Recognizing the fact that over 1,400,000 children fly on Air France annually, the airline has added many benefits to make flying more child-friendly for families and Solo Kids.
The airline has introduced two new game kits on long-haul flights for children ages 3 – 8 years. In addition there is an “Air France Kids” app that can be downloaded prior to departure that gives artists the ability to bring drawings to life in 3D.
There is also a meditation program for everyone to enjoy and help relax called “Mind”. There are 12 meditation programs through the inflight entertainment offerings – six for children over the age of 4 and 6 sessions for adults to introduce the benefits of concentration and serenity.
Magic is also on the docket. Tutorials are available on the inflight entertainment offerings and kits are available on board to teach these great tricks.
Air France also wants to track those precious teddy bears. The airline offers guests a “My Teddy tag” available at the check-in counter. If Teddy gets separated from its owner, the tag will have the owner’s information and they can be reunited quickly.
Comfort kits are available for infants on long-haul flights with a bib, spoons, diaper and more. In addition food options for children from 6 – 24 months including jars of savory food, milk and biscuits are available.
The airline isn’t forgetting about unaccompanied minors either. They have added a new dedicated connections area at Paris-Charles de Gaulle in terminal 2EL. The area is supervised by Air France agents and gives the children an exclusive environment.
Air France has definitely reached out to make sure families have options during their flights.
