Which Airlines allow strollers on Board?

Can I bring my baby stroller or child carrier through a TSA security checkpoint and on a plane? It’s a question that every new mom has to ask on her first flight with a child.

Yes, you can. The stroller will need to be screened first.

Keep in mind though that there is no one standard when it comes to checking or carrying-on strollers, here are the stroller policies of some airlines around the world. Of course, policies can change at any point, so please double check with your carrier of choice before travel if you need additional clarification on their current stroller rules.

You can transport a foldable stroller and car seat in the hold at no extra charge. Some strollers may be accepted in the cabin, subject to space availability. Depending on the type of stroller, the following size limits apply.

  • Small foldable stroller:* dimensions cannot exceed 15 cm x 30 cm x 100 cm / 5.9 in x 11.8 in x 39.4 in

  • Other foldable stroller: this replaces your child's hand baggage allowance and once folded, its dimensions cannot exceed 55 cm x 35 cm x 25 cm / 21.7 in x 13.8 in x 9.8 in.

Please note: strollers must be packed in a carrying case that covers the stroller fully. In addition, for security reasons, some airports may have to deny access to strollers inside the boarding areas.

Strollers and prams

Infants and children can take a stroller and/or car seat for no extra charge in addition to any other allowances, even if their fare does not include checked baggage.

Single strollers with a completely collapsible frame and seat will normally fit in the overhead locker on our 777-300, 777-200, 787-9 and A320 Domestic aircraft only. On our other aircraft they must be checked in because there is limited locker space. If the flight you are travelling on is full, airport staff may request that your stroller is checked in.

Prams, three-wheeled jogger-style buggies and larger strollers do not fit in the overhead locker and must be checked-in on all aircraft.



Flights within Mexico: One bassinet or strolled is allowed. Infants traveling on passenger’s lap are not subject to additional baggage allowance.

International Destinations: one additional piece of luggage besides the stroller or bassinet, not to exceed 20 kg (44 pounds) in weight or 1.15 m (45 inches) in size as a carry-on is allowed.
