Netherlands-based airline KLM is known for being both innovative and a bit quirky, from creating its own pair of sneakers to using facial recognition to speed along passenger check-ins. Now the company is using VR to give children in the hospital a chance to see the world without ever leaving the ground.

Working with Wonju Severance Christian Hospital in Seoul, South Korea, KLM prepared a special trip for a group of children currently receiving treatment there. Using a 360 VR viewer, the children were given up-close views of world-famous attractions, including Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower, as well as the company’s home city of Amsterdam.
