Air Travel with Multiples

Our longest trip was when we moved from Salzburg to Australia in January. The twins were then 2 1/2 and their brother 1 year old.... The whole thing took about 24 hours and we were drained, but we are already planning our next overseas trip, so it couldn't have been that bad.

Can It Be Done?? That's usually the first question parents of young twins ask when considering a flight. Our answer? Of course! Seasoned travellers from the twins list offer their advice-- we hope it makes your next trip more enjoyable.
