As of today, we only have 24 more sleeps until we fly home to Canada and I couldn’t be more excited. I have planned a full itinerary of what we will be doing with friends and family, but before we leave, I have booked my daughter into the Air Transat “Kids Club”, where she will enjoy some perks on the plane to keep her busy and me stress free!
As someone who hates to fly, this is going to help calm my nerves and take away some of the boredom that can come for a 7 year old who can’t sit still and is super excited to be travelling and going away on holiday. I think its a fantastic idea to have something like this, and I only wish that all airlines followed suit because it really can make a difference especially when going long haul. When we travelled with Air Transat in December , it was last minute and I didn’t have a chance to add the kids to the club but the staff on board were really lovely and made sure that my two had an activity pack to keep them occupied, supplied them with blankets and brought them some snacks and turned a blind eye when the 2 yr old felt that he wanted to commandere the aisle!
So what does a junior traveller receive in the Air Transat Kids Club? Some of the perks includes and covers children from the ages of 2 – 11, celebrates birthdays on board, gives the opportunity for priority boarding which is fab because its less waiting around, I like to get onboard, settled and comfortable. I also like that they run an annual competition for a free trip to a Canadian destination which would be really cool to win because its for a family of 4, which we are! They also give children an activity pack, tags for luggage so that it is easily identified when picking up on the other end, coupsons for snacks on board and other exclusive privillages.
Whilst she is looked after, I also have the opportunity to download the in flight cineplus app which allows me to watch different programmes from my phone or tablet without having to strain to watch the screens which are available for all travellers. It provides me with loads of differen’t programmes of various genres as well as a selection of music and tv shows which is sure to distract me and calm my flying nerves. I can certainly see why the airline has won a Family Friendly award for the second year running as it caters to all travellers fromt he moment you book a flight with them or one of their agents, we used Canadian Affair again because its who we have always booked with due to their low prices and ease of bookings.
Have you used Canadian Affair and travelled with Air Transat? I thoroughly recommend using them for ease, value and comfort!
