Priority security checkpoint for families with children under 12
To ensure a smooth start to your journey and make it as pleasant as possible, Toulouse-Blagnac Airport offers a fast-track security lane for families in the Departures hall (service available during major holiday periods).
If you are travelling during the school holidays, our staff will hand out free colouring books and games to your little ones, to help keep them entertained while they wait for their flight, and on board.
Carry-on baggage items
When you go through security, you will be allowed to take the following items onto the plane:
- Food for your baby, as much as required for the duration of the trip (milk, water bottle, small jars of baby food for the outward and return journeys as well as during your stay);
- Be careful when transporting frozen milk, which must be placed in the hold
- Pushchairs must be checked in and labelled at the check-in kiosks by staff from your airline, before you go through security. Please contact your airline to find out more about the arrangements for travelling with pushchairs, and the maximum sizes.
Facilities are available in the terminal to enable you to change your baby’s nappy or heat up their food. They are located near the toilets, shown by a clearly visible sign.
Each baby area includes:
- a nappy changing table;
- a mattress protector dispenser;
- a waste bin for nappies;
- a children’s toilet;

If the baby area does not have a microwave, please feel free to ask the nearest restaurant to heat up your baby’s meal or bottle for you - we will be delighted to help.

You can travel with a pushchair with most airlines, and this service is usually free of charge. Depending on the model, size and weight, your pushchair will either be treated as a carry-on item or checked into the hold.
Travelling with your pushchair:
Pushchairs must be checked in and labelled in the check-in zone by staff from your airline.
To make your time in the terminal easier, some airlines let you keep your pushchair with you through to boarding, under certain conditions. Otherwise, pushchairs will be placed directly in the hold, like any other baggage item.
Please contact your airline to find out the specific arrangements for pushchairs.
Self-service pushchairs in the boarding area:
As soon as you come through security, you will find self-service pushchairs available in the boarding area - they can be used right up to the boarding gates.

You will find everything you need for your children in the airport terminal:
- Microwave ovens to heat up baby’s bottle - simply ask at the catering outlets.
