Get your fairy-bread fix at Qantas’ kids foodie pop-up

Just in time for the school holidays, Qantas is trialling a new ‘Kids Quisine’ buffet in its Sydney International Business Lounge.

The new ‘pop-up’ station features a range of healthy and tasty treats and has been designed to appeal to the palate of the next generation of frequent flyers.

We’re a little bit upset by this because personally, we’d love to get our hands on some of this fairy bread but we’re most likely past the age cut off.

The pop-up food station is currently being trialled in Sydney and, if popular, Qantas will consider extending it to other lounges for the October school holidays.

Helen Gray, Qantas Head of Food and Beverage, said school holidays are an exciting time for young flyers and the Kids Quisine pop-up is designed to make their journey even more fun.

“We want the lounge experience to be as enjoyable for children as it is for their parents so a dedicated kids’ food station will help get their holidays off to an exciting start,” Gray said.

The Kids Quisine station features a DIY-design cupcake and muffin stand where children can decorate their cupcake or muffin with a range of toppings including vanilla icing, a selection of lollies and marshmallows.

Other snack options include fruit skewers, veggie jars, pinwheel sandwiches, kid-sized cold-pressed juice and for something more substantial, gluten-free pasta with tomato sauce and cheese or sausage rolls.

Kids Quisine is open from 11 am daily until 21 July 2018.

There is also a Joey Club Kids Zone in Sydney’s Qantas International Business Lounge, with books, toys and activities.

The Qantas Joey Club helps keep young flyers entertained before they fly and onboard, and rewards them with Qantas Points when they travel.

Children aged 12 and under can join for free. Find out more about the Joey Club here.
