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.

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.
