UAE’s national airline Etihad Airways and Panasonic Avionics Corporation have entered into a partnership to jointly develop and trial wellness solutions aimed at enhancing the traveller experience.
As part of the partnership, Etihad will be the first airline to trial Panasonic’s new Jet Lag Adviser, which was developed in collaboration with Detalytics. The solution, which leverages artificial intelligence (AI), will be integrated into the airline’s passenger app.
To help passengers combat jet lag, the Jet Lag Adviser takes a range of passenger inputs including chronotype, circadian rhythms, height, weight, the nature of travel, and travel information such as flight times, routes and zones and uses its artificial intelligence engine to produce personalised jet lag plans for passengers with tailored advisories to help them reduce jet lag. Throughout each phase of the travel experience, the Jet Lag Adviser will send reminders with recommended actions to passengers via the app. Panasonic is also exploring further wellness technologies with Etihad.
