Cathay Pacific's young flyers try new Winnie the Pooh Kids' Kits
30 Jul 2001
Cathay Pacific Airways' new Winnie the Pooh Kids Kits were thoroughly investigated this week by two of the airline's younger passengers - three year old Roger, and his baby sister Flora. The pair were accompanied by their mother Cathay Pacific First Class Purser Jessie Ting. The new kits - packed with enough goodies to entertain kids on even the longest journeys - quickly got the children's full approval.

Roger said: "The Winnie the Pooh kits are full of great things like puzzles, and toys. And the bags are great too. When I go to my Grandfather's house to play the piano I will carry my books in them. And I really liked the Winnie the Pooh armbands too". His sister Flora was fascinated with the colouring book and Winnie the Pooh stickers.
Their mother said: "The see-through carrying bags were definitely a big hit with Roger. He likes to carry his own pillow and his own drink bottle with him wherever we are travelling, so he thinks they're going to be very useful. He loves going to the beach too, and the Just a Splash
themed bag is ideal for carrying his towel and trunks. We usually just go swimming at Shek O beach in Hong Kong, but we've often flown to Cebu in the Philippines, and also my family's home down in Malaysia."
Out of the eight different fun packs, four are for children aged three to six years, and four for children aged between seven and 12. Different packs are used for regional flights and long-haul flights to give children greater variety.
Cathay Pacific's Manager Product Sarah Blomfield said: "I think it is important for an airline to make its young flyers feel extra welcome. These new fun packs will help keep children entertained throughout their journeys -- which should be good news for them and of course for their parents. We hope that the Winnie the Pooh packs will help remind them of fun they have had on trips all around the world with Cathay Pacific."
Cathay Pacific has introduced a number of revolutionary new services for business travellers recently including inflight email and Intranet, but has never forgotten the importance of its younger passengers. Every seat on Cathay Pacific aircraft now has a personal television, and the StudioCX
inflight entertainment brand always features a great selection of children's cartoons on the Kidz
television channel. This month the programme includes Disney's The Fox and the Hound and Cinderella
