 Flight ticket prices for babies

Many airlines offer discounted or free tickets for babies under a certain age (usually under 2) who will be seated on an adult's lap during the flight. In such cases, you may be required to pay a reduced rate or only the applicable fees.

If you want a separate seat for your baby, you will most likely have to pay the full price of a child or adult ticket. Airlines have different rules on this subject, so we recommend you contact us to find out details specific to your case.

Extra luggage allowed when flying with babies

Most airlines allow additional baggage when traveling with a baby. Some of these are:

Diaper bag – You can carry essentials for a flight with your baby in it, such as diapers, wipes, baby food, formula, extra clothes and other necessary items (Remember to check the dimensions and weight allowance or contact us to inform you about this chapter).

Stroller - In most cases, you are allowed to bring a baby stroller. The stroller can be a compact folding one or even a larger one. However, there may be some restrictions on the size and weight of the stroller, depending on the airline that will be flying.

Car seat - If you plan to use a car seat on the plane for your baby, most airlines will allow you to bring it as an extra carry-on item. However, some airlines may require you to put the car seat in your checked baggage if there is limited space on the aircraft.

Carrycots and bassinets available on board

Many airlines provide specially designed strollers and bassinets for babies during the flight. To make sure that you can benefit from these, we recommend that you make a request to us in advance when you book the ticket (you can contact us 24/7). The number of bassinets or carrycots available on an aircraft is limited.

Selecting seats on the plane

Choosing the right seats can greatly affect your comfort during the flight. Consider the following options:

The seats in the front row of each section will give you more legroom. These are ideal for setting up a bassinet or to have extra space for the baby to move around.

Aisle seats will allow you to move easily to change diapers or walk the baby without disturbing other passengers.

Baby's health and safety when traveling by plane

Ask your pediatrician for advice before traveling, especially if your child has specific health problems or if you need medication to relieve pain or motion sickness. See here what medicines you can take with you on the plan.

Help your baby relieve ear pressure during takeoff and landing by nursing, bottle-feeding, or offering a pacifier.

 The comfort of the baby on board

Bring a soft blanket, favorite toy, or pacifier to provide comfort and familiarity to your baby during the flight. Remember, keeping baby entertained can make the flight more enjoyable for both of you. So, also consider these 10 entertainment options to keep kids entertained on the plane.

Tip: Remember to stay calm and flexible. Babies are wonderful and unpredictable.

That's all! We hope we were useful to you!
