Travelling With Children

Are there pushchairs available to hire at the Airport?

Pushchairs are available when you get off the plane to help with your journey to the baggage hall when you can collect your luggage. The pushchairs are coin operated with a £1 deposit.


Are there baby changing facilities at the Airport?

There are baby changing rooms located throughout the terminal for you to change nappies or feed your baby. Most of these are located near to the toilets.


Can baby food and other essentials be taken through Security as hand luggage?

Baby milk and baby food can be taken in hand luggage through Security. Please make the security officer aware you are carrying this.

Baby milk and other essentials can be pre-ordered online at Boots for collection in our Departure Lounge shop, so there is no need for you to have to carry this through security. This must be pre-ordered at least 5 days in advance.


Do any lounges allow children?

Both our No.1 Lounge and Aspire Lounge allow children accompanied by adults. You can pre-book or turn up on the day but there are savings if you book in advance.


Are there restaurants that cater for young families and special dietary requirements?

Our restaurants are delighted to welcome children and most have special menus and colouring packs for entertainment.

Wherever possible, our restaurants will accommodate all special requirements. Frankie & Benny’s now offer a coeliac society approved menu for gluten free diets. To discuss and arrange in advance, please contact our restaurants directly.

Is there entertainment for children in the terminal?

Birmingham Airport has an absolutely awesome play zone with the latest technology-led games, as well as soft play for our smallest passengers. Children can come and play before your flight and meet Zoom - our SkyCadet Mascot for a photo. The Sky Zone is located next to Gate 54 in the North Pier and is open between the first and last flight.

We've also created a Journey Through Birmingham Airport guide, designed to help parents when travelling with young children.
