Travelling with children

Travelling with little ones shouldn’t be a hassle and we want to make travelling through Perth Airport as easy on families as possible.

Security screening 

Special assistance and family lanes are available at T1 International and T1 Domestic. These lanes are wider and give you and your children a little more time and space to get organised and get through security.

Travelling with baby products 

There are no restrictions on baby products such as baby food on domestic flights.

If you’re travelling with an infant or toddler on an international flight, you're allowed to carry a reasonable quantity of baby products through security screening and onboard the plane, including but not limited to:

  • milk
  • sterilised water
  • juice
  • baby food in liquid, gel or paste form, and 
  • disposable wipes.

For more information about liquid, aerosol and gel exemptions for baby products, visit the Australian Government’s TravelSECURE website.  

Children’s play area

You’ll find a play area at T1 International (after passport control) to keep your little travellers amused while you wait to board (or to tucker them out before a long international flight!). It features soft furnishings for little ones and digital gaming screens for the older ones. With seating and dining options nearby, you can sit back and relax while watching the kids play and make new friends before you jet off.

Parenting rooms

All terminals have dedicated parenting rooms available. Each change room is equipped with baby change facilities, a feeding chair and nappy disposal bins. Some also have TVs and toys to keep your little one occupied. Please refer to the terminal maps for the most convenient facilities.

Prams

Your airline will provide you with a pram or stroller on request to use while you are in the terminal. If you are visiting one of Perth Airport’s domestic terminals, and aren’t travelling, your pram must be screened before being taken into the secure area.

Children-friendly dining options

There are plenty of options for little hungry tummies at Perth Airport, from boiled egg soldiers for breakfast at Longneck Public House to crumbed chicken fingers (goujouns) and fries at Harvest Food Store, or babycinos at Hudson's Coffee.
