Just in time for the summer holiday season, SWISS is introducing a ‘Logbook’ that offers young passengers information about flying, pictures to colour in, and a pages to keep a record of every flight they take – and have it signed by the captain. There will also be special Logbook competitions with small prizes to win. The airline will be issuing the Logbook to young passengers aged between 3 and 10 from Monday 14 July.
The Logbook has been developed in collaboration with the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne, the Kiditec company and Zurich and Geneva airports, which are also featured in it.
In addition to the Logbook, SWISS’s on-board fun for children includes an extensive range of cartoons, kids’ movies and their own music channel on its IFE system, which is available on all long-haul flights, and special meals for children and babies, too. The IFE system offers 15 movies, cartoons and various computer games for children, along with six TV shows for varying age groups. These are supplemented by numerous CDs and a dedicated “SWISS KIDS” music channel.
On long-haul flights, children aged between two and nine are served a child’s meal, which is presented together with a goody bag and a sweet surprise. Special child’s meals can also be pre-ordered for young flyers aged between 10 and 12. And for its youngest travellers under two, SWISS provides special baby food of puréed vegetables or fruit. These special meals can be ordered free of charge up to 48 hours before departure when making the flight reservation, by calling the SWISS Service Center or via a travel agent.
