Air New Zealand announces the creation of the latest novelty in the world of airlines – a personal attendant. The company informs that the new offer for its passengers – Airband – will provide assistance to newborns, children and their parents traveling alone or together.
Airband, wristbands that are issued at check-in before departure, will be used to identify children whose parents have decided to use the Airline’s services. The Airband Support service guarantees that Air New Zealand service users will have exclusive access to a personal specialist who will help them complete the check-in procedure, board and transfer.
The use of Bluetooth technology allows parents to track the movement of their child around the airport during the transfer using mobile devices, which provides families with the greatest security.
Catherine Rockriff, Vice President of Air New Zealand, who led the development of the Airband project, said that this service will be eagerly accepted by travelers. “Air New Zealand is constantly looking for new ways to make travel as pleasant and comfortable as possible for its passengers. Airband makes the travel process safer and more convenient for families with children.”
The introduction of this service is scheduled for December 6, 2016. Support services in Acland, Wellington, Queenstown and Christchurch will initially become available. Later, the Air New Zealand team is considering expanding its services and offers in other cities.
