Learning More On-Line

Maybe it's just me, but I find airport maps really useful. If you're going to an airport where you've never been before, take the time to do a little research beforehand. If you've got a quick connection, knowing where the “B” concourse is and how to get there can make a big difference.

An excellent resource if you're going to a new place, or if you want to see what facilities are available at an unfamiliar airport you'll just be transiting. You might, for example, see that a supervised play area and baby changing room are available at your stop over and try and hold off making that last diaper change until you deplane.

(P.S. changing anything but your mind in an airplane toilet is no joy; we have more to say about airplane toilets elsewhere on our site).

We used to recommend two sites that helped you find this information, but one is no longer online and the other is no longer useful. We'll point you to two sources.

First, check the in-flight magazine from your airline. That obviously won't help you for your first leg, but can be quite useful with your connection or destination.

Second, just lookup the airport's web site. You can pretty much just type in the city name and “airport” and it's usually the first result. The airport sites should have most of the information that you need.
