Award-winning Qatar Airways fly to over 160 destinations worldwide. In the UK alone the airline flies out of London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and Cardiff.

As the only Gulf carrier to be part of the oneworld airline alliance, Qatar Airways also offer their passengers a choice of more than 1000 airports across 150 countries. And it has been named ‘Skytrax Airline of the Year’ no less than four times – which is like winning all the Oscars rolled into one, over and over again. So when Qatar Airways say, ‘let our family take care of yours’, there’s absolutely no question, you’re in safe hands.

1/4 At last, an airline that understands families

Keeping kids entertained, well fed, contented and calm on flights is a priority for Qatar Airways. It’s one of the few airlines which doesn’t expect parents to ‘control’ bored, overtired or hungry children, simply by making sure the need never arises.

Details like seats with extra legroom, even in Economy, curb the most determined little seat-back-kickers and give older kids plenty of space to spread out, play and sleep.

You can lighten up on cabin bags with babies and toddlers because everything from in-flight cots and nappies to bottles, baby food and soft toys are available on-board.

And don’t even think about packing your usual kit to keep boredom at bay. Qatar Airways have you completely covered on that score too, with the extraordinary Oryx One in-flight entertainment system which gives kids of all ages more options than they’ll ever wear out; ranging from interactive games to family movies and favourite TV shows on channels like Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Disney, there’s even BabyTV so toddlers and babies get in on the fun as well.

Plus, the Oryx One dual-screen interface means kids can browse or play games and watch TV or movies at the same time. Try fitting all that into your carry-on.
