As part of its drive to help passengers get the most out of their airport experience, Gatwick Airport has created special Children’s Play Areas in both terminals for this year’s Easter break getaway.

The recreational areas will be in place in the North and South terminals until 25th April, and Blackjack Promotions will be supplying face painters, entertainers and storytellers to enhance the young passengers’ experience of their passage through Gatwick.

To add to the excitement, the pLay area staff will be dressed in Alice in Wonderland themed costumes and will also be handing out colouring books and crayons to help keep young travellers entertained.

Sally Alington, managing director of Blackjack, said: “This is a really fun activity for us to run. Whilst we’re certainly not offering a crèche service, all our staff are fully trained and CRB checked so parents can be relaxed in the knowledge that their children are being entertained in safe hands.”
