Design with Families in Mind

Feb. 22, 2018

I recently went with my family to Disney World for a fun-filled vacation. Of course I travel all the time but this was the first time that my kids were getting to travel. It put going to the airport in a different perspective for me. As a business traveler at the airport I almost go into an automatic mode where I just know what I am required to do. With kids, the rules change but they don’t tell you those rules in advance which could cause confusion and line back-ups.

Now my kids are old enough that I didn’t have a stroller and their carry on was a small backpack strictly for electronics on the plane, so my situation went relatively smoothly…but it got me to think. How is it that with all the streamlining of processes we missed the one about parents traveling with small children and the vast amount of accessories that comes with a small child, add more items for every child and it could seem daunting to even attempt air travel with kids at all.

What is the solution? I don’t know, but I am sure there is one out there. What are you doing to streamline processes at your airport?

As always, thank you for reading
