More and more people are going on holiday abroad with their babies and toddlers, but experts say that young children, restrained with a lap belt only or held in their parents’ arms, are the most unsafe passengers on the plane.

Flight safety experts encourage parents to take the highest safety measures and use an approved car seat to restrain the child throughout the flight.

Now approved by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration), the Doona car seat is the ideal solution for air travel. 

Doona’s integrated wheels makes the whole airport experience more convenient and less strenuous, as you don’t have to carry it. Your car seat can be pushed from the car, through checking in, during duty free shopping, to departures, through to the boarding gate and finally straight on to the plane.

Doona costs £299 and is available from Toys R Us, Mamas & Papas, Argos, Halfords and
