Don’t leave travel plans too late, as summer approaches flights become more expensive. Local home airports are a great option for families with young children. They are easier to travel to and offer overall reduced journey times. Also, smaller airports are generally less busy with shorter distances to walk in smaller terminal buildings. Facilities such as shopping and food outlets will be more limited, but this should be offset by avoiding an endless hike to your boarding gate.
