Travelling with children

Young flyers get special attention on our flights, with tasty meals, non-stop entertainment, toys and goodies to inspire the greatest of imaginations

Families come first with our services for young flyers

Enjoy extra comforts on your journey with us

We give special consideration to the things you need to make your family trip comfortable and convenient. That’s why we have special family check-in desks, and we make sure families board first. Pick up one of our complimentary strollers at Dubai International airport and shop for kids’ treats at Duty Free.

In our airport lounges you can use our mother and baby room to change and feed your little adventurer, and children can enjoy video games in our play areas.

No limits on fun

Boredom is banished on our flights with non-stop children’s entertainment

Watch faces turn into toothy grins with our dedicated children’s inflight entertainment. Kids can pop on their brightly coloured headsets and choose from over 50 Disney favourites, the latest kids TV shows and popular cartoons that feed their imagination.

They can also challenge themselves or their friends to more than 100 exciting inflight games on our award-winning entertainment system, ice.

Capture special moments with our onboard camera. Ask our crew to snap your picture and you can take home a framed photo of your adventures together.

There are wild animals on board!

Meet our new Fly With Me Animals

Young explorers can share their journey with a new furry friend. There’s Enrico the monkey, Peek U the panda, Lewis the lion and Leila the camel who have joined us from around the world. Children can wrap up with their buddy in a blanket, or attach a little cuddly companion to their stroller when they’re on the move.

Infants can explore our Fly With Me Animals magazine full of puzzles. It comes with a set of coloured pencils and it’s theirs to take home after their flight.

We also help the little ones enjoy the journey by giving you an infant care kit filled with useful essentials like nappies, bibs and wipes. And babies can drift off to sleep in the comfort of our bassinets.

Inspiration for tomorrow’s explorers

Take a trip around the world with our kids’ packs

We’ve teamed up with the travel experts at Lonely Planet Kids to create packs that inspire older children to explore more of the world.

Young adventurers can delve into a retro, travel-themed bag or lunch cooler filled with educational books designed exclusively for our flights. Inside they’ll also find amazing world facts, creative crafts and more. And kids can record memorable moments along the way in their travel journal.

It’s theirs to enjoy on the flight and to take with them when they land.

Tasty meals for your whole family

Our meals get the thumbs up from young flyers

Satisfy healthy appetites with our meals for children and babies.

Young flyers between two and 12 years old will love our range of children’s favourites. They’ll also get a snack box filled with treats to enjoy along the journey. If your child has a special diet, tell us when you book and we’ll serve a meal that’s right for them.

Choose from our range of prepared baby meals, or if you’d prefer to bring your own, our cabin crew will help you with food and bottle warming.
