30 January 2020 — Hong Kong. FORMIA, the international guest amenity and hospitality specialist, is proud to partner with Aircalin to introduce a new set of amenity kits for the New Caledonian airline’s younger passengers. The exclusive kit introduces children to New Caledonia’s unique wildlife in an entertaining and educational way, with activities designed to amuse kids from 3 to 8 years old during the flight. Each kit is made up of a colourful drawstring bag, an activity book with puzzles, games and fun facts about the animals of New Caledonia, crayons and a card game that can be played with the whole family both during the flight and afterwards.
Every element of the children’s kit has an individual use post flight, so the little ones have something to entertain them not only in the air, but also once they have arrived at their destination and when back at home.
“We are delighted to partner with Aircalin on their new children’s kits, which have been curated to deliver products to excite and entertain the younger passengers. The new kits feature thoughtfully designed elements that nicely mix education with culture, providing children with a unique and memorable product experience”, commented Philipp Wendschuh, FORMIA’s Chief Commercial Officer.
“Aircalin is proud to propose to all its young passengers this new kids’ kit showcasing the New Caledonia rich biodiversity. As the New Caledonia International carrier, we are always proud to promote the beauty of our country and to make it discoverable to youngsters in a fun and educational way. For this new kit, we wanted to highlight the forest animals with the emblematic cagou, endemic and iconic bird of New Caledonia, but also the bat, the parakeet, the deer and the gecko. Practical, fun, with a strong Caledonian inspiration was our motto to develop this kit in partnership with Formia” commented William Le Grand Chief Commercial Officer.
