Here at Kooshy Kids, we're dedicated to making your family travels as comfortable and stress-free as possible. The above airlines have engaged with us through various channels, including verbal communication, email correspondence, direct messages, and online chats, to confirm their acceptance of the Kooshy Kids Kooshion when used according to their safety requirements.

Many of these airlines have detailed their safety criteria for using our product on their official websites. These safety guidelines are often in alignment with our recommended usage instructions. It's our pleasure to share that these airlines are integral to our Approved Airline Money Back Guarantee.

To assist you further, we recommend capturing a screenshot of this list found here, where the validity dates are listed is the product title of the document.

Airlines that have not approved any plane bed, hammock or foot rest devices:

The list provided below pertains to airlines that have not officially approved (and in some cases prohibited) the utilisation of the Kooshy Kids Kooshion and all other similar plane bed/footrest products. Therefore, the likelihood of being able to use the Kooshy Kids Kooshion during flights operated by these airlines is minimal. While there have been instances where the product's use was permitted by the crew on these airlines, it's important to note that such decisions are at the discretion of individual crew members.

Our ongoing efforts involve collaborating with all the mentioned airlines to encourage them to evaluate and consider the adoption of our product. This endeavor is driven by the fact that our product adheres to safety standards advocated by authoritative airline advisory bodies, including IATA and other aviation regulators.

Airlines that have not approved include:

  • Asiana Airlines
  • British Airways
  • Emirates
  • Fiji Airways
  • Jetstar Australia
  • Hawaiian Airlines
  • Lufthansa
  • Philipines Airlines (new)
  • Qantas
  • Qatar (new)
  • South African Airways

For a comprehensive list of accepting and non-accepting airlines, please click here, where you can find a detailed breakdown of the most recent success rates for each airline, as well as airlines where the decision to permit rests with the crew. Please note that only Approved Airlines are covered by our Approved Airline Guarantee.

To enhance the likelihood of a positive outcome, consider calling your airline and informing them of your intention to use the Kooshy Kids Kooshion during the flight. Specifically, mention that you plan to use the product when the seatbelt sign is off and that your child will be secured with a seatbelt while in their seat and while using the product and that it will only be used as per the recommended safety requirements as outlined by Kooshy Kids and other major airlines such as Singapore Airlines and Virgin.

By providing advance notice to the airline, you can ensure that they make a record in your booking, effectively informing the cabin crew of your intended use. This proactive step helps to streamline communication and ensures that everyone is on the same page when it's time to fly.

Moreover, this presents a favourable moment to verify your family's seating arrangement and make any necessary requests for tailored services, such as a kids meal etc, to enhance the comfort of your family's flight experience.

Your preparation and communication will contribute to a smoother and more enjoyable flying experience for you and your child.

Each bundle includes the Kooshy Kids Kooshion, Kooshy Kloud, and our convenient Battery Pump. With this comprehensive package, you'll have everything necessary to keep your child comfortable and entertained during flights, even on non-approved airlines. This bundle is partially popular where it is unclear whether the airline will allow the Kooshy Kids to be used, as the Kooshy Kloud can form an amazing back-up option. 

By opting for the Kooshy Kloud, or even better with the the Little Travels Bundle, you can travel with confidence, knowing that you have alternative options available to ensure your child's comfort, regardless of the airline's acceptance.
