While the weather in much of Germany is miserable, airberlin is offering a booking special specifically for families. Children get a 100 per cent discount on net air fares, allowing families to set off on holiday without putting too much of a strain on their purse strings. Under this offer, airberlin will only charge taxes and fees for children up to the age of eleven travelling in the company of at least one adult. The family special is available for booking from 14th to 25th June 2016, and is valid for flights from 1st July to 4th April 2017. The promotion is available on selected flights to European cities and coastal regions, such as in Spain, Greece or Croatia.
airberlin will transport buggies, prams, child car seats and travel cots for children up to the age of eleven at no extra charge. airberlin will also give each child a toy set containing a colouring book, a puzzle or a comic to ensure plenty of in-flight entertainment. The flight attendants will be equally happy to warm up bottles for the youngest guests. Most of the aircraft in the airberlin fleet have a baby’s changing table in the toilets.
Holiday for the whole family – dogs and cats go, too
Families can take their dog and cat with them in the cabin, depending on the weight and size of their pets. Including the soft box, the weight must not exceed 10kg. Prices to take the family pet in the cabin start from €40 per route, depending on the destination and the fare. Advance bookings for four-legged friends are essential.
Trend: unaccompanied children
Holidays are also the times of year when many children spend time with the parent that they don’t usually live with. Children aged five and over can travel alone with airberlin. The flight attendants will take special care of the young guests, and even at the airport an employee will always stay with the child. Children under eleven must be registered for this service. It is optional for children aged twelve and over. Bookings are possible up to 24 hours before departure. The service is particularly popular on the domestic routes between Munich and Berlin, Dusseldorf and Hamburg. On intercontinental flights, the most popular connections are Chicago-Berlin, Dusseldorf-Miami and Dusseldorf-Fort Myers.
