Emirates introduces VR seats on its website portal

A virtual look at the Shower Spa on the Emirates A380

"We are proud to bring our flagship A380 aircraft to Islamabad, and we look forward to showcasing our innovative products on-board this iconic aircraft with the signature Emirates service", said Al Mualla.

"It's a great day today". A380 can accommodate up to 868 passengers. This will be Emirates' first A380 to touch down in Pakistan's capital.

Spirits were high on Sunday morning as Emirates' special one-off A380 flight took off for Islamabad.

Although this is a one-off flight, Emirates wants to make the A380 a regular daily flight between Dubai and Islamabad in the future.

After a welcoming ceremony, government officials, VIPs, media and members of the travel industry were given a guided tour of the A380 by Emirates cabin crew.

The A380 flight arrived Islamabad at 12:10pm (PST) marking a landmark in the aviation history of Pakistan. We have to wonder who needs a holiday after you've been on first class?

The airline has been serving the Pakistani market for more than 30 years now, or since its first plane landed in Karachi on October 25, 1985.

Since then, Emirates has expanded operations to the country and now operates 71 weekly flights between Dubai and six cities in Pakistan including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, Sialkot and Multan.

Emirates airlines has developed a reputation for offering comfort and luxury to its passengers and customers.

You'll need a VR headset like Google Cardboard to fully appreciate the experience which allows you to explore not just the cabins, but also the Onboard Lounge and Shower Spa as well. Passengers in all classes enjoyed free Wi-Fi to stay in touch with family and friends and Emirates' multi-award winning inflight entertainment system ice with up to 3,500 channels of movies, TV programmes, music and podcasts on the industry's biggest personal screens in each class of travel.
