Qantas and Hamilton Island have today announced they will release a 3D Virtual Reality (VR) experience of the Great Barrier Reef and Hamilton Island, giving customers a unique experience of one of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations.
Qantas has partnered with Samsung and Rapid VR to produce a new VR film which will allow Qantas customers the opportunity to experience a 360 degree experience of the Great Barrier Reef and Hamilton Island. The film will be available in select Qantas international lounges and flights from 27 June 2015.
Qantas has also announced it will increase the number of flights between Hamilton Island and Brisbane, further strengthening its commitment to drive tourism to the Whitsunday region.
From 31 August, QantasLink will add two return flights per week (Tuesday and Friday) on its 74-seat Q400 aircraft and upgrade its Monday flight to a 125-seat Boeing 717 jet aircraft, adding just under 400 seats a week between Brisbane and Hamilton Island.
