5 Airport Security Tips to Consider When Traveling with Kids

Airport security processes are a part of travel that many of us dread when traveling nationally or internationally. As the leading provider of limo service to and from Philadelphia airport, we’ve listed some tips for navigating through airport security when traveling with small children.

Arrive Early

Try to arrive early at the airport, especially when traveling with small children. During non-holiday seasons we recommend arriving two hours before a domestic flight, and three hours before an international flight. If it’s the peak holiday season, try and arrive even earlier than this to ensure you have enough time to get through security and passport control before your flight.

Take Advantage of the Family Screening Line

When traveling with a baby or young child, opt to travel using the Family Line at security. Don’t worry about skipping ahead of other passengers; taking this option will reduce the stress of your journey. Ask airport staff if such a line exists and if there’s a possibility that they may quickly wave you through.

Don’t Forget to Carry Identification for Everybody Traveling

When heading out of the country, it’s essential that your whole party, including babies, have valid passports. These documents can take up to six weeks to arrive, so try to plan. Even domestic flights may require identification for children, including birth certificates. Make sure you call your airline and check in advance if you are unsure.

Wear Appropriate Clothing

Clothing that contains metal buttons can cause havoc with security systems. Therefore, comfortable clothing with easily removable outerwear such as belts and shoes should be worn when traveling. Children under the age of 12 and adults over 75 years do not usually have to remove footwear.

Remember Your Liquid Limits

Wait until you clear security before you buy spirits, wine, or perfume. Carry on bags have a limit of 3.4 ounce sized bottles. Larger sized bottles can be packed in checked bags, but this increases the risk of breakage and spillage. Nobody wants all of their luggage to be soaked in alcohol or perfume.

Great customer service- tracking my flight, noting it was going to land 40 minutes early…and making the adjustment so someone was there to meet me at the airport early! Also, receiving a confirmation email 24 hours prior was reassuring as well. Thank you!!
