.com. Al Redha stated, “We used metaverse, virtual reality, and walked into the aircraft and looked at every detail, every gap in the aircraft, whether it is in the galley or with the seats. We have configured an aircraft and what we see there today is exactly what we’ll see in 2024.” Emirates is a pioneering airline that has maintained the highest standards for decades and faultlessly. Hence, trainees will continue to attend the airline’s state-of-the-art aviation training college in Dubai to complete practical hands-on sessions such as aircraft evacuation, ditching, and medical emergency scenarios.
