Parents traveling with infants aboard long-haul Air France flights in La Première, business and premium economy class have a gift awaiting them: a cute penguin with some baby amenities stashed inside. (Air France’s previous baby gift was in the shape of a fox, but we think this penguin is much cuter!) All infants up to 24 months flying in the above-mentioned cabin classes will receive this memento.

The penguin itself is a cuddly toy made from plush fabric that can be used at home once the flight is over. Inside, the kit offers practical items like baby wipes and Nivea moisturizing face and body cream, a diaper, plastic bib and adapted spoon.

Your child won’t receive the penguin if you’re flying Air France economy class, but you can still avail yourself of baby bottles, snuggly toys, bibs and diapers. Just ring the cabin crew and make your request. The airline also offers special kid-friendly meals and its lounge at Charles de Gaulle even includes a children’s play area.

Air France isn’t the only airline to offer special amenities and age-appropriate meals for infants and children. Check out the most family-friendly international carriers for a rundown on what other airlines provide your kids while in the air.
