El Al Kids

We all love our kids, but El Al seems to really love them too. The airline welcomes children on its flights with bassinets for infants up to nine months old (when ordered in advance), diapers in several sizes and baby food upon request. Bottles can be warmed and lavatories are equipped with changing tables. Parents traveling with children 10 to 23 months old are assigned bulkhead seats to allow more room. Complimentary writing paper, crayons, children’s magazines, activity booklets and toys are given out and a special kid-friendly in-flight audio channel is available. Children’s meals are also offered and this past summer, special family flights were offered with a variety of entertainment including a clown, magician and a painting competition. Children are also welcome in El Al’s Matmid Club — children who are two years and older may enroll in the Matmid Kids frequent flyer program and earn the same number of points as any adult traveling with them, even though the airfare for children is up to 25 percent less. Matmid Kids members also receive a booklet containing coupons for discounts and two-for-one offers for events, children’s attractions, shopping, restaurants and more throughout Israel.
