Hand Baggage Check
KLM have just launched an Augmented Reality for hand baggage check which makes it easy for anyone with a camera phone to see if their hand baggage is of an acceptable size! KLM’s AR hand baggage check uses a transparent, virtual KLM suitcase, which indicates the permitted dimensions for hand baggage on board. AR technology makes it possible for a virtual image to be placed in reality and to be used interactively. This makes it easy for a passenger to check at home whether their hand baggage is of the correct size. The hand baggage check is available in the KLM App for iOS users.
KLM welcomed its 13th Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner at Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport from Seattle – the aircraft is aptly named Tulip. KLM’s Dreamliner’s are named after flowers or flowering plants; a typical Dutch export product that therefore resonates with KLM perfectly. Other aircraft in KLM’s B787s fleet carry names such as Orchid, Sunflower, Carnation, Lavender and Marguerite. The name of the 13th Dreamliner is no coincidence either. The Netherlands is famous for its tulips and is one of the most important exporting countries for tulips and tulip bulbs.
