Emirates makes Flying Enjoyable and Stress Free for Families

December is usually a busy month for parents and children with the holidays approaching. Some of the top family flights out of Kuala Lumpur during the busy season includes Dubai, Malta, Seychelles, and more. Each city is unique in its own way especially when travelling with family. Emirates has expanded its products and services to introduce its dedicated online platform to help families fly better and easier.

Whether you’re on a holiday or on a business trip, there’s nothing worse than a chaotic and stressful start to your trip. The good news is that Emirates not only provides a wide variety of amenities, but the right ones to create a family-friendly environment so that passengers can sit back, relax and not worry about the tantrums onboard.

Families have the privilege of having a convenient and comfortable start to their journey with priority boarding to make sure everything is in order before takeoff. To ease travelling with infants, families have access to bassinets, changing tables in bathrooms and an infant kit filled with useful essentials like nappy cream, bibs and wipes to make life easier. Families with infants also have special baggage allowances to reduce the hassle of travelling with infants.

Kids on board will be able to choose from a selection of tasty and nutritious meals that will keep even the fussiest and crankiest of eaters happy. If your child has a specific diet, fret not! Simply choose from the special meals when booking online and Emirates will serve a meal that is right for your children. Milk formulas and bottles are also available on board, or if you prefer to bring your own food or formula, the crew will be happy to keep it warm for you.

Flying with the family has its challenges, but it also has its rewards. And big ones too, like international flights. Because with every Emirates and flydubai flight, children between 2 and 17 years can earn miles and redeem them across the entire network. Plus, as the miles stack up, so do perks like priority check-ins, extra baggage allowance and reserving those sought-after window seats. Joining Skywards Skysurfers is as simple as linking the parent and child accounts, and you’re on your way.

Young flyers on the other hand, will be nothing short of inspired with the non-stop entertainment on ice, featuring the latest cartoons, animated movies and Disney classics. Children will be able to choose from over 4,500 channels of award winning entertainment. Give your children some comfy, funky headphones and let them enjoy from over 150 TV channels dedicated just for them from their own personal TV.

On top of all that is on board, ignite the wanderlust in young travellers with Emirates’ Lonely Planet Kids packs, filled with interesting trivia facts and creative craft, or hand them a furry friend to accompany them on long trips with ‘Fly With Me Animals’.
