Kids and Kids Solo:

Air France is constantly looking out for its young globetrotters. The new summer Kids and Kids Solo services, covering reservations, check-in, connecting flights and the flight itself, will make their journey child’s play.

Families and children
The pre-flight advent calendar for dreaming
Some families going on vacation this year will get a surprise: a small illustrated case sent to their home. Inside are seven windows that can be opened one at a time on the seven days leading up to departure. Each one contains a small card offering a fun presentation of one of the airline’s children’s services (priority boarding, special meal, on-board entertainments, games kit, AF Press, soft toy label), as well as a piece that will enable them to assemble a wooden airplane day after day. The small case exists in digital form for families who have not received the cardboard version. It provides a series of seven animated films that will entertain the children while they wait, information about the Kids package, advice and tips for preparing the family trip.
Magic in the air on long-haul flights
This summer, an Air France flight attendant who is also a magician will teach young passengers four tricks, in videos featured in our in-flight entertainment program. Every six months, our young passengers can learn four new tricks. Watch the magician carefully and then amaze your parents during the flight by doing tricks yourself. The tricks are performed using objects in the new games kit that will be handed out to three- to eight-year-olds after takeoff, with an activity book, a pack of colored pencils, a magnetic photograph frame, an anti-stress ball and small animals for collecting.
Meditation for young and old Children and their parents will be able to relax in the air and discover the benefits of meditation thanks to the “Mind” app and the publishers Les Arènes and L’Iconoclaste. In total, 12 guided meditations (in four languages) will be available as part of the in-flight entertainment program: six for children, taken from the book Sitting Still Like a Frog, by Eline Snel, and six for adults from the bestseller Méditer, jour après jour, by Christophe André.
The fun, stimulating digital kiosk
Simple to use, Air France’s digital kiosk allows you to download your kids’ favorite publications on tablets and smartphones up to 30 hours before your flight. For vacation time, Air France Press is offering young travelers 13 publications in French: Le Petit Quotidien, Mon Quotidien, L’Actu, Picsou, Le Journal de Mickey, Un jour une actu, Toupie, Toboggan, Géo Ado, Histoires pour les petits, J’aime lire, Science et Vie découvertes, Sciences et Vie junior. The app also includes a selection of publications in English, Spanish and German: My Weekly, My Little Weekly, Mi Semanal, Meine Woche.
Traveling alone with Kids Solo
Your smartphone keeps track of them
It’s now possible to book and buy a plane ticket on your smartphone (for now, to and from destinations in mainland France only) for a child traveling unaccompanied (Kids Solo) on Air France routes, thanks to the airline’s mobile app. Furthermore, with this app (for Android and iOS), you can follow, in real time, your child’s progress (check-in, boarding, take-off, arrival).This information can be shared with the person waiting for the child, who can even send you a selfie of the child when they have arrived safe and sound.
At Paris-Orly and Paris-CDG, the airline offers Kids Solo spaces for between flights. Terminal 2EL at Paris-CDG offers a new space for all unaccompanied minors with stopovers lasting more than two and a half hours. Several rooms under the supervision of Air France staff offer optimum conditions for young flyers: relaxation room after a long-haul flight, games room for five- to nine-year-olds, lounge with library, TV and USB plugs to charge smartphones and tablets, special games space for adolescents with Sony PS4 consoles and table football, as well as free Wi-Fi connection. This summer, Air France wishes its young passengers a great flight.
A menu for every age
On all long-haul flights, the airline offers a meal for babies (6 to 24 months) and a fun child’s meal (2 to 8 years) that is easy to eat and made with organic ingredients. Nine- to eleven-year-olds can choose between an adult menu and a child’s menu.
