British Airways has introduced a virtual learning platform for its cabin crew on Boeing 777 aircraft.

The platform means new and returning crew won't visit actual aircraft during training, instead learning via a virtual visit.

The programme uses 360 panoramic zones linked together with video. It is built in Flash and uses 3D displays that launch video instructions within each zone.

The programme will save British Airways £20,000 a year and there are more programmes being developed for other types of aircraft.

The software was developed by Line Communications.

Baljit Gill, training manager at British Airways, said, "We are really pleased with the 777 Virtual Aircraft Visit. This programme clearly shows the high level of support and investment that British Airways is willing to make towards passenger and crew safety."
