At the Airport

Travelling with pushchairs

Using your own pushchair

If you travel with your own pushchair, you can usually use it until boarding. Your pushchair is subject to security check, during which you will be asked to fold the pushchair and put it through the x-ray machine. At the gate, it is necessary to hand over the pushchair. The handling company’s staff will make sure it is safely stored in the baggage compartment or in other designated area of the plane. Specific conditions regarding the transport of pushchairs always depend on the particular air carrier and on the particular flight capacity.

Borrowing our pushchair for free

If you do not need to use your pushchair to get through the airport, you can check it in at the check-in counter and hand it over at the oversize baggage counter. You can then borrow one of your pushchairs for free – they can be found behind the passport checkpoint in Terminal 1, behind the security checkpoint in Terminal 2 and at many other points in both terminals. They are suitable for children up to 25 kg. You can use our pushchair throughout your whole time at the airport until you arrive at your gate.

Passport control – Terminal 1

If you depart from Terminal 1, you must go through passport control. When travelling with children under 15 years of age, it is not possible to use the EasyGo Gates for automated passport control. Therefore it is necessary that you go through the standard passport control that is carried out by police officers. If you travel with a pushchair, upon approaching the boarding pass validator, contact the security control officer present there.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask any information assistant in the passport control area for help.

Security control with children

Security control of children in pushchairs

If you get through the airport with your own pushchair, it must pass through security control. The folded pushchair will be screened by the x-ray machine. If the screening cannot be done due to the dimensions of the pushchair, some other form of control will be used.

Parents travelling with children in pushchairs departing from Terminal 2 can use a designated lane at security control. Upon arriving at the boarding pass control checkpoint, follow the pushchair sign.

Going through the security frame

In order to go through the security frame, await the instructions of the security control officer. Older children pass through the security frame on their own, younger children are allowed to be carried in arms.

There is no need to be afraid of going through the security frame when travelling during pregnancy. The security frame works as a metal detector and does not emit dangerous radiation. Nevertheless, mothers-to-be have the option to avoid passing through the security frame. If they choose to do so, some other form of control will be used.

Baby food

Although baby food necessary for the duration of the flight is allowed on board without limitations, is has to be declared and presented for x-ray screening outside the baggage.

Children travelling alone

Some air carriers offer accompaniment services for children who travel alone. The service can be booked with the air carrier, usually already when booking the flight. The child will be accompanied by an employee of the handling company until boarding the plane. After arriving at the final destination, the child will be again accompanied by the worker of the handling company until being collected by a responsible person designated in advance.

The age at which children can travel unaccompanied, as well as the conditions and charges for the provision of this service vary according to the air carrier.

 

 

After Arrival

Pushchairs

Using your own pushchair

After arrival of the flight, you will get your pushchair back either immediately after disembarking from the plane or later at the oversize baggage counter in the baggage reclaim area. The place and method of offloading your pushchair depends on the way it was checked-in and on the rules of your air carrier. Please check these conditions before your departure.

Borrowing our pushchair for free

Just as before your departure, you can borrow one of our pushchairs for free after your arrival to get through the airport. The pushchairs are located at many points in the arrival corridors in Terminal 1 and 2. You can use the pushchair to get around the airport until reaching the area in front of baggage reclaim, where you simply leave it.
