Korean Air has introduced a groundbreaking inflight safety video featuring virtual humans, marking a first in the airline industry. The video, which was released today, showcases a virtual human named Rina, dressed in a Korean Air flight attendant uniform, and a virtual girl group called MAVE, both creations of Metaverse Entertainment of Netmarble F&C.
Set in the “Korean Air Safety Lounge,” a virtual environment designed with airplane motifs, the video aims to simplify the explanation and understanding of inflight safety rules. Rina, who has undergone safety training at Korean Air’s Cabin Crew Training Center and is an honorary flight attendant, leads the safety instructions. Meanwhile, MAVE members act as passengers adhering to these guidelines.
Korean Air's Pioneering Step Towards a New Era of Inflight Safety
The video, which will be played on all Korean Air flights starting from January 4, is also available on the airline’s official YouTube Channel (@koreanair). It covers essential safety topics such as storage of carry-on luggage, seatbelt usage, prohibited items during flight, cabin smoking regulations, procedures for cabin pressure abnormalities, locations of emergency exits, and the use of life jackets.
“This will become a great example of the synergy created between the aviation industry and digital technology. We intend to change perceptions of inflight safety videos with these new ideas, and make them more relatable and engaging for passengers,” said a Korean Air representative. The introduction of this video is part of Korean Air’s ongoing efforts to emphasize the importance of inflight safety and enhance the customer experience.
