Traveling Families

Pittsburgh International Airport has several areas with amenities to ease traveling with children.

A new and improved Kidsport is planned for Pittsburgh International Airport. For now, families can enjoy a temporary location near Gate C56.

The Mothers’ Nursing Lounge provides comfort and privacy for families.

Air travel can be especially difficult for individuals with autism and other neurodevelopmental challenges. The Sensory Room, Presley’s Place, offers a calming space for families to relax.
