Children on Layovers

Following these tips will help you reduce your wait time at the security checkpoint.



Tips for managing long lay-overs or extended flight delays when flying with children

Take care of business 1st. Use the restroom, get something to eat and create a "home base" near your flight gate.
 

Look at the airport map to see if there are any child play areas or exhibits that you could visit.
 

Take a walk around the airport. Create a guided treasure hunt for your children. Let’s find the water fountain, the news stand, the rest room, etc.
 

For toddlers, create a mini-play area away from high traffic areas. Pick a place that has natural boundaries with chairs or windows so the child can wander "freely" but somewhat contained. Windows are great for observing air-traffic. Play eye-spy.
 

Some airports have exposed outlets that can be used to recharge DVD players.
