Travelling with Children
Baby food & drink
Baby/infants food must be in a retailer sealed jar or container, home-made food is not permitted. Baby food and drink will be tested but not opened. Please place all baby food and drinks into a blue basket in a separate tray.
Taking food through security
You can bring food with you through security for your child if they have special dietary needs as long as it is the correct amount for the flight/journey and is supported by a doctors note.
If you require privacy, mothers are permitted to use the First Aid room located before security. Please ask a member of the customer services team to take you there.
There are also baby changing facilities available in the First Aid room.
Bottle warming facilities
The restaurants in the departures lounge are happy to provide boiling water but are unable to reheat items (food or drink). Bottle warmers are not available for use.
Several of our food outlets provide breakfast, lunch and dinner menus especially created for children. Children’s menus are available in Pilots Bar & Kitchen (located to the left after you pass through security).
