Information on Flying With Children Out of Gatwick

If you are one of the lucky ones flying out of Gatwick Airport for the bank holiday, then check out the following information on the children’s facilities offered at Gatwick. All to help make your time at the airport with children that little bit easier!

Gatwick meet and greet parking
When you’re travelling with children the last thing you want to do, when trying to park your car at the airport, is to think about finding a car park and lugging both your children and luggage on and off a coach.

Well, by booking Gatwick meet and greet airport parking you don’t have too! Meet and greet parking is the only way to park with children if you want to arrive stress free! Simply drive right up to the airport terminal. Your driver is waiting for you to park your car, leaving you and your little ones to make your way straight into check-in.

If you are struggling with luggage, push chairs and little ones then Gatwick offers a Porter service. Pre-booking your Porter will mean someone is there to meet you – whether that’s at the terminal entrance, in the car park or at the train station, assisting you right through to check-in.

Dedicated Family Lanes
Gatwick has dedicated family lanes at the security points at either ends of your flight – as you make your way into the Departure Lounge and when you arrive back into the UK. These lanes give families extra help, space and time, when passing through with small children and buggies.

Kids’ Zone Play Areas
To give your children some time to run around, Gatwick has introduced its new Kids’ Zones – and they are totally free to use! There’s a soft play area for little ones, somewhere to watch TV, and what’s more, plenty of seating!

If you’re flying out of the North Terminal you’ll find the Kids’ Zone behind Boots, and if flying out of the South Terminal, it’s upstairs opposite Cafe Rouge.

Airport Lounges
Many travellers prefer to book an airport lounge to truly relax whilst they are at the airport. Gatwick plays host to a lounge in each terminal, which welcomes children under 12. The lounges offer complimentary hot and cold food and refreshments including wines and beers.

The North Terminal lounge, managed by Servisair Lingfield has a separate children’s area with video games and computers. The South Terminal lounge, managed by No.1 has a dedicated family area for under 6s, plus a games round and cinema for older children.
