Jet2holidays’ top tips for travelling with tweens

  • As you’ll be travelling in the school holidays, the airport could be a bit busier, so we advise arriving two to three hours before departure.
  • Many airports have priority family lanes at security, but it’s best to double-check on their website in case you have to pre-book.
  • It always pays to be prepared, so save yourself the hassle of a last-minute shopping dash and pre-order all your holiday essentials to pick up at one of the airport pharmacies.
  • The older the kids get, the bigger the appetite! But did you know you can pre-order your onboard food before you fly? You’ll get served first on the plane and you can bag all of your favourite snacks – winning!
  • Window seats are a great way to occupy fussy flyers, as seeing what shapes they can spy in the clouds is sure to spark their imaginations. Head to Manage My Booking to reserve these before you go.
  • Make the most of the 10kg hand luggage included and pack plenty of onboard activities to keep them occupied!
  • If you’ve got an iPad or tablet, take time to download some apps that can work in flight mode. Audio books are a great option too, but don't forget to bring headphones.
  • Ooh, what’s that you can see in the plane seat pocket? JetAway, our inspirational onboard magazine, is chock-full of holiday highlights. Get your heads together and work through the fun puzzle section. You might even uncover some helpful hints about the destination you’re visiting.
  • Bring a diary or scrapbook which your tweens can fill with holiday mementos. It’s a great way to get them engaged in your trip, and travel in general.
  • Got a question? No matter how big or small, our friendly Red Team will be on hand to help. Just look out for those bright uniforms and friendly smiles.
