Emirates opens bookings for visits to its pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai

Dubai carrier Emirates said on Wednesday that it had opened bookings for visitors to choose their preferred date and time slots in advance to visit its pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. Located in the Opportunity District, and in close proximity to the Al Wasl Dome, the four-storey Emirates pavilion is open daily from 10am-10pm. It will feature interactive multi-sensory interactions and will offer a preview of the future of commercial aviation, and the role of science and technology in the next half century of air travel. Construction on the pavilion began in March 2019 and was completed in June 2021, several weeks ahead of the Expo’s official opening on October 1. The Emirates Pavilion reportedly followed several sustainability principles, including the use of non-hazardous, regional, reusable and recyclable materials in its overall structure, besides implanting design solutions to reduce energy and water consumption. Its façade is modelled around an aircraft’s wings taking flight, with 24 aluminium cladded fins that curve around two sides of the building structure. Its exterior lighting includes an 800 metre LED system. The interior’s is lit up with ample natural light, serves as a backdrop for the immersive experiences, and can welcome 120 people an hour.
