Virgin America Campaign with Frequent Travelers
Virgin America, an airline for domestic travel in the US, has announced an integrated multi-media campaign to highlight its tech and design-driven in-flight experience.
At the centerpiece of the campaign is a digital experience that brings the airline’s cabins to life with cinematic flair – through the eyes of a few of its most frequent travelers.
The campaign highlights Virgin America ‘Originals,’ frequent flyers known for shaking up the status quo in their own fields – including indie film director Kevin Smith, Pandora founder Tim Westergren, Animal and Son of a Gun chef Vinny Dotolo and independent artist/Facebook Creative Strategist Ji Lee.
