Everybody wins when kids are happy on family trips, so I love it when hotels and airlines go above and beyond to cater to young travelers.  Recently Air Canada introduced a brand new program just for kids ages 2-12 living in the United States or Canada called Altitude Skyriders.

 

When your kiddo joins Skyriders they get a starter kit that includes an introduction letter, a luggage tag, and a logbook to keep a record of each one of their flights.

That’s pretty cool, but if I was a kid I could have totally seen myself getting into the spirit of collecting the different badges available for visiting different cities or regions! It’s like a stamp collection for traveling kids!

This program doesn’t seem to offer any perks with monetary value, but if your kid regularly flies on Air Canada operated flights it could be a cool way to commemorate and record those trips. You will need their Aeroplan number handy in order to join Skyriders.

I’d love to hear if you have already seen this program in action!

Thanks to friend and fellow traveling parent @rehoult for the Skyriders info!

  1. I can see this degenerating into kids begging to be flown to places to get the badges… nice marketing for Air Canada.

  2. Thanks for this – we are taking air canada later this year and my 3 year old niece would love this! I Never would have known about it!
