Virgin America, the low-fare, upscale airline known for offering the latest in in-flight entertainment and technology, recently launched FlightPath2D from Betria Interactive to deliver the most cutting edge in-flight Moving Map experience available. This new service has been added as part of a recent upgrade to Virgin America’s award-winning, Android-based Red in-flight entertainment system, which is currently being rolled out across the airline’s fleet and will be available on all aircraft in 2016.
“The idea behind Virgin America has always been to provide the best in-flight experience possible and put the control back in the hands of our guests, and that is why we are so excited about the addition of FlightPath2D to our Red IFE.” said Virgin America Manager of Product Development Warren Hamilton. “It is an incredibly well designed, functional and easy-to-use product and Betria’s team really delivered for us. We are thrilled with the positive feedback from our teammates and guests alike.”
As the only airline based in Silicon Valley, Virgin America has long been known for its innovative in-flight experience – including being the first (and still only) U.S. airline to offer WiFi on every flight and power outlets at every seat. Virgin America has one of the youngest fleets in the industry, with custom-designed, mood-lit cabins, comfortable leather seating and a personal seatback entertainment platform that offers every guest their own seatback touch-screen with movies, live TV, video games, a 3,000 song library and an ondemand menu, which allows flyers to order a cocktail or snack from their seatback any time during a flight. Virgin America’s new Moving Map service builds on this reputation by including detailed satellite imagery, multiple perspective views of the aircraft’s journey, and 25,000 named locations across the world in multiple languages. The FlightPath2D service is one of a family of products available from Betria Interactive including the advanced FlightPath3D Moving Map with game-like 3D Interactive capabilities as well as the Destination City Guide and Discovery Themed Map services.
“FlightPath2D is a substantial departure from the traditional moving map services seen in flight today. Our extensible platform and suite of products truly enables our airline customers to deliver an engaging experience that captures the passenger’s interests and exceeds expectations.” noted Boris Veksler, Betria Interactive’s President and CEO. “We are honored to provide our Moving Map solutions to Virgin America; one of the world’s most innovative and award winning airlines. While it is hard to improve upon such an incredible brand, we believe FlightPath2D will truly help them raise the bar even higher.”
