Korean Air rail discounts; Cathay’s extra miles; Air France kids treats

Korean Air rail discounts

In cooperation with Keikyu Corp., Korean Air is holding a seasonal campaign through Feb. 28.

Estimating that demand for travel between Japan and South Korea will increase in the coming holiday season through the Chinese New Year, special discount rail tickets from Tokyo’s Haneda airport to Shinagawa or Yokohama stations will be offered to travelers flying Korean Air from South Korea (any destination) to Haneda, no matter if it’s a round trip or one way.

The Keikyu Line is convenient for downtown Tokyo; it takes 12 minutes from the airport to Shinagawa Station and 27 minutes to Yokohama Station.

Customers who present proof of travel on Korean Air during the campaign period to the Keikyu Tourist Information Center on the second floor of Haneda’s international terminal station can purchase two tickets at ¥600 per person (¥300 per child), a saving of up to ¥280.

Air France treats for kids

In line with the renewal of its tableware for in-flight meals, Air France has redesigned the serving items for children under the age of 12.

Every year, 2.7 million children travel on the airline, including 365,000 unaccompanied minors and 490,000 babies.

For children, Catalan designer Eugeni Quitllet has created modern, colorful and eco-designed tableware. The carefully organized tray includes fun, plane-shaped cutlery, and a “cool box” with jam, a chocolate bar, butter and orange juice.

On the special kids menu, the airline offers up to three organic products (with French and European certification) designed to appeal to babies and young children.

The youngest passengers receive privileged service and can enjoy their meal before all the other passengers. In this way, parents, hopefully, can have their food in peace afterward.

To entertain younger passengers, there are new games kits (coloring books, bracelets, pilots’ wings, etc.) specially designed for children. For babies and toddlers, Air France offers bibs and cuddly toys during the flight.
