Emirates unveiled a new first-class suite on board it's latest aircraft that features virtual windows. 

On Tuesday, Emirates posted a video of its windowless planes on YouTube where a passenger will be able to see directly outside even in the absence of windows. The video shows images being projected from outside the aircraft using fibre-optic cameras. 

The airline says it paves the way for removing all windows from future planes, making them lighter and faster, according to BBC report.

Emirates president Sir Tim Clark said the images were 'so good, it's better than with the natural eye'. The virtual windows can be found in the first-class cabin of Emirates' newest Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

 "Imagine now a fuselage as you're boarding with no windows, but when you get inside, there are windows," Sir Tim Clark said.

The video shows how virtual windows display exterior views using real-time cameras mounted on the aircraft. The video starts with the plane taking-off showing the runway and the scenic backdrop of the city all on its virtual windows.
