Is it a book? Is it a plane? No, it’s our Flybrary!
We’ve stocked every flight around Europe with a range of wonderful children’s books to give our younger passengers a chance for their imaginations to fly this summer.
Imagine where a good book could take you!
Fantastic stories and expansive ideas feed a child’s imagination and open up the world and its wonderful possibilities. So, what better time to get stuck into a new reading adventure than on a summer holiday?
We all know travelling with kids can sometimes be a little stressful, particularly when trying to keep them entertained. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the friendly folks at HarperCollins Children’s Books to inject some sun into summer travels with our Flybrary in the sky!
Just look in the middle seatback pocket to find one of our favourite books for your children to enjoy.
If you’d like to buy your own copy or check out what other literary adventures you could go on, make the most of a 20% discount on selected HarperCollins Children’s Books.
Our Flybrarian: Katie Piper
Television presenter and philanthropist Katie Piper is our Flybrarian this year! This time around, we’re going even bigger and better with more than 60,000 books on board all our 300 aircraft from July 15!
Katie is a mum to Belle (age 5) and Penelope (age 18 months) and knows first hand how hard it is as a busy parent to read to kids every night.
“Which is why holidays offer the perfect opportunity to make time for sharing stories with your little ones,” she said.
“I love it when Belle and I get stuck into a book together so when easyJet told me they were going to be providing Flybraries on tens of thousands of flights this Summer, I was delighted to get involved. I hope that families across Europe will be entertained on board as they get hooked on a book together.”

Summer reading and writing
We’ve teamed up with the National Literacy Trust to create some fun activities and games for families to do together during over summer holidays to help children keep practising their reading, writing, drawing and communication skills.
