Which Airports/Airlines Provide Courtesy Strollers?

Does the airport have strollers? If your travel stroller is gate checked or has been checked in straight away, or perhaps you have a connecting flight and will be in transit at another airport for a bit; then knowing which airlines or airports provide courtesy airport strollers can be very helpful when flying with a baby or toddler. (Especially if you don’t have your baby carrier with you).

This guide lists the airports/airlines that do provide courtesy strollers.

Emirates airport strollers

Do Airports Provide Strollers?

Some airports do provide prams or strollers for everyone to use, regardless of the airline you are travelling with. In other cases, it is the airline which provides them for primarily their passengers only – so you may only see them in certain terminals.

Below you will find out where you can pick up your airport stroller to borrow and any extra relevant information. The majority are free, but I’ve also included a short list below where there is a charge for using an airport stroller.

If you know of anymore please let me know so I can update this list. (You may also be interested in the facilities airports have for kids).
