Flying with Children

Flying with children is an adventure that you can embrace. We will inform you on everything you need to know about it.


Travel preparations

Here are some tips for you how to pack your children's suitcase properly. So you will not miss important things for the best time of the year. 

The following items are allowed in the carry-on bag:

  • travel documents
  • a travel pharmacy for children
  • the favourite toy
  • a blanket
  • pacifiers and feeding bottles
  • diapers and changing rompers/pants
  • toys and drawing utensils 
  • snacks (if you are carrying baby food, please present it to the security officer at the check point)

What else is allowed in carry-on baggage?


Evening-Before Check-In

The Evening-Before Check-In is offered by some Airlines. Please ask your Airline for further information to this Service at the Hannover Airport.

Children traveling alone

Let's get the adventure started: most airlines provide their own care service for children who are traveling alone. Thus children from the age of 5 can fly without their parents. 

Uninterrupted attendance

Your children are in good hands during the flight. The cabin crew will take them to their seat and attend to them throughout the flight. After landing, your children will be accompanied until met by the collecting person. 

Attendance and Entertainment

Time will fly by: the airline staff will distract your child with playing areas, little guided tours and explanations on aviation. Some airlines give access to their lounges.

Contact your airline in good time ahead

Please contact your airline or travel agent for further information in good time prior to the flight.
