Traveling with Kids

When planning your trip ask your airline about its guideline in respect to children — likely it would offer discounted infant or child fares, an approved child safety seat, etc.

The airlines say it, but you can never hear it enough, especially when kids are involved: Give yourself plenty of time. It’s extra important to ensure that you arrive at the airport in plenty of time and are well prepared so that you can enjoy a smooth start to your trip. How early you need to arrive depends upon a variety of factors, including your airline, airport, plans for parking, flight time and whether or not you are checking baggage. If you’re traveling during school vacations, the airport will likely be crowded with other families doing the same thing.

If you don’t fly often, discuss with your children ahead of time what this process will be like and what will be expected of them. Even if you are frequent flyers, remind your children to be on their best behavior.

The children’s facilities at Pulkovo Airport include baby changing facilities, play areas and restaurants offering children’s menus.

Baby changing facilities

There are baby change areas on every floor of the terminal at Pukovo, both before and after security control — just look for signs with this symbol . Many are located alongside the toilet blocks.

Play areas

There are two Play areas in the terminal, both are on the third floor of the international departure area. They are unsupervised. Play areas are suitable for children aged 0–12, who must be accompanied by an adult.
