It is a huge travel time for families. That's especially true at airports. And, local airport officials say they are ready for us! Chloe Harkins is with the Mobile Regional Airport - she's also a Mom. She says planning ahead is the key!
"I would recommend printing your boarding pass ahead of time. It's one less thing you'll have to worry about when you get here. Try to get to the airport early to avoid those long lines. Give yourself plenty of time to get to security - especially with your kids and all of the stuff that is traveling with you," explains Chloe.
And, remember, it can take longer to get through security -- even board the plane - with little ones in tow. Speaking of security, remember that children 12 and under can leave their shoes on to go through security. You have to carry your little ones through security, they can't go through in a carrier or a stroller. You have to send those through the screening separately. All carry-on baggage will be screened. That includes toys, games, snacks - all of that! All liquids need to be less than three-ounces and in a zip-top bag. But, the rules are different for baby formula, breast milk and other liquids for infants and small children.
There are also some perks that go along with flying with our little ones. Oftentimes you can board the plane early. And, sometimes, you'll get to meet the pilot - maybe even take a picture. Fun for the scrapbook!
