Things to Know When Flying With Kids In Tow

If you have young children, flying has likely taken on a whole new meaning and fun probably isn't a word that springs to mind!

Flying with little ones can be somewhat bearable though if you're properly prepared. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  1. Call Ahead - Get details on seat selection, strollers and car seats. Reserve the bulkhead seats if you're traveling with an infant and ask for a cot.

  2. Extra Extra!! - Bring extra snacks, crayons and toys. Put diapers and wipes in a separate bag so you won't have to lug your entire backpack to the bathroom.

  3. Get a Move On! - Keep your kids moving before the flight to help them cope with the confined space onboard. They'll burn up energy which will stop them from kicking the seat in front of you.

  4. Fasten Your Seatbelts - Have a few items handy in case there's turbulence and you can't access the overhead compartment and always have a drink ready to help relieve their ear pressure.

It always takes longer to do anything with kids so make sure to allow lots of extra time. Although it seems like you'll have an eternity at the airport, activities such as check-in, snack time and bathroom breaks will quickly eat up your time but if you're properly prepared, you'll be able to relax and enjoy a smooth flight!
