What Is a Cabin Approved Stroller?

Travelling on an aeroplane with a baby may be a new experience for many parents. It can also be an anxious, daunting or stressful time. Every child is different when it comes to their flying experiences and how well they fly. One thing is for sure, you can help take away some of those stressful feelings by opting for a suitable travel system stroller to travel with.

Having a cabin-approved stroller from the get-go can make the flying process a whole lot easier for you. You will have the peace of mind that you need, knowing that your stroller is the correct measurement to fly with as cabin hand luggage, all whilst being easily manageable too.

Read this blog post for more information to find out about what makes a cabin-approved stroller and what there is to remember when travelling via aeroplane with a stroller.


What Is a Stroller?

A stroller is a type of buggy or pushchair, with one main beneficial difference. A stroller is designed to be completely compact, lightweight and foldable. It makes for easy travelling and transporting your baby from one place to the next with ease.

Strollers are also super lightweight compared to other models of baby transport systems. They are also designed for little ones from the age of 6 months to about 3 or 4 years old. This means that they are too advanced for newborns especially, since a newborn baby needs to be laid flat in a pram.

Your stroller makes it a breeze to travel anywhere. They will also sit facing outwards in the stroller as they will have reached the age where everything around them is a new discovery and is extremely new and exciting.


Travel-Friendly Strollers

Strollers make for perfect travel buggies. They can be collapsed down into a compact cabin-sized stroller quickly and within a couple of seconds with the use of just one hand.

When travelling with your family, the last thing you will want to worry about is handling your luggage, your child and a big bulky pushchair in tow. A stroller makes life simple, easier as well as hassle and stress-free when travelling as a family.

Load your travel stroller with ease onto any form of transport, particularly a train, bus or plane. These are the places where you will have limited room to squeeze in next to other passengers whilst finding a seat and space for your luggage.


Can I Take My Stroller on an Aeroplane?

Yes, you can bring your stroller on board a plane with you. Most airlines will allow you to bring your stroller onto the plane, for free! No additional charge is required for you to bring your stroller on board as cabin baggage for most airlines. This is in addition to the cabin bag allowance that you can bring on board with you.

Make sure you check with the airline you are flying with well in advance to be prepared and double-check that bringing a stroller on board is free of charge.

The Right Size

Your stroller needs to be the right size when folded down to fit in the overhead locker compartment on the plane. A model too bulky would not be able to fit in the top overhead lockers and would have to be checked in as luggage to go beneath the passenger deck.



To store your stroller in the overhead compartment on an aeroplane it has to be light enough to be lifted overhead and stored.

A model too heavy would make for a difficult transition into the overhead lockers and you might need the help of others to lift it. When you are trying to sit yourself and your little one down, get them settled, and sort your family’s baggage out too - this could prove to be a lot of hassle.



If your travel device for your baby is not foldable or collapsible into a smaller size, then it has no way of travelling with you on a plane. You might have sufficed with a model that does not fold when on your travels so far, but this will not do for aircraft travel.

If you do not have a foldable stroller, then now is the time to invest when going on holiday via aeroplane. Having a stroller that is easily and quickly accessible from being folded down to reassembled is perfect when travelling through any airport, or when reaching any destination.

Another benefit of having a collapsible model and taking it with you on board an aircraft, instead of checking it in with your suitcases, is you have the freedom to use your stroller around the airport. When you come to fly, just simply click the button and have it folded away in a matter of seconds.

This benefit will come to be extremely handy when navigating your family around large, busy airports and when your baby or toddler cannot walk anymore due to tiredness.

In cases of these, without your stroller, you would have to carry your baby throughout the airport which could cause more hassle for you when you have your bags to carry and your boarding passes and passports to keep on hand too.


Things to Remember Before You Fly With a Stroller

Take this small checklist to ensure you have remembered everything before you embark on your air travel journey.

  • Check you can bring your stroller on board with you.
  • Check there are no additional charges when bringing a stroller on board with your airline.
  • Check your individual airlines' cabin luggage measurement allowance - and that your stroller’s folded-down measurements match up to these dimensions.
  • Check to see if your stroller needs to be in a stroller travel bag and if this rule applies to check-in luggage or cabin luggage.
