Travelling with children


Familiarise yourself with the airline's rules!

Each airline has its own rules for travelling with children. They apply to pregnant women, to those travelling with newborns and toddlers, to unaccompanied children, rules for using baby seats in airplanes, etc. Before travelling with children or before a child is travelling unaccompanied, please read the rules of the airline available on its website or call the carrier’s enquiry service. Contact information for airlines operating at Riga Airport is available here.

Check what documents your child needs!

In order to cross the state border, in addition to a personal identification document (passport or ID card) a child may also need other documents, such as a notarised parental power of attorney. Children's travel arrangements are stipulated in Cabinet Regulation No. 721 “Procedures by which Children Cross the State Border”. If you have any questions or concerns about your child's travel arrangements or other travel issues, please call the State Border Guard's 24/7 helpline +371 67075718, +371 67075616, email: or look for the information on the Border Guard's website www.rs.gov.lv, “Information for Border Crossing" and "Questions and Answers".

Before travelling, we also recommend that you acquaint yourself with the requirements for travelling with a child to a specific country. This can be done at the respective national diplomatic mission.

!!! Airport staff are required to refuse registration to children flying alone if they do not have the required documents!


Riga Airport takes special care of families with children offering them a number of different amenities.

Baby strollers

For the convenience of families travelling with children there are free baby strollers available at the Airport terminal passenger area. They can be found at the most important crossroads of passenger flows: upon departure - right after the security controls, and upon arrival - at the departure sectors. The baby strollers are specifically marked with the logo of Riga Airport.


There are three exciting playgrounds available to the youngest travellers at Riga Airport. In the departure sector B, there is Ergo playground for active and creative activities. In turn, children departing from the departure sector C (both in the Schengen and non-Schengen area) can play the aero-circus game drawn by Airport's co-worker Eva Heislere.

Baby changing rooms

There are five changing rooms available to families travelling with infants. For their exact location please see Riga Airport terminal map!

Unaccompanied child

Children travelling alone from Riga Airport to a Schengen country can be accompanied by their parent or other person up to the designated departure sector. For more information on how to receive this service please see the infographics, and read The Rules for Accompanying Children to Aircraft.
