On Thursday (January 4, 2024), Korean Air released a new onboard safety video featuring virtual humans.  In the video, a virtual honorary Korean Air flight attendant gives safety instructions within a virtual environment.  The carrier hopes the video will reach their diverse customer base across all ages and cultural backgrounds, thereby increasing viewers’ engagement levels.  This marks the first time Korean Air has created a safety video with virtual humans, including Rina, the virtual cabin crew member, and MAVE, a girl group of four.  The video is a collaboration with Netmarble F&C’s Metaverse Entertainment.


In Thursday’s announcement, a Korean Air representative said,


“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.”


Korean Air began playing the new safety video across all flights on Thursday, January 4, 2024.  The video is the carrier’s latest effort to remind customers of the importance of onboard safety, while simultaneously delivering a new customer experience.
