Start you family vacation relaxed at the airport munich. Benefit from numerous services, that make it easy to travel with your kids. Of course, you can rely on professional assistance if your child is travelling on its own.
When flying with children, it is a good idea to have the following items in your hand luggage:
Any baby food and medication needed by you or your child during the trip can be carried in your hand luggage.
Our suggestion: Keep the containers within easy reach, as you will have to present them at security screening.
In Terminal 2 you can take your own buggy or pram with you as far as the aircraft door.
In Terminal 1, prams must be handed in at the bulky luggage counter. If you are travelling with a stroller or buggy, you can hand it over at the check-in desk like a regular baggage item.
Our suggestion: Immediately after the Terminal 1 security checkpoint, you can borrow a buggy free of charge.
You can hand in child car seats as bulky luggage. With some
airlines, you can also use car seats as a restraint system in the aircraft. Please contact your airline in advance for more information.
Remember: A travel document is required for every person travelling. The type of document depends on the destination. To find out whether a passport, child ID card or personal identity card is required, contact the embassy or consulate of the destination country.
If your minor children are travelling with relatives or friends, remember that documented permission is required from all parents or legal guardians. That also applies if only one of two legal guardians is making the trip.
The easiest solution is to have a written declaration of consent on hand with the signatures of all legal guardians. It should state the last name, first name and date of birth of the minor child, the purpose and destination of the trip, accompanying persons, duration of the trip and the names and contact details of all parents / legal guardians. The German Federal Police performs checks to safeguard against child abductions, including parental abductions.
