The United Arab Emirates and Dubai are paving their way toward developing a digital economy. They have constructed a clear vision and regulatory frameworks for data retention, digital assets, automation, and artificial intelligence. Explore more about how the emirates’ approach is in line with the UAE and Dubai’s impressive progress in developing their upgraded infrastructure.
An NFT As An Airline Ticket
Collectability and usefulness will be at the forefront of the NFT initiatives taken by Emirates Airlines. Emirates can leverage the possibilities of consuming non-fungible tokens such as airline tickets and reward tokens in addition to commercializing the NFTs. Sandbox and Decentraland are among the most famous digital universes that will provide a platform for Emirates’ first entry into the metaverse. In the minds of travelers, the possession of an NFT ticket can become a memento of a trip. For the time being, only a few sports teams and venue supervisors have accepted NFTs as a source of tickets.
A Reward System Based On NFTs
Emirates Skywards, the airline’s reward program, is leveraging blockchain technology to enhance its productivity. In partnership with blockchain company Loyyal, the project enables a shared reporting and tracking system that more than one party can operate to track the use of passenger points. NFT has made Emirates’ miles system more appealing to potential customers by converting passengers’ miles into points. As part of Emirates’ loyalty program, customers can receive NFTs as rewards when they reach a certain number of miles. In this way, they will create a sense of belonging to an elite club.
Pavilion To Be Repurposed To Craft Airline’s Future
Emirates will be repurposing its pavilion, focusing on developing an innovative hub that will attract a broader global talent pool. Further, Emirates’ futuristic projects such as NFTs, Web3, and the metaverse will be made possible by this project. Over five years ago, Emirates started using web virtual reality technology in its airlines. Using the Emirates application, customers can enjoy a 360-degree view of the cabin interior with a 3D virtual reality experience. Emirates Airlines has provided a 3D environment to passengers enabling them to reserve a preferred seat virtually. Emirates is already consuming innovative technologies to deliver the highest quality customer services.
