Your hands will be full when travelling with children so before you start out on your journey, make sure 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 carry buggies to the aircraft or pack them in your checked-in baggage. 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.
