More than 700,000 families are set to travel with easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, this summer and to make young travellers journeys even more exciting the airline has launched its ‘Little Traveller’s Log Book’
easyJet’s Little Traveller’s Log Book contains fun flying facts, information about pioneering aviators and a full flight log including flight number, route, total miles and space for the Captain’s signature to keep little ones entertained inflight.
Young passengers will be invited to give their Little Traveller’s Log Book’ to the cabin crew for signing by the captain or on some flights may even be invited to take it into the cockpit once they have landed in their destination.
It’s available for children of all ages and is available via the cabin crew on flights departing from London Gatwick or London Luton.
Captain Brian Tyrell, Head of Flight Operations at easyJet said:
“Each year over two million families travel with easyJet and we understand that sometimes keeping kids entertained at 30,000 feet can seem daunting which is why we want to make travelling with children as easy as possible.
“We have a number of family-friendly initiatives in place including allowing families to bring essential items of luggage free of charge such as travel seats or buggies. Our pilots and crew also love meeting our little travellers and making their flying experience with us as fun and exciting as possible.
“We hope that our young travellers will enjoy keeping a record of their travel adventures with us in their Little Traveller’s Log Book and that it provides excitement and fun for those travelling onboard with us this summer.”
Whilst easyJet aims to make travel easy for all of its passengers, the airline has some specific things in place for families. These can be found on easyJet’s website at: www.easyjet.com/en/help/preparing-to-fly/flying-with-children
Families can carry two extra pieces of luggage free of charge meaning parents don’t need to worry about travel seats or buggies. Parents can also keep their buggy with them right up until the gate and families with young children can also board the aircraft early.
easyJet’s aircraft are family-friendly with folding down changing tables onboard. The airline also strongly supports breastfeeding and ensures all mothers feel comfortable to breastfeed on the aircraft at any time.
We also cater for our younger travellers’ tastes with fun-filled kids’ snack packs which not only contain a selection of healthy kids snacks such as fruit, raisins and Go Bananas Biscuits but also keep kids happy with an Ice Age activity box including games, colouring pictures and a set of colouring pencils. Lily and Gulliver, easyJet’s much loved teddy bears, are also available to buy on every flight – over 20,000 are sold onboard every year.
