Traveling with Children


Traveling with children? Rest assured. We understand that traveling with children can be challenging and we want to help make the trip a comfortable one for your child, and a peaceful one for you. 

We recommend checking with your airline for detailed information regarding traveling with children and infants such as safety seat requirements, strollers, etc.

Tips for Traveling with Children

Explain the Travel Process
If your child knows what to expect, their travel experience will be much smoother.

Be Prepared for Security Screening
Familiarize yourself with TSA’s special screening procedures for children so you can be prepared for a quick trip through security.

Arrive Early
Check-in early to reserve a window seat. Watching the world from above is fascinating for a child and will help to keep them entertained during your flight.

Prepare Your Child for Takeoff and Landing
Children’s ears are more sensitive to changes in pressure than adult ears. To prevent discomfort during take off and landing, it may be helpful to give infants a bottle and children some gum.

Don’t Forget the Essentials
While airlines may offer supplies and entertainment onboard, your child will enjoy the flight even more if you remember to bring some toys, books, games, wet wipes, and other necessities.
