The award-winning commercial airline is taking steps to remove windows from its cabins, replacing them with real-time projections for passengers to view while potentially increasing the efficiency of its aircrafts

Emirates Airlines recently released its newest Boeing 777-300ER, a groundbreaking plane with virtual windows in its first class cabin. With the use of fibre-optic cameras mounted to the outside of the plane, images will be projected into the cabin for passengers to enjoy.

Thanks to these windowless cabins, obstructed views and the fight over windows versus aisle seats will be a thing of the past. Sir Tim Clark, Emirates Airlines president, said that the views were “so good, it’s better than with the natural eye.”

Emirates’ new Boeing model hopes to be a stepping stone toward removing windows from all new plane models. Experts say that removing apertures from plane infrastructure altogether will make the aircrafts more structurally sound and efficient, as the crafts will have greater structural integrity. Emirates’ integration of virtual views marks a creative way to enhance the passenger experience while also serving to make planes lighter and more efficient.
