HCM City (Biz Hub) — Emirates Airlines now hands out Fly with Me Animals for infants and toddlers, and specially designed Fly with Me Lonely Planet activity bags for six to 12 year old passengers.

"Over 4 million children travel with us each year, which makes young travellers among our most important customers. We are committed to ensuring a smooth travel experience for families," said Adel Al Redha, Emirates' Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer.

Emirates' Fly with Me Animals are a new approach to its signature children's products, replacing the popular Fly with Me Monsters. The toys are designed for infants and children up to eight years old, and are meant to be both entertaining and educational.

The first four animals to make their debut on board are Lewis the Lion from Africa, Peek U the Panda from China, Enrico the Monkey from Latin America, and Leila the Camel from the Middle East. Four new Fly with Me Animals will be introduced every six months.

In addition to the Fly with Me Animals, Emirates has partnered with Lonely Planet to create activity bags containing travel content tailored for children. Each bag features different items to encourage a sense of adventure in young travellers.

With 234 aircraft, including the wide-body A380 and Boeing 777, Emirates Airline currently flies to 146 destinations in 81 countries. It also operates a non-stop daily flight to HCM City from its international hub in Dubai. — VNS
