Birmingham Airport (BHX/EGBB) has been named as the UK’s most family friendly airport by Netflights.com.
Netflights.com polled 2,000 British families based on their habits and experiences of using airports in the UK with children.
Birmingham topped the poll thanks to 80% of its flights leaving on time in June 2018, designated baby changing areas, express security lanes, free water fountains and free Wi-Fi, the latter often being a must have for modern families!
Birmingham Airport recently launched the new look SkyZone area. The Airport’s interactive and educational children’s play area is located after security at gate 55. SkyZone is designed to create a fun and engaging experience for all children pre-flight.
Birmingham Airport is also introducing a new child focused initiative at security. Each child will be greeted and awarded with a Zoom sticker when they go through security to make the security experience for children less daunting.
Paul Hopkinson, Marketing Director at Netflights: “We are delighted that Birmingham has ranked so highly against other airports in the UK, Ireland and Channel Islands for its family friendliness. Its central location, free drinking water, free Wi-Fi, play areas and punctual flights meant it scored very highly and is a good option for those travelling with children this summer.”
Stuart Haseley-Neirup, Head of Customer Experience at Birmingham Airport said: “We are delighted at being named the most family-friendly Airport. We put the passenger at the heart of everything we do, meaning we tailor the airport experience to the needs of all of our 13m passengers that travel through whether they are on business, leisure or as a family.”
