After a year of limited travel, many families are eager to start exploring once again. Leading the process is a focus on safer travel options. In response, Access Jet Group is pleased to welcome family charter fliers for a clean, customized travel experience.
As you’re planning the trip of a lifetime, a little preparation and planning can go a long way to ensure everyone in your family is accommodated. Adults and children often have different needs when flying, so we’re sharing our expert tips on family flight travel so everyone will be ready for takeoff.
1. Prepare Your Young Travelers
Are your little ones excited to soar above the clouds? Or are they nervous about being miles above the land? We suggest showing them videos or photos of what it looks like inside an aircraft and what takeoff and landing are like so they know what to expect. Talk about what they can and can’t do on the flight. Let them bring a special stuffed friend that will be their seat buddy. Getting them involved in the experience makes it more fun for everyone.
2. Bring Snacks
Private jets and gourmet food go hand in hand. But sometimes, kids would rather eat their favorite, familiar snacks. Feel free to pack a stash of their comfort foods to make their flight more enjoyable.
3. Invest in a Variety of Activities
One of the advantages of a private flight is that kids aren’t always confined to a single seat. This gives you more options when it comes to planning onboard activities. Try to stick with items that don’t have small pieces that could get lost. Coloring books, handheld games, and books are always favorite choices.
4. Request WiFi
Tablets, laptops, and other electronic devices can be huge parent helpers during flights. WiFi is available by default on most aircraft, but not all of the aircraft in our network are equipped. We recommend choosing an aircraft with WiFi if you have children or teens to maximize their in-flight entertainment.
5. Consider Your Ideal Setup
Do you have a baby that will rest better in a carrier? Would having a stroller on board make your life easier? Private flights are more accommodating than their commercial counterparts. Talk to our team if you plan on bringing any baby gear or special items like diaper bags so we can properly accommodate you.
