Fun for kids!

Travelling with kids can be a lot of fun—and sometimes a little challenging.

Here are all the fun things your kids can enjoy so you never hear them utter the words “I’m bored” when you travel through EIA.

Children's Play Area

Kids play areas

Let them jump and play at 1 of our 3 kids play areas:

  • by Gate 16 (after security in Domestic-International Departures)
  • by Gate 68 (after security in Domestic-International Departures)
  • by Gate 88 (after security in US Departures)

Get directions to the nearest play area using our interactive terminal map.

Arcades, gaming and charging stations

Older kids can pass the time playing in one of our arcades or Xbox stations:

  • Domestic-International Departures Lounge, near gate 49
  • US Departures Lounge (Xbox station)
  • Arrivals Level 1, near door 3

There are also many charging stations around EIA to keep all of your devices charged.

EIA Activity Book cover

Activity book for fun things to see and do at EIA

Before you travel, print off the informative activity book and flip through it with your kids. Our Airport Volunteer Ambassadors also carry these with them throughout the terminal.

It is packed with 20+ pages of travel tips and fun things to look for and do at EIA and will help you plan your waiting time. Who knows, it might even inspire you to come a little earlier than you planned!

Tuck it in your kids’ carry-on along with some crayons so they can enjoy the fun activities in the lounges or on the plane.
