When Arke, the Dutch charter airline branch of TUI, welcomed the Boeing 787 Dreamliner into their fleet, they approached XS2 to help show off this modern high tech aircraft.
Sure, Arke could have made a slick promotion video (besides funny commercials;) or an image gallery. But what about putting the customer virtually inside the aircraft. Using 360 image technology, the user has a 360º view of some off the Dreamliner’s areas, including the flight deck. Besides 360º, the user is also introduced to some of the Dreamliner’s features.

XS2 delivered what could best be described as a plug-in to be embedded in Arke’s own website. Below are some screens of the plug-in.
