Kinderling takes off with new radio channels on Qantas

Kinderling News & Features

Kinderling Kids Radio and Qantas are delighted to announce three new exclusive in-flight radio channels, created for the airline’s youngest (and most precious) passengers. 

Watch your host Groovy Ruby announce our new programs...

Ready, Jet, Go!

Hosted by popular children’s entertainer Groovy Ruby, Ready, Jet, Go! will take kids on a supersonic adventure with awesome songs, jokes, activities and stories. It's perfect to keep young kids entertained in the air! They’ll recognise some of Australia’s top artists including Angie Who, Benny Time, Big Block Singsong and more. 

Settle Petal

Perfect for calming nerves or settling down once you’re into the flight, it’s filled with gentle tunes to create the ultimate headphone chill-zone for kids. Featuring The Muppets, Johnny Cash, Taron Egerton, Justine Clarke and more!

Our Managing Director Lorna Clarkson (aka. DJ Lorna) says it’s perfectly normal for children to get anxious or over-excited when they get on a plane, especially if it’s their first flight. 

“That can become stressful for all involved so we created Settle Petal to help soothe frayed nerves – both young and old!” 

Sleepy Soundtrack

This is the ideal playlist for anyone wanting to get some shut eye on a flight. Sleepy Soundtrack plays gentle ambient tunes to help you or your little ones drift into sweet dreams. It features Gentleforce, Max Richter, Finding Dory and more. 

“We created these three channels for Qantas so that the youngest flyers can have something to occupy their minds, calm their nerves and help them get to sleep in what is often a completely alien environment,” Lorna says. “We also created them to help give parents a well-earned break!” 

Kinderling Kids Radio is available on selected Qantas domestic and international routes now.
