Air New Zealand en­cour­ages kids to snug­gle up in­flight

Onboard Hospitality - - Industry Update -

Air New Zealand is de­vel­op­ing its Sky­couch prod­uct to in­clude a ded­i­cated in­fant har­ness and belt, al­low­ing in­fants to re­main ly­ing down through­out the cruise phase of flight.

Launched in 2011, the Sky­couch com­prises three Econ­omy seats that con­vert into a flat, flex­i­ble sur­face for rest, re­lax­ation and play, giv­ing parents greater free­dom to choose how they fly long-haul.

The Sky­couch Cud­dle Belt, which was pre­vi­ously only cer­ti­fied to al­low two adults or an adult and child trav­el­ling to­gether to lie down on the Sky­couch has also been up­dated to al­low two chil­dren to use it, pro­vid­ing greater flex­i­bil­ity to fam­i­lies. A new in­fant pod also pro­vides ad­di­tional com­fort and pro­tec­tion for the air­line’s youngest Sky­couch pas­sen­gers.
