Budapest Airport, the operator of the Hungarian capital's Ferenc Liszt International Airport, opened a 120-square-meter airport playground at Minipolisz, on Király Street in downtown Budapest. From the last day of May, children will be able to try themselves as airport workers at the mini-city, where the airport environment will be complemented by a duty free shop, completing the air travel experience.
Minipolisz is a magical city for children, in the heart of Budapest, the statement says. In this mini-world, everyday life is turned upside down for a few hours, and any child can become a shop assistant, cashier, postman, crane operator, banker, florist, car mechanic and now even an airport worker.
On the opening day, Budapest Airport, Heinemann Duty Free Budapest and Minipolisz wanted to provide an unforgettable airport experience to children and adults alike, so the opening was attended by kindergarten and school groups from the districts and municipalities around the airport, as well as residents of the Gyöngyvirág Children’s Home in Budapest District XVIII.
For Budapest Airport, it is of utmost importance to be present in people’s lives and to keep them informed about the airport’s rules and regulations, procedures, operations and activities. One of the most important pillars of the company’s CSR strategy is education, which aims to raise awareness and inform society about issues affecting the airport. The stand at Minipolisz is a great opportunity for children to get to know the airport operator from an early age and to learn the rules of travel in a playful way, the statement points out.
At the stations of the mini airport, children aged 5-10 can learn about different airport processes and jobs in an interactive, playful way. The three main airport stations - check-in, security screening, waiting and boarding gate - are complemented by a mini duty free shop, courtesy of Heinemann Duty Free Budapest, which completes the airport experience for children.
“We think it is important that future generations learn about airport operations and air travel from an early age, in a playful way. The stand at Minipolisz provides an excellent opportunity for children to enjoy coming to the airport as passengers, or even as employees, when they grow up. We want all children and their accompanying parents and teachers to experience the magical world of the airport. We are delighted that, thanks to Heinemann Duty Free Budapest, we can offer a mini duty free shop and a complete airport experience for visitors to Minipolisz,” Katalin Valentínyi, Director of Corporate Communications and Government Relations for Budapest Airport, said.
