    Default Baby jogger city mini as plane luggage

    Hi has anyone taken their baby jogger city mini on the plane? How did you package it and did it get damaged?

    I'm flying in Friday and not sure what to do.

    Thanks

    Yep me.
    When we checked it in the staff at the airport just wrapped it in plastic. Was all fine and didnt get damaged at all.

    Yes me. I have the travel bag.
    I check it in with our luggage and we have travelled overseas with it and absolutely no damage. I highly recommend you buy the travel bag. I think from memory it was only around $80.00

    We bought a generic pushchair canvas bag and have taken ours on a plane at least 10 times and no damage at all. Our bag is also big enough to fit a car capsule so we often put both in and don't say so we get an extra item of luggage! Although you can usually take pushchair to gate I would advise checking it in and then taking baby in carrier so you can pack it in a bag etc rather than fiddling about at the gate.

    Thanks everyone!! I'll try to get the bag tomorrow and if no luck will wrap it in plastic at the airport. Bubs is only a few weeks old so I can't use one of those cheap little strollers yet. DP is travelling with us so we can take turns holding DD once we have checked the pram in. If there's room in my carry on bag I'll pack a wrap too

    You can get a cheap stroller but one that fully reclines. Works well too.

    We have taken ours (GT) all over the world (26 countries on six continents) and always check it in/gate check it. I put it in a thick bin liner (rubbish bag), I would recommend covering it in something as aircraft holds are typically filthy and washed with some pretty harsh chemicals (I previously worked in aviation). It has been bumped around but not damaged. It is our travel stroller so we are much more relaxed with it than our bugaboo. We have the travel bag but the one that goes with it from baby jogger - note that you have to take the wheels off to put it in this bag, I found that really annoying so switched to the bin liner. Enjoy your trip!

    I would also get a sling/ carrier to carry Bub around the airport if I were you, I always found this made life much easier.

    Ahh I do have the GT, didn't think about the wheels...thanks! Just managed to get a bag at short notice and all set.

    Did you put the bin liner inside the baby jogger bag or on the outside?
