Bangalore International Airport, T2 becomes the first terminal in the world that can be experienced on the metaverse.
BIAL collaborates with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Polygon, the BLR Metaport offers an immersive, three-dimensional (3D) virtual experience of the newly launched Terminal 2 at BLR Airport. Interested travellers and the public can log on to www.blrmetaport.com for a virtual tour, and navigate the new state-of-the-art terminal, using their smart devices. The BLR Metaport is an outcome of the Joint Innovation Centre (JIC) between BIAL, AWS, and Intel.
The BLR Metaport is one of the first airport metaverse experiences, designed to deliver an enhanced digital experience for travellers. A 3D interface will offer customers new ways to interact with the airport, such as checking into flights, navigating terminals, shopping, and social aspects like connecting with other travellers. BLR Metaport brings the virtual and physical worlds together to provide consistent engagement, and aims to excite travellers with new, unique, and immersive experiences.
BIAL’s Chief Strategy and Development Officer, Satyaki Raghunath said, “We are excited that BIAL is entering into the new world of metaverse through the BLR Metaport. This is our first foray into the world of Web3 and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and we aim to delight travellers with a unique, immersive, and virtual experience. We believe that it is important to connect with a new generation of our global audience through the metaverse. We also have several initiatives planned around the BLR Metaport, which promise to increase ways in which we can engage with our global audience and enhance business impact over the next few years.”
