We did a lot of research on which folding bikes to purchase and ultimately landed on Bromptons for one reason: they fit in an overhead compartment (unless you’re on a tiny plane; more on that later).

There are many options to travel on the plane with a Brompton bike. You can get a suitcase or a hard case that is designed for a folding bike, you can box it up at home or at the airport, you can also try gate-checking it, or bring it on the plane as a carry-on. I took a combined approach. Because I wanted to be able to ride to and from the airports and not having to rely on taxis or transits, I decided to get a portable transport bag and checked in my Brompton bike. Moreover, I already have enough stress as it is from flying, I didn’t want the extra stress from dealing with TSA and gate checking staffs.
