With children at the airport

With Lufthansa, flying becomes an experience for the whole family that begins as soon as you arrive at the airport. At our Frankfurt and Munich hubs in particular, families are especially well looked after before boarding.

Make airport waiting times pass more quickly

The way an airport operates fascinates children: suitcases are loaded and unloaded, fuel tankers are attached to aircraft and perhaps you even get a glimpse of the pilots through the airport’s windows. That’s why we recommend you should schedule in a little more time at the airport, so that the idea of flying becomes more comprehensible and even more exciting to children. At many airports there are viewing terraces available which, in fine weather, allow even better insights into how an airport works.

If your children would prefer to play and run around, visit the play corners specifically designed for children which most airports provide. All the essential information about these can be found on the websites of your departure and destination airports. You can find out at the Lufthansa family counters at Munich and Frankfurt airports how best to spend the time at the airport with your children.

With children at Frankfurt Airport

Free buggy rentals

The system is simple: in Terminal 1, strollers are available at the service point in the pre-security part of Concourse B and at information counter 10 in the B transit zone.

In Terminal 2, you can pick one up at the service point between Concourses D and E in the pre-security area. When you’re finished, you take the stroller back to where you got it. Or, if you’re departing or changing planes, you can simply leave it at the gate. Airport staff will collect it there.

Separate children’s area in the Frankfurt Business Lounge

Children feel at ease here! Lufthansa has created its first children’s area in the Frankfurt Business Lounge at Gate B48. Here young passengers may look forward to a play corner and playpen, to drawing tables, games consoles and an Internet PC for kids. A children’s cinema and comfortable beanbag chairs also ensure lots of fun is had even before the flight.

First and Business Class passengers, HON Circle Members, Senators, Frequent Travellers and holders of Star Gold cards have access to the lounge.
