Travelling with children
At Marco Polo Venice Airport, you can take strollers through the security checks and up to the gate. In this case, the stroller must be labelled at the check-in desk, and then remains at your disposal until boarding. Depending on the airport of arrival, it will be handed over to you at the exit of the aircraft or in the baggage pick-up bay.
Alternatively, the stroller can be directly taken onto the plane, after informing the check-in desk, which will label it as hold luggage to be handed back at the oversize baggage gate near the security checks. From then on the stroller will no longer be at your disposal to as far as baggage pick-up at your airport of arrival.
Children and their accompanying adults can access the security checks through a dedicated Priority Lane.
For baby foods, exemptions are allowed for the limits of the liquids that can pass through security. In these cases, it is allowed to exceed the limit of 100ml (3.4 onces) and to not have to seal the products in 1-litre plastic bags. The exemption applies to amounts of necessary food and liquids depending on flight-time and the need of the baby.
These products must nevertheless be presented separately from the hand luggage before security checks.
Exemptions are also allowed for to carry liquid medicines necessary for passengers. These products must however be presented separately from the hand luggage before security checks.
Inside the air terminal are some nurseries, situated close to some washroom facilities.
Pregnant women who do not want to pass through the metal detector can request to be manually checked by a female security officer.
