Edi the pilot is here to help you throughout your family's journey through the airport.
From discovering new places around the world using his colouring map through to helping you know what liquids you can take through our dedicated family lane and welcoming the younger members of the family to his soft play area between Gates 10 and 11, Edi is with you every step of the way.
Taking baby milk through security
Passengers travelling with small children are allowed to take liquid baby milk, baby food and sterilised water on their flight. While amounts over 100ml are permitted, we ask that you only take what is needed for the duration of your flights. These liquids are subject to screening and must be presented to one of our Security Officers at the loading station. Security Officers may be required to open the containers in order to screen contents.
All other liquids, gels, creams and pastes, e.g. baby changing creams, are included in the 100ml liquid rule which is explained here.
Baby changing facilities
Edinburgh Airport has baby change rooms in the following locations:
- Before security, in UK arrivals (behind Costa).
- Before security, on the first floor near WH Smith
- After security, near Gate 11.
- In the international baggage reclaim hall (arriving passengers only).
You can purchase essentials for children, including formula milk and nappies, at the Superdrug store in our departure lounge.
WHSmith also stocks a wide range of magazines, comics and puzzle books to keep children entertained in the departure lounge before they travel and whilst in the air.
Most of food outlets provide high chairs and children's menus.
If your family like to watch the planes, EAT and The Gathering offer a fantastic window view onto the runway.
The Gathering - (1 child eats free with every paying adult)
The fun stuff
There are three soft play areas available for children at Edinburgh Airport. Located in the main departure lounge opposite The Liquorice Tree, opposite Gate 2 and in the south-east pier beside Gate 15, these kid-friendly zones can make travelling with small children a little easier.
All our Edinburgh Airport parking options are family friendly - compare them to see which suits you best.
