10 Tips on Flying Flair Airlines with Children

Traveling with kids, most of us cringe. It’s a given that it can be stressful, I’ve been there and done that. I have been flying back and forth from Halifax, N.S to British Columbia for the last 10 years. The trips are always just as long as the last! The only difference now is that I fly with my children. Owen is a seasoned flyer he understands and gets it. He loves it! We just recently made a trip from Abbotsford, B.C to Hamilton, Ont thanks to Flair Airlines we got to visit my mom who came from Nova Scotia to visit with us.

It is the only time this year that we got to see her and it was a only a few days but it was better then nothing to us. We love her so much and so lucky we got some quality time with her. While there we had the opportunity of making Blog Podium, visiting Toronto and staying at one of the best hotels Carmen Best Western. It was the most needed little vacation!

All of our flights were on time, and worked so awesome. It was a smooth and easy ride with lots of beautiful scenery below. The staff were so accommodating and helpful to the fact that little O was with us. He even caught a quick sneak peek where the pilots sat! Our experience flying with Flair Air was defiantly one of the better flights I have ever travelled! Best part other then it being totally family friendly is that it’s also affordable for any family to fit into the budget.

With my fair share of flying with children experiences I’m dishing out some tips that help me as a frantic mother be a little less stressed out. Thats really the last thing we need on a very long flight!

10 Tips on Flying Flair Airlines with Children

  1. Bring lots of gum, treats, and drinks after security. This saved us just to have something to chew on and slightly fill the belly until the next layover.
  2. Pack a goodies bag, but make sure that you give it to your child when they are actually bored. I’m talking flying in the air an hour or two in. Open one thing at a time and play.
  3. Defiantly bring a neck pillow. I use to look at these things and laugh, but one day randomly I bought one for our trip and it saved Owens sleep.
  4. Layovers are your friend. I remember flying alone I use to by pass these as much as I could but quickly learnt that the more with kids the better. It helps them stretch, see new things and relax their mind not feeling so cramped.
  5. Spacious seating, Flair had this. They let us roam around with permission and helped to accommodate our seats just a little better for us.
  6. Make sure you pack headphones and pre download all the game apps you’ll want during the flight.
  7. Early morning flights may seem like a bad idea, but it will be really helpful. I found that every early morning flight we’ve taken the kids always sleep way more.
  8. Teach them how to read your boarding pass, times, gates and what to do in case of emergency.
  9. Pack them up and make them carry their own bags, backpacks are the perfect way to start. Owen can now carry a backpack and a rolling suitcase on his own!
  10. Thank the staff that helped you get on and off, for helping you and making your flight a little more peaceful.

Safe Travels. And always remember only you can really hear your crying baby. Forget the others!

  1. Hi Keisha❤️
    I had the best time with you, Owen and Cody. Thank you for challenging me to be adventurous. Traveling by myself for the first time was scary but I faced my fears to be with you both and it was worth it!
    The folks at Carmen’s including the gang at the Baci restaurant made me feel right at home! But I don’t think I’ll ever be able to enjoy Italian cuisine anywhere again now that I’ve tasted theirs lol. Sameer, the friendly ? driver delivered me safely to the hotel and kept us moving here and there.
    I got to teach Owen to tie his shoes (I learned a neat trick off YouTube), “rocket launch”in the pool and overload on fidget spinners. We talked world events and politics at breakfast. Wow! That boy is deep! He can certainly hold his own in a conversation. I’ve always loved parent-child days – when you get one to one time with your child. It’s just as important to do it as a Nana!
