Singapore Airlines unveils VR booth for travelers at Wellington Airport

Visitors to Wellington Airport in New Zealand can take a virtual trip to Singapore using a new virtual reality (VR) booth installed by Singapore Airlines in partnership with Wrestler, a local VR/AR video agency.

Steve Sanderson, chief executive, Wellington Airport, said, “Wellingtonians have embraced the connectivity that the flights have delivered, traveling to a variety of destinations across the Singapore Airlines global network. Thanks to VR technology, Wellington Airport is able to give everyone a taste of the travel and sightseeing experiences this service offers.”

The fully immersive and interactive experience takes viewers on a trip across the world that starts in Wellington Airport and stops off at Changi Airport, before heading to either Phuket, Thailand; London, UK; or elsewhere in Singapore. Experiences include sending paper lanterns into the sunset in Phuket, playing drums at the changing of the palace guard in London, and catching butterflies in Singapore’s Garden by the Bay.

Kat Lintott, head of VR/AR, Wrestler, said, “Creating a fully immersive journey that takes travelers around the world with Singapore Airlines was a great challenge and one we wanted to make sure would stand out on a global stage.”

Wrestler teamed up with a Wellington-based software startup DreamFlux to let users interact with 3D objects that seamlessly blend in with the 360º video of iconic destinations around them.
