From today parents can breathe a sigh of relief when flying with children after Virgin Australia lifted their ban on kid’s sleeping devices.
The ban was put in place on sleeping devices earlier this year when the industry sparked concerned around the safety of the products, namely the potential to impede access to seats, aisles and emergency equipment.
Virgin Australia has become the only major Australian airline to welcome a range of kids’ sleep devices on board which will make it easier for travelling families to enjoy some rest when flying. The move from Virgin follows Air New Zealand who recently eased their policy on children’s sleeping devices.
There is no word from Qantas and Jetstar about the potential of lifting bans on their flights.
