Congratulations to Air Transat on receiving the Family Friendly Airline Award!
The prize was awarded by the Kids First Fund to carriers that provide additional services and extra comfort to children and their parents. Air Transat came out on top as travellers from all over the world voted in a first-ever poll on Facebook to select the best airline for family travel. Nearly 2,000 Facebook friends considered the services provided by six airlines: Air Transat, Emirates, Jetstar, Kingfisher, Qatar and TAM.
Air Transat’s Kids Club finished first with 49% of the votes. Travellers obviously appreciate its services for children, which include a welcome kit, dedicated airport counters, prize drawings, and an onboard birthday celebration.
“All of the airlines in the poll provide exceptional services to cater to the needs of family travellers. It’s very apparent by the comments posted by Facebook friends that these consumers have a strong bond with their favourite airline for family travel,” said Jay Sorensen, president of the Kids First Fund. “In particular, Air Transat has tapped a strong reservoir of support through its Kids Club initiative.”
“For nearly 25 years now, children and families have been a top priority for Air Transat. As Canada’s number one holiday airline, we make it part of daily life to surpass customer expectations. And we have delivered the goods on many fronts with the Kids’ Club and our partnerships with children’s charities in Canada and overseas,” said Allen B. Graham, President and CEO of Air Transat.
Parents who are flying with infants will also be happy to know that Air Transat also has change tables in the washrooms and bassinets to accommodate a sleeping infant. (Please call ahead to make that their is availability on your flight)
