FlightPath3D has won the ‘Preferred App’ award and was joint winner of the ‘Best Innovation’ award at Airbus’s First Online Hackathon.
The Hackathon, held from 7-9 July, is part of Airbus‘ #KeepTrustInAirTravel initiative and is designed to develop OnBoard Digital Solutions on an Airbus Open Software Platform to support better operations in a post-COVID world.
FlightPath3D CEO Boris Veksler said: “We leveraged our HTML/WebGL streaming 3D map and via our Open API platform integrated 3rd party content into our map, and vice versa provided map features into 3rd party apps. The innovation we achieved is linked to the openness of the Airbus platform, and to the eco-system of App developers that are compatible with the platform.”
FlightPath3D President Duncan Jackson added: “We integrated duty-free merchandising, advertising, and the ability to buy with a payment solution into our map. 3rd party apps used our destination content, street maps, and flight tracker to augment their already highlyfunctional apps.”
