The first Gaming Point concession from Travel Point Group will arrive at Perth Airport in Western Australia in Q2.

Travel Point Group has inked an agreement with Perth Airport to roll out the first Gaming Point concession at an airport.

As revealed this month, Travel Point Group is the newly formed joint venture that pairs Gaming Point – the commercial arm of UK-headquartered airport services provider Luggage-Point – and DF&TR store design and build specialist Concourse.

Scheduled to open in May, the Gaming Point unit will be situated at the airport’s International Terminal 1, prior to customs and security screening.

This makes it accessible to all domestic and international arriving or departing passengers in the T1/T2 airport precinct, as well as the general public.

‘Increased entertainment options’

The Gaming Point concession features one virtual reality (VR) escape room, which can accommodate up to five players per 30-45 minute session.

Travellers can choose from eight separate games, with a Game Master –appointed by the Gaming Point team – assisting the playing groups.

In addition, Gaming Point will house a range of individual high-speed internet gaming stations linked to the Steam network, allowing gaming enthusiasts to continue their own gaming via individual accounts.

The Gaming Point concept features a VR escape room that can accommodate up to five players per session, with each session lasting 30-45 minutes.

Solo gaming options for newcomers are also available via the gaming lounge.

Rebecca Cook, Acting Chief Commercial Officer, Perth Airport said: “We are excited to offer our passengers increased entertainment options and look forward to partnering with Point Group as they deliver this new offer.”

Graeme Stewart, Travel Point Group Director, added: “Point Group is in advanced discussions with many major airports around the globe, to deliver exciting  new experiential offers using virtual reality and high-speed gaming facilities at airports and are so pleased to have finalised the agreement with Perth Airport.”
