Air Travel Safety

I’m always on the hunt for new information about air travel safety for kids.

The FAA is pretty clear about what they recommend: “We encourage the use of child safety seats in airplanes…” If you’ve always wondered why they have not mandated the use of child seats on board an aircraft, read the rest of this press release http://www.faa.gov/news/press_releases/news_story.cfm?contentKey=1966 . virginbritax

 

As usual, there are only a handful of airlines that are ahead of the curve in helping families travel. Check out the new pictures on Virgin Atlantic airline’s website http://www.virgin-atlantic.com/en/us/passengerinformation/travellingwithchildren/index.jsp. Not only do they provide skycots/bassinets for young passengers, they also provide special BRITAX car seats on board for use rear and forward facing.

The FAA has a good brochure on flying with kids too: http://www.airsafe.com/kidsafe/faa_brochure.pdf
