We recommend that passengers travelling from Exeter Airport dress warmly in cooler months as the airport does not have any airbridges. Access to the plane is exposed and may involve walking outside.

Leisure and family facilities

There are baby changing facilities, both land-side and air-side, in dedicated rooms adjacent to the toilets.

In the airport restaurant there's a children's menu, highchairs, baby food and baby bottle warming available.


Collapsible buggies are permitted on top of your baggage allowance. If you are travelling with a buggy, you can either deposit it on the over-sized baggage belt after check-in or keep your buggy with you up until the point of boarding the plane, where a member of staff can be on hand to load the buggy into the hold. When landing at Exeter Airport, your buggy will be available at the foot of the aircraft steps or else will be available for collection at the over-sized baggage reclaim area.
