The Dubai Mall now has an official Emirates Airline merchandise store, including a public flight simulator for the A380.
Visitors will be able to experience the flight deck of the A380 double-decker aircraft and feel the thrill of take-off from some of the busiest airports globally. They will also be able to land in various weather conditions. To add excitement to the exercise, visitors will obtain a score on navigation of the aircraft. This allows for competition between family and friends.
Emirates launched a similar project in London during the last year, to great reviews.
Sheikh Ahmed, the Chairman and Chief Executive of the airline group, said that this facility will be an excellent team-building activity for business groups and popular activity for visitors to the mall.
A few steps away from the simulator, the new store offers a complete range of merchandise. This could be anything from clothing to model aircraft. Shoppers will be able to choose from the entire range of football shirts linked to the global sponsorship of the airline.
