Lost Items Airports

We’ve all had that sinking feeling when you step on the plane, or in the taxi departing the airport where you realise there’s something missing. There’s nothing worse than knowing there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it for the time being!

Whether it’s a suitcase, an iPhone, your favourite book, your wallet or your sunglasses, it’s all extremely frustrating. Most airports have a lost and found system in place, and Heathrow Airport use missingx.com, where you can log in and register something as lost, or see if it has been found at the airport.

We had a skim through the items there and found some pretty great things that people have left behind at Heathrow Airport! Read More

Sun goes by the sea in Playas De Las Americas Sunset in Tenerife

The land of eternal spring – more commonly known as Tenerife, is the largest of the seven Canary Islands and has pleasant weather all year round; one of the many reasons why so many people flock to the island each year! I visited the Island for the first time back in June and had a truly amazing experience. I was shocked however to learn that it was only recently the Island had undergone a massive transformation and that not so long ago, Tenerife was associated with corruption and debauchery. It is clear to see that the island has come a long way since then and today it is home to some of the most picturesque beaches, luxurious hotels, jaw dropping landscapes and world class attractions; not to mention its fantastic nightlife.

Unaccompanied Minors

There are plenty of reasons for children to need to fly alone these days, from going to visit relatives abroad without parents, to logistics surrounding school terms finishing at different times.

From this month, headteachers now have the power to set their own holiday schedules for their schools, which could result in more schools having different term dates to each other; a problem for parents with children in different establishments!

This might result in an increase of children flying alone to join their family on holiday, or going out to stay with relatives or friends.

Of course, there are many other reasons for children needing to fly alone, so we’ve compiled the information you need to know before waving goodbye at the airport! Many airlines offer these services, from British Airways, to Lufthansa, to Qantas and ANA. KLM even have a dedicated lounge at Amsterdam Airport! Read More
