If you always wonder what to do with the pram every time you fly, read on to find out all you need to know about travelling with a pram.
- Taking it right up to the plane
Many airports let you take the pram right up to the plane and then they put a tag on it and store it in the hold, free of charge. This is usually the most convenient option, but if you want you can also check the pram in at the check-in desks. Vueling, for example, lets you check in the pram free of charge.
Remember that if you take your pram right up to the gate, you'll have to put it through the scanner at security together with the rest of your hand luggage.
- Flight with stopover
If you have a connecting flight, your pram will be taken from one plane to another, just like all the rest of the luggage. But don't worry because many airports (especially the larger ones) let passengers borrow prams to use while they are waiting for their next flight. You can use it and take it to the gate. Some airports even have luggage trolleys with children's seats.
- Collecting the pram
Due to their size, prams don't usually fit on regular conveyor belts, so you normally have to collect it on the special luggage belt when you arrive. We advise you to ask the airport staff where to collect it.
In any case, before you fly, the best thing to do is to check with the airline in case there are any restrictions on flying with a pram.
