‘ScootinSilence’. “The option is for passengerts seeking an exclusive cabin, extra legroom and confidence that under 12s will be seated in another part of the aircraft" said Scoot ceo Campbell Wilson. Located at the front of the Economy


section, a self-contained cabin with 41 extra-legroom seats has been declared off-limits to passengers under 12 years. Scoot charges A$16 on top of a


regular Economy fare to sit in its small 'ScootinSilence' Economy cabin, located at the very front of the economy section of its Boeing 777s, while AirAsia X charges A$11-A$35 (depending on the route) for its Quiet Zone area in the first seven rows of Economy class.


NANNIES TAKE THE STRAIN Taking a more pro-active approach to this escalating market, Etihad Airways has responded with the introduction of a ‘Flying Nanny’ on its long haul flights, offering a ‘helping hand’ to young families' unaccompanied minors. Gulf Air’s applauded ‘Sky Nanny’ was the first to be introduced back in 2003 and the service has now been extended to the Bahrain Lounge. Etihad aims to train up to 500 Flying Nannies by the end of the year, all of whom will have undergone an in-depth course with world-renowned Norland College. They will study child psychology and sociology and be taught to identify different types of


behaviour and the developmental stages that children go through and how to appreciate the perspective and needs of travelling families. In addition they will learn different


creative ways to entertain and engage with children during flights. Says Aubrey Tiedt, Etihad vp guest


services: “Flying with a young family can be a daunting task, even for the most experienced travellers, and the Flying Nanny role demonstrates our understanding of our guests’ needs and our commitment to making the journey as relaxing and comfortable as possible. This includes helping serve children’s meals early in the flight and offering activities and challenges to help entertain and occupy younger guests.” The children will also meet Etihad characters – Zoe the bee, Jamool the camel, Kundai the lion, and Boo the panda on their flight.

Entertainment for Etihad’s young passengers is created by Watermark. The kit contains straws, stickers and cardboard for the Flying Nanny to teach simple arts and crafts. Other activities include the Japanese art of origami to fold paper into sculptures and sock puppets. For older children, the Flying


Nanny is equipped with quizzes and challenges to keep them occupied and will take them on a tour of the galley during quieter moments of the flight.Interestingly, not a mention of iPads or apps.


CRUISING WITH KIDS Leading the way in kids’ onboard entertainment are cruise lines with no end of options ranging across all ages. While airlines might not want to go to the extreme of hiring their


own Mr Bump or installing a bungee line, they could learn a thing or two
