Kids' zone at Birmingham

Birmingham Airport has launched two interactive pre-flight play areas for children, designed to give youngsters jetting off on holiday a fun and engaging experience in the terminal.

The ‘Sky Zone’ airport play zones are designed for 3-10 year olds, and feature Sky Cadet ‘Zoom’, the airport’s mascot. The areas are free to use and are located at Gates 3 and 54, serving both departure lounges in the terminal.

The experience begins the moment children check-in and are given an interactive ‘flight pack’, the ultimate airport activity manual, bursting with fun games and puzzles designed to engage, amuse and inspire. As children make their way through the terminal to Sky Zone, floor stickers lead the way and feature clues to activities in the flight pack.

Each zone has been designed specially to prevent children getting ‘bored before they board’, with a selection of interactive games and activities including a uniquely-designed security spot-check game, fly pads, a reaction station, a musical mission pod, memory games and many more exciting interactive experiences.

In addition, the airport has launched a new website digital platform called Sky Zone Online for older children. This is an interactive digital zone featuring animated videos and audio clips where children can learn about the behind-the-scenes goings-on at the airport.
