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 Europe to give our younger passengers a chance to read some well-known books over the summer.
We all know travelling with children can be a little stressful, particularly when trying to keep them entertained during the holidays. That’s why we’ve decided to bring some fun to summer travel 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 we have some great discounts on our fabulous children’s titles.
BBC Radio 1 DJ Greg James and his on-air pal Chris Smith are the new faces of our new Flybrary campaign which will now be on all flights across the network from July.
The cheeky duo’s new book Kid Normal will be on board alongside classics such as The Jungle Book, Alice in Wonderland, The Secret Garden, Peter Pan and many more.
“Flying is the perfect time to read a book,” says Greg James. “There’s no distraction.”
Kid Normal follows the adventures of a hapless kid called Murph, who following a parental mix up, starts late in the term for superheroes. He’s the only one without any superpowers, which is, awkward.
But when a supervillain attacks, it turns out Murph’s everyday strengths of friendliness, kindness and curiosity save the day.
Look out for a copy in the middle pocket of your seatback.
Look out for these favourites on board:
