Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Tuesday, 5 May 2009

Etihad Airways has landed in Dubai with a Boeing 777 flight simulator, allowing the public to take a break from shopping and test their flying skills at one of the citys busiest malls.

Complete with two Boeing training managers, the simulator will allow children and adults alike to take to the skies in Ibn Batutta Malls China Court between Tuesday 5 and Friday 8, May 2009.

Flights on the simulator are free of charge and open to budding pilots of all ages.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways chief commercial officer, said, Etihad Airways is always on the look out for budding new pilots and Ibn Batutta shopping mall just 45 minutes away from Abu Dhabi airport - is the perfect recruiting ground for us to give these young high fliers an early taste of what its like to fly with the worlds fastest growing airline.

Working with Nakheel which owns Ibn Batutta shopping mall gives us a great opportunity to raise further the profile of Etihad and the convenience for Dubai residents of flying from Abu Dhabi.
