Flying With Kids Made Easy With Virgin Atlantic

Big Smiles For Little People

You have just booked that all anticipated family holiday and palm fringed beaches with endless stretch of turquoise coastlines are in sight.  There is just one hurdle standing between you and your sun-kissed island getaway.

What is that you may ask? It’s the accusing glares of fellow passengers as they anticipate the glorious wails and deep tissue back massage from your bundle of joy (or tiny terror). As adorable as your kids may be, your Heidi Klum wannabe toddler who thing the aisle is her runway, the screeching meltdowns and 1000 “are we there yet”, can make it seem like you in your own horror movie titled “Toddlers on the plane”. Your dream holiday seems but a distant memory for now.
