EL AL ISRAEL AIRLINES OFFERS UNIQUE IN-FLIGHT FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT THIS SUMMER
Plus Special Savings and Meals for Children
NEW YORK – June 30, 2014 – With Israel experiencing an all-time high in tourism, EL AL Israel Airlines is making it more affordable and fun for the entire family to travel this summer. EL AL has revamped the popular ELALCHIK program, which offers children a selection of amusing in-flight entertainment. All these activities will take place on select flights from Tel Aviv to New York during the months of July and August, creating a fun-filled environment for both parents and children.
Upon boarding an ELALCHIK flight at Ben Gurion International Airport in Israel, EL AL passengers will be greeted by a whimsical clown who will entertain during the flight and provide a variety of in-flight activities including cockpit tours, games, comic books and more. The clown will also tell stories, share riddles and assign children enjoyable tasks. The first 50,000 children on an EL ALCHIK flight will receive an activity case with coloring books and pencils as well as puzzles that are all branded by the beloved Israeli children’s TV character, Little Michal.
In addition, the clown and cabin crew will appoint “Dayalchiks,” young flight attendants adorned in Little Michal aprons, to assist with distributing goodies to other children. Ten children who complete the tasks will be invited to visit the cockpit and receive a souvenir personalized by the Captain. Children can also enjoy EL AL branded board games, such as “Chutes and Ladders” and “Around the World,” as well as watch special Little Michal videos on an in-flight entertainment channel.
From the USA, special EL AL family fares are available on select flights for children between the ages of two and 12 years old travelling with their parents. In addition to the regular menu offered on any flight, child-friendly meals can be ordered at least 48 hours prior to departure by calling EL AL at 800-223-6700 or any travel agent. The special lunch or dinner children’s menu includes such offerings as chicken nuggets, corn and fresh fruit. For breakfast, pancakes with syrup and fresh fruit are served.
