Hints & tips
For a stress-free airport experience
Give yourself plenty of time at the airport. Check-in and security can take a little longer when you’re travelling with children.
Calm your child
Reassure your child that they will get their precious items back once they’ve gone through security scanner.
Board on time
Get to the gate early so you can board first, calmly ahead of the rush to give you time to settle onboard.
Make it an adventure
At each stage of the journey explain what is happening, especially if they are flying for the first time.
Share the responsibility
If you are travelling with another adult, take turns in looking after the children and rest in between.
