Yes parents, it’s still the summer holidays. Thankfully, easyJet are trying to make things a little easier for you with the introduction of the Little Travellers Log Book for kids

With easyJet estimating that over 750,000 are flying with them over the summer and in an effort to appease a few “are we there yets”, the airline is trying out this log book idea.
According to the airline the 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.
The airline is inviting younger passengers to hand in their Little Traveller’s Log Book’ to the cabin crew for signing by the captain. On some flights, they may even be invited to the cockpit once they’ve landed at their destination.
Heck – Do you have to be a little traveller to have one? I know of larger and older travellers (your resident #avgeek included) who wouldn’t mind this too…
In addition to this, the airline will be pushing its “Flybaries” concept (or flying libraries). Several thousand children’s classic books will be loaded across the UK-based easyJet fleet for children to enjoy in-flight. 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 Children and The Wizard of Oz.
Captain Brian Tyrell, Head of Flight Operations at easyJet states:
“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.”
The summer holidays can be a trying time to fly, and it’s good to see easyJet trying to ease the way. The airline has adopted family-friendly policies, such as keeping buggies to the gate, early boarding for those with young children, supporting breastfeeding aboard planes – as well as healthy snacks and activtiy kits.
There’s also a special landing page for those travelling with children at www.easyjet.com/en/help/preparing-to-fly/flying-with-children
Passenger experience (as the last few posts show) is extremely important for all passengers – not just those in the front of the plane, down the back, but for all ages too. And it doesn’t just apply to the seat – rather it applies to the whole experience aboard a plane.
And anything to make the summer travels easier has to be welcomed.
