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.
