Airline operator Lufthansa has installed two ‘Bedtime Stories’ kiosks at the boarding gates of Munich and Frankfurt airports in Germany. Each installation functions as a moon-shaped mobile recording studio where parents can choose a bedtime story, record themselves reading it, and send then it to their children at home via e-mail or text message. The children then click on a link that directs them to the microsite.
Thanks to the support of renowned publishing companies, parents will have a large selection of popular children’s books to choose from. If time is short at the gate, there are pre-recorded stories to choose from, which can be sent home as audio books. Every recording can be personalized further with individually written goodnight wishes and a photo on the cover. The booths will be available until the end of 2015.
Alexander Schlaubitz, head of marketing at Lufthansa, said, “Traveling is always an emotional experience. We want to make every passenger feel as though they are in good hands. The new Bedtime Stories installation continues the series of innovative and surprising ideas for our passengers.”
