Delhi airport launches facility for passengers to enjoy virtual reality shows

New Delhi: The Delhi airport has launched a facility for passengers to enjoy virtual reality shows in a semicircular structure or dome on topics such as urban landscape and ice age, its operator DIAL said on Monday.

"Located near boarding gate 41 (of Terminal 3), this mini planetarium, having a semicircular structure, boasts of a curved screen that gives a life-size cinematic platform to provide real, immersive, end-to-end travel experiences to the passengers," the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) said in a press release on Monday.

The dome has been designed and conceptualised in a way that passengers of all ages can enjoy the virtual reality shows for a time period ranging from seven minutes to 15 minutes, it added.

The "virtual reality dome" will be open 24x7 and only eight people are being allowed at a time due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the GMR group-led DIAL informed.
