Children are a game changer. The things you have always done and taken advantage in the past might no longer be possible. In addition, when you are doing something you’ll have to think for your children, no matter how old they are!
This can put many people off flying with children but it is not just possible, it can actually be fun. You simply need to prepare yourself first!
Whether flying with children or not it is always a good idea to confirm the flight times are still the same. Simply give them a call the day before to check.
It’s now common for airlines to allow you to print your boarding passes at home. You can do this to save time and hassle at the airport.
When flying with children this can be a lifesaver; no long queues to keep them amused in.
It’s best to let children know what to expect from the airport and particularly the security before you leave home.
This will help the process go smoothly. You don’t need your child joking about explosive devices.
Your child won’t need a car seat on the plane and you can rent them the other side. So why give yourself the unnecessary hassle of trying to carry it with you? You can easily rent one at the other end if it’s needed.
When flying with children it’s tempting to pack everything, just in case! However, you need to consider how you will move all the suitcases, especially if you are left alone with the children at any point.
It’s also very important to check your baggage weight and size. This will help to ensure you are within the limits and don’t become stressed at carrying excess luggage and the charges that go with it!
You’ll need to have a range of toys with you which are appropriate for the age of your child. This will help them to keep busy while waiting to take off and during the flight.
When flying with children its best to let them have one toy at a time; it will help them to last for the whole of the flight!
Don’t forget to warn your children that they cannot take more than 3 ounces of a liquid on the plane with you.
Finally, if you’re flying with children or babies that have special dietary needs you need to make sure you have enough food to keep them happy for the whole flight.
