Dubai carrier Emirates has unveiled details about its Expo 2020 pavilion ahead of the six-month long event which begins in October next year. Emirates has collaborated with aerospace and aviation partners to curate experiences heralding the future of travel, a statement said.

“The Emirates Expo 2020 pavilion offers a preview for the future of commercial aviation in 2071, exploring the outer boundaries of science and technology as we look forward to the next 50 years of air travel,” said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman and CEO of Emirates Airline and group. The interactive experiences will allow visitors to experiment with advanced airframes, propulsion systems, futuristic fuselages, and ultramodern composite materials.”

Few experiences in store for Emirates visitors include: Personalised experience – Each visitor creates his/her own personalised journey by collecting a ‘seed’ – a tactile sphere at the pavilion. As visitors interact with installations across the pavilion, these interactions are stored on the ‘seed’ for playback in the final experience. Science of flight – Visitors will interact with the narrative to show how a combination of low air pressure and wing shape creates lift, which alongside other elements, enables flight.
