Open Your Children’s Eyes to the World

International commercial flights tend to be a hassle, with delays, added fees and long lines, especially with children in tow. Why not make it a quick and worry-free flight to your international vacation destination? On ConSeaAir charter flights passengers depart from a private airport, or FBO, that offer small parking lots in close proximity to the FBO, and without parking fees. Passengers then enter the FBO, bypass security screening, and walk out onto the tarmac where their luggage is placed directly onto the plane. Once on board, the aircraft is ready for takeoff. Let’s take a look at a few tips when flying internationally with your children.

Familiarity

International trips are a huge change for children, so it alleviates a lot of the stress if you have some form of familiarity. It’s even better if you know locals that also have a child to create a fun atmosphere and a built-in play date. Fly in and out of the closest FBO to local friends or family with our private charter flights.

You Know Them Best

If your child tires easily, it is best not to plan a hiking trip through the Costa Rican rainforest. Perhaps leave the more adventurous vacation plans for later. Try out ConSeaAir’s air charter service and try out a kid-friendly all-inclusive resort like Barceló Tambor Beach with Barcy Kids Club, a children’s playground and a zoo. This way you can slowly get them outside their comfort zone. Some children like to have predetermined schedule and others go with the flow. Nap times are a must for certain children and can be skipped for others. Keep these particulars in mind when planning your international family trip.

Final Tips for Your International Trip

Be sure to get passports ahead of time in order to avoid additional fees. Find out if shots are necessary for certain countries and get them well in advance. Finally, do some activities that are more adult-oriented, such as touring a plantation, and show your children that every activity is not always focused on them. ConSeaAir’s air charter service will get you on your way to less fuss and more quality family time.
