Sky Zone – Pre Flight Play
Sky Zone the new augmented reality experience open and available to all families is a free interactive play area that will help keep your kids entertained before you fly. Open at all times and aimed at all ages, there are games for the youngest of our passengers through to ages 13 and upwards. The Sky Zone area in the departure lounge is located by Gate 55. The area is free to use but please make sure you supervise your children at all times. There is a Costa Coffee and WH Smiths conveniently located next to the Sky Zone.
Zoom takes children on a virtual and interactive adventure from check-in keeping them entertained and educated up until boarding their flight. Children can join Zoom and the Sky Cadets on their journey from their own home by becoming a Sky cadet. Simply download the free interactive app Zappar available on iPhone and Android App stores. Scan the bar-codes around the Airport and Zap with Zoom.
For the slightly older kids, we've launched skyzoneonline.co.uk, our digital platform full of interesting and exciting content waiting to be unlocked. It allows you to explore our airport, featuring animated videos and audio files explaining the inner workings of Birmingham Airport. Kids can watch and listen before they arrive at the airport, or whilst they're waiting for their flight in the departure lounge.
