Which stroller is allowed on a plane?

Does my stroller count as luggage? Does my stroller fit in the cabin?... You ask all these questions when you prepare to travel with a child. And it is important to know in advance whether or not your stroller will be accepted in the cabin, or whether the shipping costs in the hold will be the responsibility of the carrier or not. Each airline has its own rules and regulations regarding the carriage of strollers and cabin dimensions. In addition, there are certain strollers for which you will have no hassle because they can go in the cabin, you can discover them at the end of the article!

Understand that each company has its own rules

Some airlines allow strollers in the cabin, while others require them to be checked in the hold. Some airlines allow free carriage of strollers, while others charge a fee. It is essential to check your airline's website or contact them directly for accurate information.

                    Ecological Responsibility

                    As we explore the practicalities of traveling with a stroller on an airplane, it's essential to emphasize the importance of environmental responsibility. Air travel has a significant impact on the environment due to greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, whenever possible, it is recommended to favor more environmentally friendly means of transport, such as the train.

                    Reducing air travel helps reduce our individual carbon footprint. Train journeys, for example, generally emit less CO2 per passenger than plane flights. As well as limiting greenhouse gas emissions, the train often offers a more relaxed and comfortable alternative, which can be particularly beneficial when traveling with young children.

                    Although each trip is unique, it is important to be aware of the impact of our transportation choices on the environment. By opting for more sustainable solutions when possible, we collectively contribute to the preservation of our planet for future generations. So, the next time you're planning a trip, take a moment to consider eco-friendly transportation alternatives and take a step closer to more sustainable travel.
