THE BRITISH AIRWAYS EXPERIENCEFamily travel

Let our family take care of yours

Family travel means more with us. It means looking after pushchairs, providing child seats and getting you onboard first. From generous baggage allowances for the entire family to keeping your little ones entertained, we're here to make your entire experience as stress-free as possible – keeping you safe and sound from airport to arrivals. It's what we do best.

Pushchairs and baggage

We know little travellers sometimes require a little more luggage. Our generous baggage policy offers the same allowance to children over 2 and adults. Even infants get their own allowance for the essential extras we know they need when travelling. And we're always here to help.
