The advice noted that your hands will be full taking care of your child, they also gave the following advice:
- You carry all your travel documents in one easily reached place.
- Make sure your hand baggage meets security requirements before you leave home and work out whether you need to take buggies to the aircraft or check them in
- Remember to keep everything that your baby needs on the flight in your carry-on luggage, ensuring that it is always to hand, bearing in mind the EU Aviation Security Regulations.
The information page also reminds parents to allow for extra time when travelling with children and notes where all baby changing facilities and feeding rooms are in both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.
Dublin Airport also offers the Stork Exchange which allows parents to hire equipment, which is extremely handy if your buggy doesn’t fold in the right way for the flight.
It allows parents to hire car seats, prams, strollers and cradles as well as install anything needed and can be delivered to and collected from Terminals 1 and 2.
