DIAL has dedicated a “Child Play Area” at the Security Hold Area (SHA) of Terminal 1A of Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA).
IGIA is perhaps the first Airport in India to open a Child Play Area, which is free of cost.
The Child Play Area has been professionally designed with safe climbing structures, swings, balls, and other play equipment. Children can use simple, movable gear to play a variety of games. Airport related themes are displayed in the flooring & carpets. The theme of Child Play Area will keep changing from time to time to keep the interest of children alive.
As per DIAL, the Child Play Area is being appreciated by passengers traveling with small children, and positive feedback has been received.
One of the passengers of Air India, Ms. Neharika Singh, was pleasantly surprised to see the Child Play Area open at the terminal . “The play area is providing exciting and safe play equipment for kids. I have twins. My little daughter was delighted to see the soft toys at the child care lounge and my little son was delighted to see the play equipment here”, said Ms. Singh.
Earlier, DIAL had set up child care lounges at the Check-in areas of terminals 1A and IB. Child friendly equipment, such as a cupboard full of soft toys, baby cots, highchairs and sofas have been placed at the lounges. In addition nappy changing counters have been provided with the application of joyful, coloured cartoon characters in the surroundings.
