FORMIA Announces Collaboration with Captain Kangal for Turkish Airlines’ Youngest Passengers

Complete with his aviator goggles, hat and flight jacket, Captain Kangol takes to the air with Turkish Airlines’ younger passengers.

FORMIA presents the Captain Kangal children’s amenity kit, featuring Turkish Airlines’ original children’s character. Representing the guardian dog of protection, the iconic character originates from the Sivas province of Turkey and is known for his loyalty and gentleness with small children.

Captain Kangal is sure to keep young passengers entertained for hours in the air. Each child will receive a plush toy created entirely from eco-friendly fabrics, fun and informative games and reading material, all in their own reusable canvas bag. The eco-friendly initiative is just the latest step following Turkish Airline’s sustainability drive: to leave a cleaner world for future generations to come.

The Captain Kangal eco-friendly toy for Turkish Airlines is another step in the right direction for the children’s amenities sector. It is important that FORMIA creates amenities that younger passengers value, enjoy and can learn from.”
