Airside Andy Play Pods check-in to Newcastle and Manchester Airports – April 2015

If you’re travelling with kids this Summer, make sure to head on over to Swissport’s Aspire lounges in Manchester Airport Terminal 1 and Newcastle Airport Terminal 1. Both lounges have been kitted out with spectacular Airside Andy play pods for young children.

These innovative new pods, bought to you courtesy of Airside Andy and Swissport, are designed to keep children entertained during airside waiting times and see the introduction of child friendly tablets to the lounge, preloaded with Airside Andy fun and adventure along with other mainstream games. Housed in a child friendly baggage carousel, the tablets protrude from real suitcases on bendy poles creating a unique and fun play area for children.

Swissport has opened its lounge doors to Airside Andy in recognition of the need to create a space for children that acknowledges and caters for how children’s play has changed and developed. Together they plan to roll-out the pods in airport lounges nationwide.

Peter Le Masurier, Co-Creator of Airside Andy said:

“Gone are the days when we can simply occupy children with colouring books and I-Spy. Our play pods offer kids safe and educational engagement in the very latest tablet technology as kids amenities develop and innovate in keeping with modern times”

Airside Andy play pods come fully equipped with 2 interactive tablets, child-proofed and fully loaded with a host of games, with Airside Andy’s new massively multiplayer online game soon to be released too.

On the upcoming Airside Andy game, Peter Le Masurier added:

“Airside Andy, the game, has been created with an incredible amount of care and attention to fun, safe, educational play, that it will likely become a firm favourite with children and parents alike. We can’t wait to launch!”

Shaun Weston, Travel Services Director of Swissport said:

“Our collaboration with Airside Andy gives those travelling with children a great reason to look at using a lounge for any future travel”

All Swissport lounges are open to all travellers, irrespective of airline or class of travel. To book or for more information, visit www.executivelounges.com/aspire
