As you are busy planning your next holiday abroad with your family, Ethihad Airways is ready to keep the tiny tots and the young minds occupied on your next flight
Etihad Airways has introduced a new range of ‘Etihad Explorers’ children’s activity packs and a Flying Nanny Kit, to keep its younger guests occupied while onboard. Etihad Explorers – the airline’s new children’s brand will feature on activity packs and meal items; such customisation will definitely make the little guests feel extra special.
These new initiatives were launched at a colourful children’s tea party hosted by the airline at its state-of-the-art Innovation Training Academy in Abu Dhabi.
For 3 to 8 year olds
For inbound flights to Abu Dhabi there is a new collectable bag which contains an activity booklet, crayons, card games and a colour-in mask. The pack on flights from Abu Dhabi includes a unique suitcase board game which allows parents and children to play together, a foam lion character, colour-in postcards, crayons, and a handy waterproof travel wallet. So if you have chosen Etihad to fly out of Abu Dhabi as well your kid would be happy to have a different pack.
For 9 to 13 year olds
This age group demands a more mature activity pack hence the inclusion of Sudoku, mazes, lined notes and join-the-dot games. These packs also contain an Abu Dhabi themed pencil case, pencil, a dual-function bookmark and ruler, and a notepad.
Tech savvy tots can also enjoy a range of films, television programs, games, and child-friendly albums and CDs through the dedicated ‘Just 4 Kids’ section on the Etihad Airways E-BOX inflight entertainment system, all of which can be enjoyed on the touchscreen and/or handset.
Flying Nannies For Long Haul Flights
Etihad knows that every family flying with them is a special guest and hence for the the guests flying long haul every aircraft is staffed by a Flying Nanny. Trained by the UK’s world renowned Norland College, Flying Nannies were introduced by Etihad Airways in September 2013, and are onboard to provide an extra pair of hands and allow parents more personal time while they entertain the children.
The new Flying Nanny Kit promotes greater interaction between the nanny and child and contains an extensive range of fun items including Origami, games, pom-poms, flight certificates, tools for magic tricks and face-painting, and a ‘Flying Nanny stamp of approval’ which the nanny can use to reward children during their in-flight activities.
Family travel is time for fun and happiness and Etihad Airways just makes it easier for its guests.
