New Guide For Families Flying With Children

PENNINGTON, N.J., June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With more people flying this summer than in the past six years (210 million passengers are expected to fly on U.S. carriers from 6/1-8/31*), Family Vacation Critic, has released a family-friendly airline guide for families who are planning to fly with young children over summer break.

The new airline guide breaks down family-friendly amenities by airline, including:

  • Pre-boarding for families with children
  • The option to carry young toddlers on an adult's lap
  • Diaper changers
  • Discounted child fares
  • Kids meals
  • The ability to heat bottles
  • Kid-friendly entertainment
  • Wi-Fi access
  • Stroller gate check

"When traveling with young children, one of the more stressful parts of the trip can be just getting to the destination," says Lissa Poirot, editor of Family Vacation Critic. "When it comes to air travel, there are a number of factors for parents to consider – bigger things, like whether there will be onboard kids meals or kid-friendly entertainment, and more specific concerns like if the airline will heat a baby bottle or if passengers can gate check strollers. As airlines continue to alter their onboard experiences, it's tough to keep track of what specific airlines offer – particularly for families. Knowing the answers ahead of time can help parents search for flights on carriers that provide what they need, or help to be better prepared for the journey ahead of time."
