Qatar Airways enters the metaverse

Neutral Digital congratulates Qatar Airways on entering the metaverse with the launch of QVerse – a novel virtual reality (VR) experience for visitors to the airline's website. 

Neutral Digital was selected by Qatar Airways as the development partner for the QVerse based on its industry-leading track record of creating cutting-edge immersive experiences in the aviation space. The Qatar Airways and Neutral Digital teams have collaborated closely over the past year to make the QVerse vision a reality.

The QVerse is a unique, immersive experience that allows website visitors to virtually tour and navigate the Premium Check-In area at Hamad International Airport (HIA) and the cabin interior of the airline's aircraft, including different class cabins. Most notably, the experience introduces the world's first MetaHuman cabin crew, 'Sama', demonstrating Qatar Airways' commitment to innovation and leveraging new technologies to delight customers. The MetaHuman cabin crew offers an interactive customer experience through engagement with the user.

'Sama' (whose name is of Arabic origins and translates as 'sky') is a high fidelity digital human brought to life using Epic Games' industry-leading Unreal Engine, the world's most advanced real-time 3D creation tool that's used by leading game makers, Hollywood production and special effects studios.  Neutral Digital also used Epic Games' MetaHuman Creator, a cloud-based app for creating high fidelity digital humans.

Neutral Digital Managing Director, Iain Brown, said: "The QVerse demonstrates the value of immersive 3D technology in creating the next generation of customer engagement and marketing experiences. With its track record of pioneering innovation, it is natural that Qatar Airways is leading the way in this space."

Neutral Digital is a technology company providing immersive sales & marketing platforms to help businesses across sectors increase sales and marketing ROI.  When products and services are hard to visualise, Neutral Digital's platforms use the latest 3D interactive technologies to bring storytelling to life.  Brands can showcase the full value of their products with memorable, immersive encounters.
