Virgin Australia's Kids' Entertainment Takes Flight

11 April 2015

Keeping kids entertained while flying can be a challenge. Long journeys with no entertainment are not always ideal for parents or fellow travellers. But thanks to Virgin Australia and Bound Round, new destination videos will keep the smallest of travellers entertained and enthused about their journey and destination.

Available on Virgin Australia's Watch section of the in-flight entertainment system via the wireless service and seatback screens, Bound Round is made by kids, for kids.

 

“Bound Round focuses on providing kids with relevant information and a hands-on learning experience to enhance the value of their holiday,” said Janeece Keller, founder and CEO of Bound Round.

“This deal with Virgin Australia means our content is now more readily accessible for kids while on their travel journey," Keller said.

"It helps involve them in the planning process and keeps them engaged during a traditionally more stressful time for parents – in transit.”

 Younger travellers on Virgin Australia can check in and check out their destination.

The Bound Round videos present educational travel content in a fun, engaging way that gets Virgin Australia's smallest travellers enthusiastic about their journey. Combining Bound Round content with the High Flyer Passport program, shows Virgin Australia is committed to delivering an engaging experience for young flyers.

 Enthusiasm is about to take off with Bound Round videos on Virgin Australia flights.

I’m a passionate traveller and a first class nomad wannabe. I have a love for the written word and enjoy sharing stories that inspire travel. I like ordinary but love extraordinary. I’ll dance and sing karaoke to anything 80’s, will drink hot tea even if 40 degrees, love food and have a wicked sweet tooth. Architecture excites me, the window seat thrills me and anything aviation enamours me. I’m a perpetual dreamer who lives by Saint Augustine’s wise words – “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”. My intention is to read War and Peace!
