Press Release hub banner blue with title in red white and blueFlightPath3D, the leading inflight map solution, has achieved a significant milestone with 5,000 active installations across more than 80 airlines, highlighting its market leadership and broad compatibility. This achievement reflects FlightPath3D’s mission to guide every flying passenger. The 5,000th activation was on a Virgin Atlantic A350, named Wendy Darling, continuing a decade of collaboration between the companies. 

Nathan Bolt, Head of Digital Product & Journeys at Virgin Atlantic, notes, “Our partnership with FlightPath3D keeps our passengers both informed and engaged. The seamless updates and synchronization of the map across multiple IFE providers ensure our passenger experience remains consistent across our fleet now and as it continues to grow.”

FlightPath3D’s commitment to enhancing inflight experiences across all IFE platforms and airline portals has resulted in millions of passengers using the map on both seatback and mobile. The map’s features, like detailed flight tracking and augmented reality views, help transform every journey into an immersive experience. Valuable passenger insights around usage and interests provides airlines with the ability to stimulate future flight demand, while integrated advertising opens new revenue streams.

“Surpassing 5,000 aircraft installations marks a significant milestone and confirms the universal appeal of our platform,” adds Duncan Jackson, President of FlightPath3D. “With FlightPath3D, airlines can deploy advanced inflight map solutions on any device to increase passenger engagement while driving revenue.”


The map interface is already the most engaging portion of the inflight entertainment experience, providing outsized value to airline partners. FlightPath3D has expanded that with Destination Guide, a video-based travel guide that takes a social style approach with saveable and shareable features to make discovering places and travel promotions while inflight accessible and fun. 

FlightPath3D’s diverse clientele, including presidential aircraft, business jets, airlines, and major international airports, has been a driver for continued innovation of new features and products. The company’s Route Map and Destination Guide video platform are increasingly being adopted by airports worldwide, helping to inspire travelers during the planning stages of their trips, with activations at over a dozen leading airports like Heathrow, Philadelphia, and Houston.

In addition, accessibility is top of mind for FlightPath3D. Ensuring the map is configured for every passenger need will be a common theme in the coming months.
