The fuselage of a 25m-long decommissioned Qatar Airways Boeing 737 aircraft will be the first thing a visitor sees when he or she arrives at KidZania Singapore, slated to open in April this year. The life-size plane is part of an attraction at the upcoming family education and entertainment facility that will include an Aviation Academy offering flight simulators and role playing activities for children and adults to become Qatar Airways pilots, crew and passengers. The attraction was unveiled during a KidZania Singapore-Qatar Airways Industry Partners Announcement at Palawan Kidz City, Sentosa island today. Qatar Airways group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker said the company's five-year partnership with KidZania Singapore would expose young aviation enthusiasts to the airline environment and help them towards an aviation-related career when they grow up. "We chose to partner with KidZania Singapore because it is one of Qatar Airways' fundamental values to inspire the communities we serve. "Unlike other airlines which think flying as a transaction, travel inspires us. We think travel can be transformative. No matter what is the reason one travels, the trip changes you," said Akbar. KidZania Singapore is a subsidiary of Theme Attractions Resorts & Hotels Sdn Bhd. Theme Attractions Resorts & Hotels Sdn Bhd group managing director Tunku Datuk Ahmad Burhanuddin said KidZania Singapore will be the only one among the 22 KidZania centres in the world which has the life-size plane on its premises. "Visitors will experience entering an airport terminal with its check in counters and an Aviation Academy. "With the help of supervisors, aspiring pilots can experience flying two of Qatar Airways' flagship aircraft, 787 Dreamliner and A380 superjumbo jet in flight simulations designed to demonstrate taking off and landing at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar and Singapore," he said.
