Virtual Reality Giving Airplane Cleaners a Head Start

January 14, 2020

Cleaners who maintain aircraft for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines are able to familiarize themselves with the cabin layout before they start work thanks to a new virtual reality (VR) program, European Cleaning Journal reports.

Aircraft cleaning requires quick turnaround as to not disrupt flight schedules yet needs to be thorough to protect passenger health. To help cleaners make the most of their limited time onboard, KLM provides them with virtual reality tours of 14 different aircraft configurations.

The airline began the program by providing cleaning staff with a virtual reality tour of a B787 aircraft through an iPad and VR headset. After experiencing the layout of the plane ahead of time, staff members were able to finish cleaning it 15 minutes early without missing any areas or forgetting any tasks.
