Air travelling with inquisitive kids can be a challenging task. Many parents find it difficult to travel along with kids as they worry about the child’s safety. The following tips will help you in the planning of a safe, pleasurable air travel along with your kids, and help you to enjoy a great vacation.
Last minute tips for air travelling with kids
1) Reserve a seat for your kids: Inform your travelling agent about the kids who will accompany you on the air travel. Confirm proper seating arrangement for kids. You may prefer a seat closer to the bathroom to make it easy for you. If your toddler is below 2 years of age, he or she may travel on your lap, yet, arranging for a car seat is approved by airlines and will be the safest option.
2) Special packing for kids while air travelling: it is necessary to consider the needs of kids during the air travel, while packing for it. Store enough snacks for kids to nibble on. Keep an extra pair of cloths for the kids and yourself to make up for any spills, spits or vomiting. Keep some toys of the kids choice to keep them occupied. If your kids are interested in music, let them carry a portable DVD or mp3/4 player.
3) Start for the journey before time, on the day of your journey so that you may attain sufficient time to manage the proceedings at airport without worrying about your kids or being late. Allow your kids to wear comfortable clothes that suit the weather. Reach the airport before the scheduled departure time to avoid any confusion.
4) After boarding an aircraft, listen to the briefing offered by the flight attendants carefully. Follow all the instruction offered for airline safety, for emergency situations. If you are doubtful about something, you should ask the attendants without any hesitation. Keep the car seats of your kids away from the aisle; the crowd movement may hurt them. Children may express bad moods as they may get restless and that will disturb other passengers. Ignore the reactions of the irritated passengers and try to sweet-talk and calm the kids.
Travelling with kids can be a bit of challenge but with a proper planned management, you can make you journey with the kids a fun one.
