Emirates to Hire 4,000 New Cabin Crew to Train for the Metaverse

While the majority of airlines have been attempting to streamline their staffing and businesses, Emirates is preparing for the metaverse. Emirates Airlines claims to be hiring 16,000 new cabin crew members, with a further 4,000 set to undergo experimental VR training.

The announcement itself was made during the two-day Dubai Metaverse Assembly.

This move makes sense for the airline firm, United Arab Emirates, which has made significant metaverse investments. The metaverse itself presents a huge chance  for the nation to diversify and boost its economy while learning how to more effectively train workers.

They will learn everything from safety procedures to best practices when in the galley through simulations inside an aircraft as part of the VR training. Additionally, the training will follow testing of real-life scenarios that crew staff may have to deal with.

The metaverse itself allows Emirates Airlines to configure it for its A350 aircraft, including how they will look as of 2024.
