KidZone opens at MMA2
Pineapple TV, in collaboration with Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), operators of the Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal Two (MMA2), recently unveiled a relaxation center for children at the airport tagged The KidZone.
According to Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited, the idea to have a world-class relaxation zone for kids at MMA2 became necessary because of the company’s desire to keep pace with modern trends in the global aviation and tourism industries.
The KidZone is a relaxed waiting area strategically situated at MMA2 on the airside of the terminal, after the departure security check. Families travelling through the airport facility with children under 16 years of age will find an exclusive seating area for themselves and their children – away from the hustle and bustle of other airport users.
The KidZone provides comfortable VIP seating while Pineapple TV, Africa’s first dedicated children and family television channel, which can be viewed on a large screen as they wait to board their flights, provides quality entertainment.
Pineapple TV, which is available on Startimes Channel 129, is dedicated to delivering safe, fun, quality, Afrocentric entertainment for children and the entire family.
BASL’s Head of Marketing, Tony Awe, said the concept is an important project that is capable of re-inventing Nigeria’s tourism potentials.
“The KidZone is a long-awaited initiative and we are proud to be partnering with Pineapple TV on this first of a kind project. We understand it can be stressful for families travelling through airports. The KidZone is our way of ensuring that families have a more stress-free experience while travelling through MMA2. With Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited and Pineapple TV, the family comes first.”
Head of Corporate Affairs for Pineapple Productions and Media Limited, Mrs. Yetunde Falade, said, “The KidZone at MMA2 has never been seen in any Airport in Nigeria. We are putting the comfort of travelling children and their families into consideration by creating a pleasurable travel experience for them, at no additional cost.”
She added that her company is poised to launch other ‘Off Television’ initiatives soon.
Passengers with kids, who have already enjoyed the KidZone experience, have agreed it makes travelling far more stress free, and say they will definitely travel through MMA2 because of this facility again.
