The YOYO Stroller on the Plane

YOYO Babyzen 6+ stroller on a plane

So, can the YOYO Babyzen stroller 2 go on the plane ? And specifically as carry-on luggage ?

Yes, indeed. All strollers can go in the hold, but can the YOYO go with you in the plane’s cabin, thereby avoiding additional fees during your flight ?

The answer is obviously yes.

The YOYO stroller is often simply referred to as the “stroller that fits in the plane.”

Try it out around you; you’ll see.

To give you an idea, I’ve traveled with my kids and the YOYOs to Venice, Barcelona, and Rhodes in Greece. And honestly, thank you for choosing this stroller.

I’ll detail the questions you might have below in my feedback.

I can guarantee that all eyes will be on you when you board with the stroller. Especially when you enter the plane with the stroller still unfolded.

I hope I can help you make the right stroller choice.

Happy reading

Can the YOYO Babyzen stroller fit in the airplane cabin ?

Does your carry-on suitcase fit in the cabin? Then the YOYO stroller will too.

The YOYO stroller is the size of a backpack. Does your backpack fit in the airplane cabin? Then the stroller will too.

Still don’t believe me?

What if I told you that Yoyo and Air France created a special color for the YOYO stroller?

Taking the Plane with My Babyzen Stroller, Will It Go in the Hold ?

Do you check your backpack in the hold ?


Then it’s the same for the YOYO stroller; it will come with you in the cabin and will be comfortably stowed above you… ideal for ensuring your baby is settled just before takeoff.

However, if the plane isn’t fully booked, the airline might offer to store the stroller in the hold for free.

Then it’s up to you to decide. Personally, I’ve always taken the YOYO in the cabin.

How do you explain that it’s a YOYO to the staff ?

Indeed, how do you make the flight attendants understand during boarding that the YOYO Babyzen stroller is considered carry-on luggage?

I had the same question before my first flight with the stroller. I remind you that I didn’t know the YOYO was such a well-known stroller.

Once it’s your turn to board, the flight attendant will look at your stroller, then at you, and say this phrase that I hear every time:


You’ll respond: “YES YES.”

And there you go, the matter is settled, and your stroller will come with you as carry-on luggage.

Can we take the plane with the YOYO Babyzen stroller ?

Yes, you can take the plane with the YOYO Babyzen stroller due to its small size when folded, as well as its lightweight. Therefore, it is considered as carry-on luggage for most airlines.

The ZEN in the brand’s name is not there for nothing.
