The global aviation industry is presently witnessing a new trend. Many international airlines are making extensive efforts to upgrade their services and attract more customers to fly with them. Qatar Airways has always tried to remain ahead in the game. The airline has once again raised the bar with the recent launch of the new Mr. Potato Head amenity kit to attract kids and their parents in a big way.
Qatar Airways has taken into account the needs and desires of kids of all ages. Apart from smaller kids, the airline is also offering Monopoly themed amenity kits for older kids as well. The parents traveling with infants would get special amenity kits exclusively designed for infants. The special infant kit would be prominently featuring a bottle, baby food, diapers, and also few soft toys. But these amenity kits are not the only to be offered. We may just call it to be the tip of kid-friendly iceberg. There’s much more on offer by the airline.
Parents traveling with infants or kids have always considered flying on Qatar Airways as a dream come true. Like many international airlines, the Doha-based carrier has been offering a baby bassinet to parents flying with infants. According to the airline, the baby bassinet has been designed to support a maximum weight of 30.8 pounds. Ask any parent flying with a chest-clinging sweaty “lap child” about their experience of traveling on a long-haul flight operated by Qatar Airways, and pat comes the reply: “It’s just incredible and a dream come true!”
A spokesperson of Qatar Airways said that the airline has always wanted to keep its youngest travelers fully entertained during the course of flight. The state-of-the-art entertainment devices have therefore been featuring hundreds of options for the children to explore. The airline’s IFE systems are prominently featuring the standard lineup of big studio kiddie fare from Disney/Pixar and the like. Apart from these, the airline also has an exclusive IFE channel only for the babies.
The airline offers special treat for kids with the infant-focused, educational channel BabyTV, which is presently the world’s popular baby and toddler network from FOX. This channel keeps the children completely entertained with its exclusive programs, which include a wide variety of learning games, baby songs and nursery rhymes. Moreover, the BabyTV broadcasts gently moving visuals and soft music designed for soothing babies and creating a calm atmosphere.
The pampering of parents with young fliers doesn’t stop here. While getting exclusive treatment on board the flights, Qatar Airways pays special attention during layovers too. The Hamad International Airport at Doha, Qatar Airways’ main hub, offers dedicated facilities for family so as to offer them optimum comfort and convenience. Among prominent family oriented facilities at the airport include parents’ room, climbing frames, in-terminal mini-rides and baby strollers.
