Depending on the airline you are flying with, we advise you to contact them directly a couple of days before your flight if you have any questions regarding your flight and traveling with children, or if you require special assistance.
Travelling with a baby
The majority of our airlines don’t allow babies less than 2 weeks old to travel on an aeroplane; however, we would recommend contacting the airline directly to ask them if you are unsure. An infant is classed as a baby under the age of 2, and a child is classed as anyone between the age of 2 and 16. Babies under the age of 2 don’t need their own seat on a flight – they are welcome to sit on your lap instead. Don’t forget that everyone needs a boarding pass to fly, including babies, so ensure the little ones are checked in as well as yourself.
