Airlines Now Required to Check Strollers at Gate:


Just in time for the holiday travel season, a new provision will require commercial airlines to check strollers of any size in at the gate prior to boarding.  The provision was pushed by Senator Kristen Gillibrand as part of the FAA Reauthorization Bill in order to help make traveling easier for parents.  She said the provision will allow parents “to check strollers of all sizes at airline gates, preventing airports from leaving families stranded without their stroller or struggling to get to their destination on time.”  Previously, some airlines had size and weight limitations for strollers, whether or not the stroller had cleared security.
