Austrian Airlines has made this announcement:
From now on, Austrian Airlines passengers on flights operated by a Boeing 777 aircraft can virtually discover their favorite seat and reserve it directly during the booking process via a new 3D Seatmap. Previously, this was only available in a two-dimensional version. For the implementation of the 3D Seatmaps, Austrian Airlines is working with the Spanish agency Renacen.
With this innovative service, passengers already get an insight into the experience on board during the booking process – in all travel classes: Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class. Austrian Airlines operates flights to Los Angeles, New York, Cape Town, Mauritius, Bangkok, Tokyo and others with Boeing 777 aircraft. With this innovation project, the Austrian home carrier is a pioneer within the Lufthansa Group. By the end of the year, the function will also be available in the Web Check-in Portal. A further expansion of the service is planned.
