Today, an unveiling ceremony was held to announce the partnership between Kidzania Singapore and its official airline partner – Qatar Airways. We were welcomed by two of the mascots of Kidzania, Urbano and Chika.
And the pretty stewardesses from Qatar Airways.
The airplane that was going to be unveiled was a life-size decommissioned Boeing 737 that measures 25 metres long. Yup, that’s a real airplane hanging over your heads at the foyer of Palawan Kidz City.
It has a full wingspan of 28 metres, stretching across the ceiling of the foyer!
There are 22 Kidzania cities located worldwide, but Kidzania Singapore will be the only Kidzania to showcase the full fuselage of an actual plane within the city!
When you visit Kidzania Singapore come April, you will be greeted at the Qatar Airways branded airport terminal, complete with check-in desks and personnel dressed in Qatar Airways uniforms.
This facility will be home to the Aviation Academy, where kids can immerse themselves in the world of aviation and travel through flight simulation and role-play.
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 will be specially designed to demonstrate taking off and landing at Hamad International Airport in Doha and Singapore Changi Airport.
Kids can also role-play as Qatar Airways’ cabin crew, learning about safety procedures on board a flight, and
parents can role-play as on-board passengers! (Update 12/4/2016: Parents are no longer allowed to enter the Aviation Academy.)
Without further ado, let’s unveil the Qatar Airways Boeing 737!
Tunku Dato’ Ahmad Burhanuddin, Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Themed Attractions Resorts & Hotels, and His Excellency, Mr Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, pushed a throttle to unveil the aircraft.
So the next time you pass by Palawan Kidz City, keep a lookout for the plane!
And if you are wondering how on earth they transported a plane to Palawan Kidz City, here is the official video for you. Not sure about you, but I can’t wait for Kidzania Singapore to open in April!
