Children’s Facilities

Travelling with Children through Birmingham Airport
Let’s be honest, travelling with children can be stressful! From managing everything from the excitement to the meltdowns whilst trying to keep your cool, it can be a tough old game. But it needn’t be. A little pre-planning on your behalf can help save you time, (not to mention, hair!) so below, we have listed the various children’s facilities in Birmingham Airport, including where to find baby changing, play areas, family friendly places to eat and helpful articles on keeping children entertained on long journeys.

It’s changing time! Toilets and Changing

Baby changing rooms are accessible throughout the day and are situated in all of the ladies’ toilets.

It’s play time! Entertaining the children

Birmingham Airport are proud to host two interactive SkyZone’s for little ones, up to 13 year olds. Both sites, one at Gate 3 in the South Lounge and and the other at Gate 54 in the North Lounge, offer a wide range of entertainment including interactive games, activities and gadgets such as floor projections, touch screen tables, a gazing station, musical light beams and pods that are ready to tell you a story! Children can go on a Musical Mission, carry out Spot Checks at Security and even learn how to fly a plane as well as much more.

Entertaining the kids at the airport
Are you slightly envious?! We are!

In addition to this, you can download and print out the Children’s Guide to the Airport and have them follow it and fill it on along their journey; perfect for slightly older children.

Alternatively you can arrange your own entertainment if you come prepared. Try and remember children’s favourite toys, colouring books or some travel games when you are packing your hand luggage so you can bring these out when the children start to get bored waiting for your flight. A really useful tool for keeping your children entertained are audiobooks; they are a great way of keeping your children quiet and entertained so you can enjoy the facilities on offer at Birmingham Airport.

It’s time to eat! Shopping and Eating
