Families and Children
Our Family Lane awaits passengers with kids at Linate and Malpensa, Terminal 1 and 2.
Family friendly Airport offers a full range of free services for children and their parents in Milano Linate and Malpensa airports since 2012. During the holidays this year, thanks to the collaboration with Edizioni Piemme and with the coordination of Atlantyca Entertaiment, the beloved director of The Rodent’s Gazette, Geronimo Stilton, will be on hand to help families through the airport.
Implemented at the start of the school holidays, the Family Lane provides priority access to families traveling with children up to 12 years-old. After going through the security check point, young passengers receive a brochure full of information, from the indications for hand baggage and security checks to the presence of play areas and dedicated services for the family. In addition, the brochure includes many fabu-mouse games aimed at making the airport experience more fun.
The Family Lane is available to passengers with kids:
- at Linate: during Christmas holidays, from 23th to 31st December from 7 am to 9pm

baby pit stop
Milan airports provide special areas where you can breast-feed your baby in total privacy without being disturbed.
The Baby Pit Stop can be found at the Sala Amica, which is clearly signposted with a distinctive logo. Inside there is an ergonomically designed chair ideal for breast-feeding, a table for baby things and a changing top. Coloured screens offer mum and baby complete privacy for as long as is necessary. The space is provided free-of-charge as part of UNICEF's campaign to support breast-feeding.
Small babies must be fed whenever they are hungry, wherever mum happens to be. And this means that there are occasions when it may be necessary to breast-feed in a public place. If you are leaving or returning from a holiday, you might find you have to breast-feed at the airport. An airport is a busy crowded place with lots of people rushing around or waiting for a flight. It's not an ideal environment for breast-feeding which requires peace and quiet. With the new feeding rooms, mums can devote all the time they need to their little one.
In all boarding areas, there are interactive games themed Geronimo Stilton, where your children can have fun, make new friends and live the time at the airport as play and social experience.
