Emirates has demonstrated its priority attention to Nigerian children by hosting a dedicated Children’s Day and exclusive screening of a blockbuster movie, ‘Aladdin.’
The children were treated to a full day of entertainment and inspiration at the spectacular Children’s Day event in Maryland Mall, Lagos yesterday.
The special Children’s Day package included movie screening, special cake cutting, positive interactions, display of a model aircraft, visualization of the Emirates flying experience and one on one with the Emirates Regional Manager West Africa, Afzal Parambil.
Some of the children dressed in specially made Emirates pilot and cabin crew uniforms expressed their aspirations to not only pursue aviation careers but to also fly actual Emirates planes someday. The children felt encouraged to dream and work towards those dreams.
The Emirates award-winning ‘ice’ offers a wide variety of children's programming including the very best movies and television from Disney, Cartoon Network, CBeebies and Nickelodeon channels plus much more.
For young music fans, Emirates offers a great selection with hundreds of channels of music available. Young travellers on Emirates also receive specially designed colorful headphones for a better fit and improved sound quality.
Emirates has developed its own set of toys for children, which includes, Fly With Me Cuddle Buddy, a soft comfort blanket for infants, Fly With Me Animal Tin Cases with magnets and activity sheets for toddlers, and Fly With Me Lonely Planet Kids case for older children featuring a fold-out board game, spinner, ID holder, lanyard, gadget stand and pen.
Other attractions for children and infants on Emirates include: priority boardings, special fares for those aged two to eleven years of age, and 10kg free baggage allowance for infants not occupying a seat.
Emirates flies 14 times a week from Lagos to Dubai (2 flights per day), and 4 times a week from Abuja to Dubai.
