Adventures in the Sky: interactive entertainment, educational activities and tailored parties in the sky to create a young traveler's dream voyage

  • Parties in the sky with world-renowned party planners
  • The first children-trained cabin crew in private aviation
  • Expert led approach based on data-driven insight and observations

LONDON, June 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VistaJet, the first and only global business aviation company, today announced the launch of Adventures in the Sky, the most extensive travelers' program designed especially for children.

With one in four of VistaJet flights in 2017 having a child on-board*, offering activities dedicated to young travelers is proving increasingly important.

Created for passengers aged one to 16 years old, Adventures in the Sky** will turn VistaJet cabins into playrooms and party venues. Children will be actively engaged with storytelling illustration books, personalized explorer backpacks and family activity hampers, and serviced by children-trained hostesses, offering them special menus and a host of interactive adventures.

Parties in the Sky
At the forefront of Adventures in the Sky is a series of themed parties, created in collaboration with world-renowned event-planners Sharky and George. Each activity is hosted on-board by an expert team, to make young fliers' time in the air truly memorable.

Alice in the Sky takes children down the rabbit hole and into a magical world where boys and girls can host their own Mad Hatter's Tea Party, play flamingo croquet and the Contrariwise game.

The Secret Mission trains recruits as secret service agents to unravel an international criminal operation. Guided by an in-flight Spy Chief, new agents will receive Kingsman-inspired training in the art of writing and decrypting code, taking fingerprints, crime scene techniques and secret messaging.

For the young cinephile, Movies in the Sky will include a film crew equipped with camera, editing and green screen equipment to create their own movie from script writing and casting to make-up, acting, filming and special effects. Children can act out their favorite blockbuster or bring new ideas to life.

Adventure Packs
VistaJet has created a series of activity packs. Explorer Backpacks, personalized to the individual child's age and their travel destination, are designed to be used both on-board and for days afterwards. For the whole family, personalized Activity Hampers will be prepared, full of activities to create together.

To entertain its younger passengers, VistaJet has also created a series of six hand-illustrated sticker-books where children can follow the adventures of protagonists Miloh and Scarlet.

Private Dining
VistaJet's Private Dining chefs have created a new menu to appeal to children from anywhere in the world and all the dishes provide the healthy requirements their parents expect.

A Child Expert On-Board
With many families traveling with a nanny, VistaJet has taken the unprecedented step to train all its Cabin Hostesses with the prestigious early years education and childcare institute, Norland College. The dedicated training program covers child development and behaviors, understanding family dynamics and recognizing times of need for families when traveling.

VistaJet is the first private aviation company to take these steps to provide the best service for every passenger.

* Identified as children born after June 1, 2001. 
** Additional children services are dedicated to VistaJet's Program members. Prices on application. Services are available from multiple global locations, and in a large number of languages.
