Reinventing the Travel Experience

In November 2016, American Airlines and Westfield partnered with Facebook to bring an immersive virtual reality experience with Samsung’s Gear VR, powered by Oculus to JFK’s terminal 8 travelers. 

Westfield and American Airlines have introduced a virtual reality experience to travellers at JFK International Airport Terminal 8, through a new pop-up unit. It is part of Facebook’s Virtual Reality Roadshow.

Facebook is offering the experience in 28 cities with Samsung’s Gear VR, powered by Oculus. The JFK pop-up will remain in the terminal, post-security, until 27 January.

Travellers are greeted by a Facebook brand ambassador and given an introduction to virtual reality. Viewers are transported through a series of scenes, ranging from meeting a dinosaur up close, boating through a Southeast Asian village and getting dunked on by basketball star LeBron James.
