Family edutainment brand KidZania has signed on Qatar Airways as its latest industry partner.
Qatar Airways’ facility will be the second KidZania City that the airline is partnering with, after KidZania Kuwait.
Upon arrival at the Palawan Kidz City at Palawan Beach where KidZania Singapore is housed, visitors will be welcomed with the sight of a life-size decommissioned Boeing 737 that measures over 25 metre long with a full wingspan of 28 metres.
Of all the 22 KidZania cities located worldwide, KidZania Singapore will be the only KidZania to showcase the full fuselage of an actual plane within its City.
On Targeting the tykes, Qatar Airways group chief executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said: “We are delighted to partner KidZania once again to ignite children’s imagination and bring their aviation dreams to life in an educational and entertaining way.”
“At Qatar Airways, we aspire to go places together with our passengers and through KidZania Singapore; we hope to introduce today’s budding aviation enthusiasts to the airline environment, helping them on their journeys into an aviation-related career when they grow up.”
Visitors entering KidZania Singapore will be greeted at the Qatar Airways branded airport terminal, complete with check-in desks and personnel dressed in Qatar Airways uniforms. The facility is also home to the Aviation Academy where kids can immerse themselves in the world of aviation and travel.
With the help of Zupervisors, aspiring pilots at KidZania Singapore can experience flying two of Qatar Airways’ flagship aircraft – the 787 Dreamliner and the A380 superjumbo aircraft – using state-of-the-art flight simulators. The flight simulation facility was also specially designed to demonstrate taking off and landing at Qatar Airways home base and hub, Hamad International Airport in Doha and Singapore Changi Airport.
