Birmingham Airport Opens New Kids’ Play Zones

Two new kids’ play zones have been opened at Birmingham Airport.

Now, young travellers can burn off some excitable energy before their flight in these free to use fun play areas.

Called Sky Zones there is a zone for small passengers, aged 3-10, at gates 3 and 54.
Older children can enjoy the new Sky Zone Online digital service that includes learning about interesting behind the scenes airport goings on, animated videos etc. all accessible via the airport’s website.

What’s more, when children check in they will each receive a bumper fun pack crammed with puzzles and quizzes, clues of which can be found on floor stickers leading to each of the Sky Zones.

Each Sky Zone includes a musical mission pod, security spot check game, reaction station, fly pads, memory games and other such interactive experiences.

Speaking about the new areas, Birmingham Airport’s Chief Operating Officer, David Winstanley, said, “For many people their holiday starts the moment they step into the airport. We want both adults and children to find our facilities world class and their experience here memorable and positive. The redesigned Sky Zone gives us the opportunity to offer children a fun and exciting play area with games and activities centred on aviation to educate our young passengers about the airport.”
