Airporter team up with Bubblebum Booster Seat!
Airporter team up with Bubblebum to provide a safer & softer trip to the Airport!
We are so pleased to announce that we are teaming up with local company Bubblebum Booster Seat to provide even safer and more comfy travel for kids on all our coaches.
With more services than ever before between Derry/Londonderry and the Belfast Airports we want to ensure that all our passengers travel in the safest way possible.
The safest way for children to travel in cars & coaches is with an appropriate child car seat. At Airporter, we understand that the last thing passengers need is more luggage to carry. So, we have introduced the Inflatable Bubblebum Booster Seat to every Airporter fleet for every journey.
The Bubblebum Booster Seat was launched at Airporter on 9th June 2017 and we had some mini Airporter passengers come and test them out. They were a huge hit and got a massive thumbs up from our mini VIPs.
Child safety is an essential element of travelling and with the school holidays just around the corner we have more children travelling on our services.
Here are some of Airporter’s useful top tips to make your trip to the airport that little bit easier:
BOOK AHEAD – reserve your Airporter seats in advance. All passengers including children require a seat. Booking in advance guarantees your seat. This goes for everything not only Airporter. Whether you’re camping or staying in hotels, it pays to book ahead. Spontaneity doesn’t pay off if you are travelling with tired, hungry toddlers.
GIVE YOURSELF ENOUGH TIME – extra time is vital when travelling with children. It reduces stress and makes the whole experience more leisurely. For holiday flights, most airlines recommend 2 hours in the airport before your flight. It’s important you also choose the correct Airporter service to meet your flight.
We advise you take into consideration roadworks, traffic and weather as you would if you were to drive to the airport. Follow Airporter on Facebook and Twitter to receive relevant traffic & travel updates.
PLAN – Plan, plan and plan some more! Be prepared, you can never have enough wipes, tissues, snacks, change of clothes, medicine – cover every eventuality. See our FAQs if you have any questions about our service.
GAMES/IPAD/BOOKS – have lots of distractions planned. An iPad or tablet is a great idea – load it with games, movies and apps. Bubblebum has a great app available for both Apple and Android. Investing in a pair of headphones is also a good idea which can be purchased here at our HQ.
SMILE – even though it can be stressful remember you’re heading on holiday. A little bit of humour can help ease the tension and will rub off on your children and other passengers. You’ll be there before you know it!
