Air France Introduces New Products for Young Travellers
With the winter holidays approaching, Air France is enhancing the onboard experience of young travellers with the introduction of new products for young globetrotters.
Turning the trip into a world of make-believe
In all cabins on Air France long-haul flights, children now receive a new fun activity kit from cabin crew to keep them amused with imaginative role-play games during their trip and for use at home.
Inside, they will find a little dog-shaped figurine with a suitcase, a plane in the airline’s colours, a runway jigsaw puzzle, an activity book and coloured pencils.
The kit unfolds to reveal a fun French bakery decor and the figurine wears a sailor top, two emblematic nods to France.
This new kit is distributed to all young travellers during the in-flight meal service. The “kids” menu is exclusively made up of organic products on flights departing from Paris and is automatically offered to kids aged 2 to 6.
Beyond the age of 6, the child’s parents can reserve the kid’s menu at no charge up to 24 hours before departure.
As part of an eco-friendly approach, this kit is free of plastic. Each item is made of FSC wood (obtained from sustainably managed forests) or recycled paper and cardboard.
Optimum well-being for infants
Air France also offers new products for families travelling with infants under the age of 2. In all cabins on long-haul flights, customers receive an adorable kraft paper kit containing a cuddly toy dog, made of reusable and recyclable soft materials.
In the La Première, Business and Premium Economy cabins, this kit also comes with a cute pouch in the Air France colours and certified organic Castéra thermal water made in France.
Air France makes holiday travel fun
Throughout the trip, Air France also offers other fun activities for its young travellers. Alongside special meals and fun activity kits, little globetrotters can also enjoy a dedicated selection of entertainment programmes including music, cartoons and an introduction to meditation.
A selection of 16 children’s magazines can also be downloaded from the Air France Play app.
Air France also welcomes children aged 4 to 17 travelling alone on board its flights. With the "Kids Solo" service, Air France staff accompany them and ensure their safety. Thanks to the Air France app, parents can follow each stage of their trip, from departure at the airport to arrival at their destination.
With nearly 2 million children travelling on its flights every year, Air France has always been dedicated to the well-being of families travelling with children.
