Plane Travel With the Youngsters

If you're a parent who is planning an upcoming trip with your children that involves
plane travel, then you're probably more than a little nervous about how things might go before, during and after takeoff. Thankfully, these convenient tips from our friend at Brisbane Jet Base can help make the whole experience go a lot smoother and easier for everyone involved, fellow passengers included.



Consider Flight Time Beforehand

If at all possible, think about flight times before you purchase your plane tickets. Try not to just take the first available option you see. Aim to purchase tickets for a flight that takes place when your kids should be more tired and less energetic. If that means booking a flight that starts very late at night or in the wee hours of the morning, then that's the way to go. If your flight takes place when your kids are feeling their most "alert" and "awake," they may act a bit more hyper than you'd like.



Bring Kid-Friendly Necessities

When you're on a plane with children who may get cranky and frustrated due to being confined to small spaces for extended periods of time, the goal should be to keep them as comfortable and entertained as possible for the whole duration. When you pack your carry-on bags, be sure to include favorite toys, snacks and beverages. The more relaxed and comfortable your kids are while up in the air, the better they'll behave. The "toys" you pack don't necessarily have to be toys, either. Coloring books, for example, can often do wonders for keeping little ones occupied and entertained for hours on end.



Speak to Your Children in Advance

Don't just put your children on a plane without making sure they have a little idea of what's about to happen. Give them step-by-step details of the plane experience beginning at checking in and boarding all the way to landing. The more they understand what's about to come, the better equipped they'll be to handle the whole situation. Not only can it help to make sure your children grasp the idea of plane travel, but it also can help to make them feel enthusiastic about it. Try to get them to think about flying on a plane as being a fun adventure -- not something to dread.

Practice Strong Organisation

Be uber-organised as soon as you get on the plane with your children. Make sure you have all of your "must-haves" easily accessible inside of the seat pockets and right below your chair. These must-haves include your kids' coloring books, toys, snacks and nappies, for example. If all of these things are easily accessible to you, you won't have to inconvenience other passengers by moving too much to get to the items your kids need. If your child is throwing a tantrum because he wants his crackers and it takes you five whole minutes to get to them, don't be surprised if you're surrounded by a few rows of unhappy and highly annoyed passengers. The key to successful plane travel with children is not only making sure the young ones are happy but also making sure that the people around you are.
