Low Cost Carrier Looks After Little Travellers

More than 750,000 families are set to travel with easyJet this summer and to make young travellers journeys to and from Belfast even more exciting the airline is this month launching its 'Little Traveller's Log Book'.

The 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.

Additionally, to make the journey even more enjoyable the airline has also recently launched its summer Flybraries (Flying Libraries). The easyJet Book Club will see seven thousand copies of children’s classic books made available in passenger seat-pockets across its entire UK fleet. Campaign ambassador and leading children’s author Dame Jacqueline Wilson launched the initiative and selected children’s classic books for kids to enjoy in-flight including; Peter Pan, Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland, The Railway Childrenand The Wizard of Oz.

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 from Belfast 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.”

While 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.

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.

The airline'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.

The airline also caters for 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 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.
