Fantastic news! Virgin Australia has made an announcement today which further recognises the needs of families with a child with a disability. Virgin Australia now accepts select Approved Support Devices designed to provide additional postural support to infants and children.
From today, families will be able to travel with the following seating to make travel more comfortable for everyone –
The Carrot 3000 seat
The Firefly GoTo Seat
We know this will be welcomed by many families with a child who simply cannot sit in an airline seat without appropriate support. It’s a fantastic move forward in making travel more accessible for many.
Please remember you need to include this is in your booking so the airline is aware you are travelling with the seating.
If you already have a booking and wish to request this is added to your booking contact the Virgin Australia Guest Contact Centre on 136789.
