KLM’s ‘Tune into your Travel’ makes waiting more pleasant

-

1 min read

To make waiting at airports more pleasant, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has launched “Tune into your Travel”. This augmented-reality (AR) travel channel – the first of its kind – is designed to get passengers in the mood for their trip.

Using the Facebook camera on their smartphone, passengers waiting at the airport have easy access to this new addition to KLM’s AR services on social media. With the camera on the back, passengers can explore various travel landscapes, following animated characters dancing to music. With the camera on the front, passengers can apply all sorts of entertaining face filters, allowing them to interact with images, music and sound effects activated by their own movements.

KLM at the forefront of AR applications

This AR technology presents a world of opportunity that KLM is putting to good use for its passengers. Having recently launched the AR hand baggage check in the KLM app and in KLM Messenger, “Tune into Your Travel” is the latest addition to KLM’s range of AR services.

Head over to KLM in Messenger to get in the mood for your trip. You’ll find “Tune into your Travel” in the menu under “Fun Stuff”.
