The main concern for almost all parents is to travel with their kids and not disturbing other passengers, especially if the kids are crying or being wriggly during the entire trip. Luckily, there are some basic advices you can follow to avoid or deal successfully with these unpleasant situations.

The first step to streamline your travel experience is the avoidance. Nobody looks forward to sit for hours in the plane, especially not your children so it is best to prepare well. To keep them seated and quiet you can take children books, snacks or toys to hold them busy for hours. A hungry and a tired child can be unhappy, so the snacks will give them enough energy to get through the flight without a meltdown and the books will keep them busy for the rest of the flight. Be aware of possible delays and tired children. If you have night flights leave them to sleep on the plain but don’t forget to fasten the seatbelt.

Make sure you get to the airport early. Getting through the airport security can be a time consuming process so you won’t be able to arrive on time for your plane if your documents and bags are not prepared well. Be sure to print the boarding passes and keep them in your carryon together with your mobile phone and a map of your final destination. If traveling internationally don’t forget to get your baby a passport.

Getting to the airport with your children can also be a challenge. If you are taking your baby with you don’t forget to bring transport sit in your car or simply use taxi and airport parking service to pick you up and drive you to the right terminal. You also need to confirm if the airport service can provide you a car seat that will fit for your child.

Moreover, managing all this is to predict every situation in advance. Not that you have an extra person to take care for don’t let other passengers interrupt you. If the line is long try to stay close to your children all the way to the airport gate. Don’t check the small stroller and take it with you for outside the place if there is enough space. Make sure you check luggage restriction for you and the baby because some companies will allow you to carry child items with you as a part of a baggage allowance. The most important tip is to make a list and don’t pack heavy. It may take forever to bring everything or second to leaving something behind so a list will help you to stay focused and put everything into the bag.

There are different destinations and some of them can be quite long and boring. If possible explain to your child where you will go and what will happen in the plane, this will save them for unseen and unexpected events. Some of the airport companies are offering family lines so there would be an extra space for the young family members. If possible, assign with such company and be convenient about the expectations and the additional services you are allowed to use.

If the flight has some delays you can let your children play in front of you without disturbing other passengers around. If they are old enough, you can engage them by telling stories about the destination and the thing they will do there.

Sydney Airport Company wants your holiday to be as pleasant as possible from the very start. In case you didn’t know we are a family friendly company who is offering plenty of services and advices on how to travel with children.
