Airline Travel With a Stroller

Airline travel can be an exhausting, confusing, and exasperating experience these days. With rules and regulations on what you are allowed to bring on board changing everyday, and with each airline putting their own spin on the rules, it can be impossible to know what you can and can’t do.

Traveling with an infant or toddler makes flying about 100 times more difficult, it seems. So most parents choose to navigate the busy airports with the help of a stroller. Traveling with a stroller can definitely make things easier, but before you book your next flight, we’ve compiled a list of specific rules and regulations regarding the transportation of your baby’s stroller during your flight.

Most airlines consider a stroller to be a piece of luggage that, thankfully, is not subject to any additional baggage fees. In other words, you can have your regular carry-on and personal item just like everyone else, and bring the stroller as an additional piece without charge. Most airlines do require that you gate check the stroller unless it can fit under your seat or in the overhead bins. But since most strollers do not fit in those spaces, gate checking is the way to go. Some airlines also have restrictions on the size of the stroller. Most either recommend or even require that your stroller be a small umbrella stroller. Hawaiian Airlines specifically does not allow jogging strollers. Other airlines do not have a specific rule for it, so that may mean it is open for interpretation. If you plan on bringing a jogging stroller or other large stroller, you may want to call the airline directly before you travel to inquire if it is OK to do so.

Here is a list of several airlines and their specific regulations that we’ve compiled based on what was published on the official airline web sites on September 9, 2009. Please be aware that these regulations could change at any time, so before you travel be sure to double check with your airline to make sure the same rules apply. Not all airlines were specific in spelling out their rules about strollers, so we’ve put what we were able to find. For more detailed information, contact the airlines directly.
