Merlin works magic for Emirates Airline

Have your say

Emirates Airline has turned to Barnsley-based Merlin Software to help it run its new Aviation Experience venue in London.

The Experience offers visitors the chance to man the flight deck of the most technologically advanced aeroplanes in the world.

They can also see a life- sized replica of a jet engine made entirely in LEGO and follow the path a suitcase takes as it passes through airport baggage control in Dubai.

Merlin’s software is helping Emirates to run on-site facilities for visitor management, as well as the box office, shop and café.

Owen Gleadall, managing director of the Barnsley firm, said: “This is a unique experience and we are delighted that Merlin has been chosen to provide visitor services for it.

“To complement the attraction we have also installed the very latest terminals, colour-coded to match Emirates Airlines’ corporate identity.

“The whole effect is superb and we are sure that the Aviation Experience will become a must for London’s sightseers.”
