Turkish Airlines introduces new inflight toys to delight its youngest travelers
Due to recognition of possible harmful effects of plastic on both children and the environment, as from January 2018, the airline will completely revamp its selection of inflight toys, which are now made from all-natural materials. The new toys, especially designed for Turkish Airlines, recognize the need to provide young travelers between 3 and 12 with additional entertainment while inflight. The toy sets give children this opportunity, while simultaneously introducing them to the concept of endangered species. Through play, Turkish Airlines, in conjunction with the World Wildlife Fund of Turkey, hopes to instill an appreciation of animal protection among our children—those who will inherit the world and will be responsible for its care. The stuffed toys are created from cotton, and the wooden parts are manufactured according to the sustainability rules set by the Forest Stewardship Council. In this case, the global carrier has worked with the toy industry to develop items that promote sustainability and better health, while at the same time increasing wildlife awareness for its youngest guests.
