We are so excited to finally introduce the new Airside Andy kids play area, which opened last month in London City Airport. Located in the Western Pier of the airport, this area is designed for families travelling with children. We know it can be a bit of a nightmare running around the airport with overexcited children in tow- so here is the answer to your problems.
Peter Le Masurier, Co-founder, says “The Airside Andy brand was born from an airport; it is in our character’s DNA. It is therefore fitting that we are now sharing this journey with children in the airport. It is like Andy and his team of fun characters are coming home!”
The star feature of this space is, of course, the Airside Andy play-tech pod; this contains two tablets which are loaded with 21 games each, including the Airside Andy game itself. The play-tech pods are also currently situated in Manchester and Newcastle airports, although LCY sees the first ever dedicated, and fully branded, Airside Andy Play Area.
Other features of the Airside Andy children’s play area includes an interactive colouring wall, a runway, and a TV playing a loop of well-known kid’s content. A fun seating area makes it the perfect area for kids to play and relax in a safe and contained environment- what more could you want?!
Piers Croft, Head of Customer Experience and Security, said “Let your child’s imagination take flight in our all new play area located in the West Pier. London City Airport have teamed up with Airside Andy to create a one of a kind, fun, and interactive airport themed space designed to keep young travellers entertained while the adults make any last minute preparations. We look forward to travelling families enjoying a greater experience when using London City Airport.”
Le Masurier added “I am thrilled to be working with such a positive team as LCY. All the airport staff have been so kind and helpful to us and we hope this will be the first of many children’s areas within the airport. Children’s airport entertainment areas haven’t always been fun in the past, and we have created a unique space where children can play and have fun.”
