Qatar Airways, in partnership with Hasbro Inc, has updated its range of plush toys, children’s activity kits and in-flight lunch boxes.
Plush infant toys Elefun and Mr Potato Head are joined on board by classic favourites such as Clue Junior, Guess Who, Monopoly Here and Now World Edition and The Game of Life for older children, the airline said yesterday.
The specially prepared children’s meals feature new Pictureka or Monopoly designed lunch boxes – a gift that children can take home.
“Special thought has been paid to families travelling on overnight flights with the introduction of a glow-in-the-dark Clue Junior entertainment pack,” the statement noted.
The updated plush toys, activity kits and lunch boxes are available now on Qatar Airways’ A380 services between Bangkok, Guangzhou, London, Paris, Sydney, and Doha. The updated range will be rolled out across the airline’s global network of destinations from early-2017.
Qatar Airways senior vice-president (Customer Experience) Rossen Dimitrov said, “Flying can be a new and exciting experience for children, and our partnership with Hasbro Inc allows us to make their journey extra special.”
The lunch boxes are part of the special children’s meal and must be ordered either at the time of booking or by calling the local Qatar Airways office at least 24 hours prior to departure, the airline said.
Qatar Airways’ in-flight entertainment system Oryx One provides hundreds of entertainment options for minors via a dedicated children’s platform. Oryx One also features the first dual-screen interface – allowing children to multi-task by playing a game while watching a movie.
Qatar Airways also provides an unaccompanied minor service across its global network, with children enjoying priority assistance through immigration, security, boarding, baggage and Customs clearances.
