How do you travel with a car seat?

Do you need to bring a car seat when traveling?
You need to fly with a car seat, even if you don’t have a seat for your baby. If you are gate checking a car seat, you need to carry it all the way to the gate. You might end up with your baby or toddler in your arms the entire time, even if you purchased a seat.
Can we take car seat in plane?
