Qatar Airways recently celebrated the opening of KidzMondo Doha’s interactive edutainment establishment, during a special ceremony held at the kid-sized city at the Mall of Qatar. The inspiring partnership offers children a dynamic and fun introduction to their preferred roles as pilots and cabin crew, for an understanding of the exciting vocations available within the world-class airline, at Qatar’s one-of-a-kind edutainment city.
Under the patronage of His Excellency Jassim bin Saif Al Sulaiti, Minister of Transport and Communications, the opening ceremony was hosted by Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker and Ali Kazma, Chairman of Kidz Holding and Founder of the KidzMondo concept.
Qatar Airways will offer an insight into the complete travel experience for children to take on roles as passengers, as well as airline staff, within the specially-adapted real aircraft model at KidzMondo Doha. Children will be able to explore the plane, 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, inside a Qatar Airways cockpit. There will be 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 they fully support KidzMondo Doha’s unique and innovative techniques to help engage and encourage children’s development. He added that these new activities are a great introduction to the many rewarding roles available across the aviation and travel industry.
If children are more interested in staying up in the clouds and becoming one of Qatar Airways cabin crew, kids can role-play and learn about the safety and comfort of their customers on board. Parents will be able to join in the fun too as they participate as passengers receiving the inflight hospitality from their young ones.
The indoor theme park will offer children aged between two and fourteen realistic role-playing activities, which uncover childrens’ innate creativity, through fun-learning within the boundaries of the kid-sized city. The entertainment park, complete with its own economy and currency, has been designed to holistically educate children by developing their cognitive, emotional, psychomotor and social abilities through exciting activities of the theme park’s different establishments.
Chairman of Kidz Holding and Founder of the KidzMondo concept, Ali Kazma said he was honoured to partner with Qatar Airways.
Qatar Airways aircraft simulation at the entrance will mark the beginning of every kid’s journey at KidzMondo and this will continue to tap into airline’s potential beyond its tourism and hospitality supremacy, in activating its role as a trusted partner in transforming the educational landscape in Qatar.’
KidzMondo Doha provides children with a relevant and tangible learning experience, indicating the growing need across the world for unique experiences aimed at children and youth that combine entertainment and education. Considering the range of opportunities children can explore, Kidizens can engage in unique activities in a dynamic and safe environment, built as a replica of the real world, powered by its own currency, constitution, economy and functioning infrastructure. This distinctive experience is further augmented with the special curricula that has been exclusively designed to educate children and foster their development in a fun way.
