Tips for how to make your visit to the airport with children easier

  • Get to the airport on time so that neither children nor adults are stressed. It is recommended that you be there at least two hours before departure.
  • Let your children run off their energy before boarding.
  • Check your outer garments in the airport left luggage lockers or cloakroom if you are travelling to a warm destination.
  • It is a good idea to “mark” smaller children with your mobile phone number in case you get separated.
  • Download Swedavia Swedish Airports app (free) - nice to have both before your journey and when you are at the airport.

Kids Track – security screening entrance for families with children

Families with children have their own entrance to the security checkpoint in Terminal 5, for Gates F26-F69. This makes going through screening faster and smoother for you and your children.

Loan of prams

The majority of airlines request that prams are checked in. If you need a pram after checking in, there are prams that can be loaned in terminals 2, 4 and 5. If you are travelling from Terminal 3, you can pick one up in Terminal 2.


At Stockholm Arlanda Airport there are two playgrounds: one in Terminal 4 and one in Terminal 5. Both have been designed together with Junibacken.
