AP9 Simple Escapes, IK9 Simple Escapes Offers Tips For Flying With Children

AP9 Simple Escapes, IK9 Simple Escapes, a travel and entertainment membership discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, says seeing the world through the eyes of a child can be a rewarding experience. But when your plans call for air travel, it’s important to remember that children need a little extra attention and reassurance to make their flight — and yours — a pleasurable one.

AP9 SimpleEscapes, IK9 Simple Escapes reports that the hustle and bustle of a large airport can be overwhelming for a young person. A week before your flight, tell your child what to expect, including crowds, the security process, what the aircraft will look like, and some of the people you will encounter (flight attendants, pilots, etc.). Emphasize the positive aspects of flying and the fun you will have when you reach your destination.


AP9 Simple Escapes, IK9 Simple Escapes has a few more suggestions to help you prepare your child for an upcoming flight:


Pack a bag. Have your youngster pack his or her own carry-on bag, including healthy snacks, water, activity books, small toys and a stuffed animal. This will help your child feel more independent. And be sure he or she is wearing loose, comfortable clothes and sneakers.

Arrive early. In general, getting to the airport early (90 minutes before departure for domestic flights, two hours early for international) is a good idea, but it’s even more vital when traveling with a child. This gives you time to deal with traffic and any last-minute problems, without the stress of dashing to your gate.

Take a hike. Once you’ve checked in, you can watch baggage loaders, take-offs and other activities on the tarmac. If you have a long flight ahead of you, take a walk around the terminal so your child won’t feel antsy on board.

Enjoy the ride. While you’re in the air, engage your child in the experience. If possible, point out landmarks on the ground after take-off. Then, follow your progress with maps (on video screens or in the airline magazine), and listen for announcements from the captain.

Watch a movie. If you’re traveling with a laptop computer, bring along a favorite CD or DVD, along with a Y-adaptor so you can both listen on headphones.
