KidZania is an Emirates-sponsored initiative that introduces children to the thrills of an aviation-related career in a real-life airline environment experience at the Dubai Mall.
The award-winning children’s edutainment concept features an interactive mini-city with life-sized streets, buildings, and shops scaled to a smaller, child-friendly size.
KidZania allows children to dress up and role play by performing realistic tasks in a fun and meaningful way. Through the partnership with Emirates, KidZania will offer children the opportunity to enact their dream roles as pilots and cabin crew.
A highlight of KidZania is the fuselage of an actual aircraft fitted out with realistic flight simulators. Emirates check-in desks are also set up as the main entrance point to KidZania, allowing children to “check-in,” get boarding passes, go through the makeshift x-ray machines, and enter the new city—KidZania.
All designs as well as various activities re-create the real-life experience of working for Emirates. For example, children can work as pilots and fly from Dubai to KidZania in flight simulators. Emirates also provides wardrobes and training programs that are in line with its actual work standards, allowing the airline to showcase its world-leading products and services.
