Some interesting trends research from lastminute.com. It seems that young families are travelling more than ever if their stats on increases in infant bookings made through the site are to be believed.
The company says that infant bookings to Australia – with their parents presumably – have grown by 90% year on year. Those to Portugal are up by 28% , Spain 22% and the UAE 20%.
Overall, infant bookings are up by 20% in the past six months.
Mark Maddock, the company’s managing director for the UK and Ireland says, “It is clear that increasing numbers of parents are feeling confident about travelling with new babies and airlines are responding with services to match this demand. Some airlines will even warm baby milk for you and provide in-flight cots. Provision for babies does however vary from airline to airline so ensure you check what specific services they provide before travelling.”
