Portable strollers

Child strollers not exceeding 25.5 cm (10 in) in diameter and 92 cm (36 in) in length when folded are accepted on board, and will not be counted towards carry-on baggage allowance. Please note that checked-in strollers are transported at the owner's risk.

Portable parks

Portable parks will be accepted on board, but will count towards the baby / toddler's carry-on baggage allowance.
