Qatar Airways announced today that they have PLENTY of jobs in their newest destination in Singapore. They are looking for pilots and cabin crews to fill their positions. Their only pre-requisite is that applicants have to be under 12 years old!!
Welcome Qatar Airways to KidZania Singapore! This first thing that you see when you head to KidZania Singapore is this view of the cockpit of the plane protruding from the Palawan Kidz City building!! It is sure to pump your kids up and prompt them to run towards it!
Inside the building, it is insane to see a full-sized Qatar Airways plane! No, this is NOT a terrorist attack or a movie set! It is a life-size decommissioned Boeing 737! Of all the 22 KidZania cities located worldwide, KidZania Singapore will be the only KidZania to showcase the full fuselage of an actual plane within its City.
This 25-metre long plane body with a full wingspan of 28-meters at the boarding gate of KidZania Singapore makes it THE most exciting one in the world! KidZania Singapore is the second KidZania City to partner with the multi-award winning airline, after KidZania Kuwait.
Watch this video to see how KidZania transported the full-sized fuselage of a Boeing 737 to Palawan Kidz City on Sentosa!
We had been to KidZania Dubai, so we know how it works. You have to produce your boarding pass at the check-in desks to enter the KidZania City.
Featuring a Qatar Airways branded airport terminal, complete with check-in desks and personnel dressed in Qatar Airways uniforms, the facility is home to the Aviation Academy where kids can immerse themselves in the world of aviation and travel.
At this official partnership launch, Qatar Airways attendants and KidZania mascots, Chica and Urbano were present to greet us with a warm reception.

They can experience earning their degrees, receiving a salary in the form of kidZos, the official currency of KidZania, and use it to pay for goods and services as well as some lessons in managing a bank card.
Designed to suit children aged 4 and above, KidZania Singapore complements school learning experiences through realistic role-play.
Partnering with the world-class airline, aspiring young pilots can experience flying two of Qatar Airways’ flagship aircraft – the 787 Dreamliner and the A380 superjumbo aircraft – using state-of-the-art flight simulators under the supervision of “Zupervisors”. The flight simulation facility was also specially designed to demonstrate taking off and landing at Qatar Airways home base and hub, Hamad International Airport in Doha and Singapore Changi Airport.
Kids can also role-play as Qatar Airways’ cabin crew. Parents can also join in the fun as they role-play as onboard passengers receiving five-star in-flight hospitality from their little ones.
We are counting down the days to the opening of KidZania Singapore in April this year!!
