A helping hand in the sky 

Flying Nanny logo Do you ever wish that more help was available with children on long-haul flights, so you can sit back and have a little "me time"?

Our Flying Nanny is here to provide an extra pair of hands – whether it’s helping to get the children settled for bed, keeping them entertained or simply offering advice and support to parents. Every Flying Nanny will be equipped with a goody bag of games and activities to help keep the kids occupied, easing the pressure on you.

And while we cannot take the kids completely off your hands, as we must cater to the needs of every family onboard, we hope our Flying Nanny makes your experience with us a little bit more relaxing and enjoyable.

Hints & tips

For a relaxing flight

Relieve ear pain by sucking or chewing
Give your child something to suck or chew to relieve ear pain caused by changes in air pressure during take-off and landing. Blowing their nose may also help.

Go slow on sweets
Avoid too many sugary snacks and drinks as these can increases your child’s energy levels.

Safety first, seatbelt on
Some children can get upset at the idea of being strapped into their seat but the aircraft can’t take-off or land if they’re not properly secured.

Try not to get too stressed out
The more relaxed you are, the more likely your child is to be calm and content.

Don't hesitate to ask for help
Our team is always on-hand to offer you assistance.
