Sustainability in focus with new kids’ kits on Air Astana

In partnership with Watermark, Air Astana is launching a series of inflight children’s amenity kits designed to educate young passengers about the significance of sustainability. The kits will be onboard from February 2024.

Themed around the four elements – Earth, Wind, Water and Fire – each kit has been designed to engage children in an interactive learning experience, increasing environmental awareness during their travels with Air Astana and beyond.

The kits are separated into two age ranges – 3-6 years and 7-11 years.

From understanding renewable energy sources to embracing the principles of the ‘four R’s’ – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Repair – each kit offers a combination of entertainment and education covering a range of sustainability concepts.

Each bag and its contents are designed to be reused post-flight, are made from rPET and incorporate eco-friendly elements, such as HDPE recyclable water bottles and compostable packaging.

“We are excited to partner with Watermark to offer these innovative
sustainability-inspired kids’ kits to our young passengers,” said Yekaterina Kuzmina, Manager In-flight and Ground Products at Air Astana.

“As an airline, we believe in responsible travel, and these kits are a fantastic way to engage and educate our youngest travellers about the importance of protecting our planet.”

Kenny Harmel, Managing Director at Watermark, said: “Our aim is not only to make air travel a fun and educational experience for children but also to provide onboard kits that serve a purpose and can be used again and again.”

The new range by Watermark aligns with Air Astana’s commitment to providing a sustainable and responsible travel experience for its passengers.;
