Thomson Airways, Britain’s third largest airline, is looking to trial children’s play areas on board its newest Dreamliner aircraft.
The novel concept was one of several ideas suggested by four-year-old Amber Winters, from Birmingham, the winner of the airline’s recent #Nameourplane competition. Children between the ages of four and 11 were asked to suggest a name for Thomson’s new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, as well as ways the airline could improve its services for young passengers.
Her suggestions included a kids’ area with bean bags and a reading corner at the back of the aircraft.
Amber, whose winning name for the aircraft was Pixie Dust, was joined by nine other finalists for an Ambassador Day event at Gatwick Airport this month, where they were given a chance to present all of their ideas to a panel of judges and a tour of the new Dreamliner by Thomson Airways pilot Stuart Gruber.
“All of our finalists had some fantastic ideas, so it was a really hard decision selecting our overall winner,” Mr Gruber said.
