Tips for Flying with Kids

I have always enjoyed air travel. I especially love the feeling of adventure (& the little meals & movies).  I am going to share with you, my tips for flying with kids, so that air travel can still be fun.  Granted, it’s not the same as flying pre-kids, but it doesn’t have to be stressful. The whole family can enjoy the flight!


We recently returned from a wonderful vacation to the U.S. The flight time from Ireland to NYC is 7 & 1/2 hours. The return flight is around 6 hours.  I have three kids aged 8, 5 & 2.  Are you doing the math?


3 Kids x Many Hours in a Confined Space = Potential Disaster Situation

Happily, we had a fantastic flight – both ways!  The kiddies were so happy! And that in turn makes everyone happy!
