New kids activity kit on board Air France’s flights


1 min read

From April 2019, Air France will be offering a new model of its “Kids” activity kit on board its long-haul flights. This new brightly-coloured kit is offered by the crew to all children between the ages of 5 and 11. It contains all kinds of surprises for kids to enjoy and take home after their trip:

  • a postcard to colour in;
  • a ruler;
  • an activity booklet;
  • a key ring;
  • 5 coloured pencils;
  • a “kumihimo”, a circular braiding kit ideal for performing magic tricks.

This practical kit can also be transformed into a small cushion once inflated to accompany children all summer long!

Keep kids busy before going on holiday with Questions in the Sky

Children are particularly curious when they travel. To answer their many questions, Air France has created a mini website called questionsinthesky.com. Available at all times, it provides the answers to close to 100 questions that any curious young traveller may have. Engineers, ramp agents, the Chairman, cabin crew, pilots, etc., Air France staff have taken up the challenge and are revealing the secrets of their profession to our young globetrotters.

Travelling is child’s play

Dedicated to the well-being of families travelling on its flights, Air France has always been committed to providing a fun experience for children. To make this experience unique, the company ensures that the 1,400,000 young passengers it carries every year and their parents receive special attention, from the time they book their flight to the time they return home.

A “Kids” offer dedicated to younger travellers includes children’s games kits on board, specific entertainment programmes and gourmet menus on long-haul flights. For children travelling alone, the “Kids Solo” offer is also there to accompany children and their parents.
