If you are a regular reader of The JetSet Family, chances are you’ve experienced flying with a young child. Some of us have had great experiences, and some of us have the type of stories nightmares are made of. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines wants to change all that.
Making Family Travel Fun
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines reached out and asked us to share a new series of short animated films featuring their wonderful KLM mascot, Bluey. This adorable little aircraft invites passengers and their pint-sized jetsetters to follow his big adventures.In his theatrical debut, Bluey, his father and his friend Windy head to the annual Zundert flower parade for a very exciting journey.
Watch as Bluey comes to life in “Bluey The Movie” on KLM’s YouTube channel and onboard the aircraft during all intercontinental KLM flights starting June. But for now, here’s a sneak peek:
In addition to the animated shorts, several Bluey products are available as well. Everything from keycords, trolleys and card games, to Bluey meal boxes for child passengers on international flights. Those travelling without a parent or guardian are invited to visit the newly renovated KLM Junior Jet Lounge at Schiphol where Mascot Bluey will be a permanent fixture as well.
Look for Bluey! Family Check-in
Extremely popular amongst the jetsetting tots, see if you can spot Bluey around the airport and on board. Those departing from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol can look for the desk with the Bluey sign. KLM agents will not only assist your family with check-in, but you can also drop off your baggage and kids even get a little surprise!
YUM! Kids Meals
Special children’s meals on intercontinental KLM flights are available for kids 2 and older at no extra cost. These meals must be ordered at least 24 hours before departure. The menu varies, but Bluey is in each box along with a junior pilot adventure game or junior pilot diploma.
Those under the age of 2 will receive a complimentary Bluey bib courtesy of KLM.
Every child over the age of 2 receives a Bluey play set complete with memory game, tic tac toe, pencils, key cord, card game, sticker, and baggage label. But the best part? A Bluey eye mask to help your child get some rest on those long flights.
On European flights, the mini-globetrotters receive a Bluey passport holder and activity book.
Thank you Bluey + KLM Royal Dutch Airlines for making travelling a pleasant experience for both parents and children.
