Qatar Airways opens interactive establishment in Doha

Posted 12 May 2017 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways celebrated the opening of KidzMondo, Doha's interactive edutainment establishment, on Wednesday during a ceremony held at the kid-sized city at Mall of Qatar.

The  partnership offers children an interactive and fun introduction to their preferred roles as pilots and cabin crew, and an understanding of the vocations available to them with the airline.

At KidzMondo Doha, Qatar Airways offers an insight into the complete travel experience for children who can take on roles as passengers, as well as airline staff, within the specially-adapted aircraft fueslage model. Children are able to explore the aeroplane, examine its different parts, and experience the daily tasks required of Qatar Airways staff. Children will also be able to play the role of cabin crew, learning about the safety and service standards required of all aviation professionals, and other children will live out the excitement of being a pilot, in a Qatar Airways' cockpit. There is a specially-adapted real Qatar Airways aircraft to set the stage for both passengers and staff on board. Children can also adopt the role of an airport agent, issuing boarding passes to visitors at a replica of Hamad International Airport’s check-in counter. Upon arrival at KidzMondo Doha, the youngsters’ journey begins with check-in, where they enter the city to become part of an amazing experience, becoming official ‘Kidizens’ of the city.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “It is our great pleasure to open these airline-inspired attractions to support and inspire our leaders of the future. We fully support KidzMondo’s Doha unique and innovative techniques to help engage and encourage children’s development, and these new activities are a great introduction to the many rewarding roles available across the aviation and travel industry.”
