Following Ryanair’s announcement of plans to increase fees for checked in baggage on the airline, Bubblebum, the award winning manufacturer of an inflatable car booster seat, have today hit out at the airline for threatening children’s safety on roads.
Dublin, Ireland, December 13, 2011 -- Following Ryanair’s announcement of plans to increase fees for checked in baggage on the airline, Bubblebum, the award winning manufacturer of an inflatable car booster seat, have today hit out at the airline for threatening children’s safety on roads. The increased charges means that parents could now pay up to fifty euro to carry a car seat on the airline.
A spokesperson for BubbleBum said “While our booster seat can solve the problem for booster age children, these hikes in cost are a major problem for parents with children under the age of four. 50% of the car seats booked through car rental firms are unavailable at the point of pick while 50% of those that are available are unsuitable. This leaves a staggering 75% of children travelling without the correct restraint.
Children are at least 59% safer when using the correct restraint. This is a moral issue which should be brought to the attention of Ryanair who are creating the potential for significantly reducing the safety of children on the roads while travelling here and abroad.”
In retaliation against the inflated charges, Bubblebum have signed a last minute deal with Heatons to help parents avoid these extortionate costs. This fully certified seat, weighing in at little over 1lb, can be easily inflated for use and deflated for storage in hand baggage.
BubbleBum, the global award winning portable foldable car booster seat for children aged 4-11, is the brain child of mother of two, Grainne Kelly. Bubblebum booster seats are available throughout Heatons nationwide from this week. RRP €34.99 or through www.bubblebum.co.uk.
