Can I take a double stroller through airport security?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

You can definitely take a double stroller through airport security. Airport security procedures may vary slightly depending on the airport and country, but generally, strollers are allowed to go through security checkpoints.

When going through airport security, you will need to fold up the stroller and place it on the X-ray scanner belt along with your other belongings. It is a good idea to remove any items from the stroller’s pockets or storage areas before placing it on the belt to ensure a smooth screening process.

Some airports may require you to remove your children from the stroller before sending it through the X-ray scanner. In such cases, you can carry your children through the metal detectors or walk-through scanners while the stroller goes through the X-ray machine separately. Once you and your children pass through the security checkpoint, you can reassemble the stroller and continue on your way.

It’s important to note that different airports may have their own specific guidelines, so it’s always a good idea to check with your specific airport or airline beforehand to ensure you are aware of any specific requirements or procedures.

In my personal experience, I have traveled with a double stroller multiple times and have never encountered any issues at airport security. As long as you follow the standard procedures and guidelines, taking a double stroller through airport security should not pose any problems.

To summarize, you can take a double stroller through airport security. Just make sure to fold it up and place it on the X-ray scanner belt, remove any items from its pockets, and follow any specific instructions given by security personnel at the airport.
