Travelling with Children
Small passengers are just as welcome as the big ones at Tegel Airport. We hope our tips and remarks will help you to find your way around as easily as possible.
Most airlines allow passengers travelling with children to take an additional piece of hand luggage.
Nappies and baby food, a change of clothing, wet wipes, snacks, medicines, toys and books are essentials in the parents’ hand luggage. By the way: baby food and baby water are permitted in hand luggage because they are exceptions to the 100 ml rule.
Bulky baggage: prams, buggies, car seats
Families can make waiting time fly at Tegel Airport thanks to a play area in the security area of Terminal C1. There, a total of five wall games encourage children to explore the colourful world of the airport. And there really is something for everyone here, including Flughafenpärchen (airport pairs), a version of Memory, in which players have to match up two identical cards, and an experimenting game called Europatour, in which the kids fly by magnetic tile to some popular destinations from Berlin. Children can play all of the games on their own or with their parents or other children. The area’s twelve fabric seat cubes with aircraft pictogram prints also invite kids to sit and play.
Passengers with babies and small children, as well as children travelling alone and being looked after by a member of the airline in question, can use the new Family Room in Terminal A (Level 0) before their flight departs. Travellers will find a nappy-changing facility here as well as a small play and reading area. There is a couch for use by parents. The Family Room also has its own sanitary section.
