Qatar Airways’ friendly Oryx Kids Club mascots will be inspiring young travellers to get creative in planning their next journey, with a visit to an exciting digital drawing booth at the Mall of Qatar from 26-29 September 2018.

Orry and Orah the oryx and their three furry friends – Kamil the camel, Faaiz the falcon and Farah the desert fox –  will be on hand from 4pm - 9pm on 26 and 27 September, and from 2pm - 9pm on 28 and 29 September to help children demonstrate their creativity towards travelling by participating in a digital drawing competition. The fun-filled event aims to encourage youngsters aged 7-12 years to develop a sense of familiarity when they travel to their favourite destination with Qatar Airways. The winners of the drawing competition will be awarded with a minimum of two Economy Class return tickets to any Qatar Airways destination on its global route network of more than 150 destinations.

The airline’s booth at the Mall of Qatar will provide children with the opportunity to explore their creative side and discover the excitement of travel with Qatar Airways. Children can also take home a souvenir photo of themselves with their favourite Oryx Kids Club mascot, as well as with a certificate of participation. Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Mr. Ehab Amin, said: “Qatar Airways is thrilled to engage with young travellers in Qatar and offer them a taste of excitement when travelling with our family-friendly airline. We continually strive to engage with young children, who are the leaders of the future, and encourage them to follow their dreams and travel the world, exploring all the exciting destinations and locations the world has to offer.

“This event is also a wonderful opportunity for children to interact with our exciting new mascots, and highlight our interest in ensuring that travel is a fun and educational experience for young passengers. Orry, Orah and their three furry friends will help make every flight even more enjoyable for families.” Launched in March 2018 at KidzMondo, the Oryx Kids Club characters are designed to inspire and excite children when they fly. Children travelling on the award-winning airline’s short, medium, long and ultra long-haul routes are now able to enjoy specially designed plush toys, activity packs, and special meal boxes featuring their favourite super heroes from the Oryx Kids Club during their flight.
