Glasgow Airport: Travelling With Children

by Jemma Fletcher (follow)
Travelling with children can be challenging, but if you're prepared, it's possible for the journey to be pleasant and enjoyable.

First port of call - Glasgow Airport. If you can keep your little ones happy here, that's one step closer to getting to your destination without pulling out your hair!



Most of the restaurants and bars located at Glasgow Airport offer high chairs and children’s menus on request, and any of the catering outlets will be pleased to provide hot water for the heating of baby food/milk.

Other necessities such as nappies, formula milk and wipes can be purchased from Boots and if you forgot to bring colouring or activity books, you can purchase them from WHSmith.

To keep the kids occuiped (tire them out), a children's play area is located after security on the international pier near WHSmith. Puzzle tables can also be found at various locations throughout the terminal building.

Babycare facilities are available in the following areas:

Before security in the main check-in hall
On the first floor (towards the rear of the foodcourt)
In the T2 check-in hall
After security on the first floor
Next to the Beardmore Bar and Tennents Bar
Next to the British Airways lounge
At gates 1-3 and 10-11

Important to note:

Most flights leaving the UK allow an adult to hold a child of up to 2 years of age on their lap, normally free of charge.

However, the unexpected turbulence can sometimes mean the child is not as safe as he/she would be if he/she was securely strapped in. Each airline has their own rules so to find out more, please consult the airline directly.

For more information about childcare facilities at Glasgow Airport, take a look at the Glasgow Airport Guide.
