Gulf Air introduces sky nanny service
Gulf Air has announced the introduction of a professional Sky Nanny on its routes between Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and London, and the Bahrain-Sydney route.
Every Sky Nanny will be a fully qualified member of the in-flight service team, delivering specialist care for children up to the age of 12 traveling with their parents or as unaccompanied minors.
Development of this enhanced in-flight childcare service has been undertaken with Norland College, one of the foremost establishments in the world for childcare and education.
The main duties of the all-female Sky Nannies team will be to provide professional attention and care from the moment of boarding the flight to the end of the journey. This will include keeping children entertained and fed, giving parents a breather.
Once the young passengers are seated and settled, the Sky Nanny, who will be identified on board by a special apron, will explain her services, which include checking dietary requirements, and keeping children amused with a range of English and Arabic books, comics and special children entertainment channels.
A specially tailored childcare training course was developed for members of Gulf Air Flight Attendants selected as Sky Nannies. Special focus was placed on learning about children’s physical, cognitive, language, emotional and social development, how to manage children’s behavior in a positive manner and how to provide suitable activities for young children when traveling. — (menareport.com)
