Travelling with children and infants

We aim to make flying enjoyable for our youngest passengers.

Note that children and infants get a discount on airfare. See more details on discounted prices below.

Activities on board

We aim to entertain kids when they fly with us.

In the personal in-flight entertainment system you'll find a variety of movies and TV shows for children of all ages, ranging from live-action movies to animated series. We provide children with headphones as well, so they can enjoy the entertainment on board.

For those who like more hands-on activities, we hand out pencils and activity sheets for them to get creative. 

Food for kids

Children aged 2-11 years receive a complimentary snack and drink on all flights. A meal for infants (under 2 years) is complimentary but needs to be preordered before the flight.

Warm water is always available on board to warm up milk. 

Please contact our service center at least 24 hours prior to departure to add any meals for your infant and/or child to your booking.

Booking a ticket for infants

It is necessary to purchase a ticket for an infant. They are priced significantly lower than tickets for children, but the actual discount depends on the fare type.

When travelling with an infant under the age of 2 (24 months), the infant does not require a seat as they will be seated in the parent’s lap. If you wish to book a seat for an infant, you can select a seat during the booking process. Passengers travelling with infants may not be seated in an exit row, or in the row directly in front of or behind an exit row.

For more information about baggage allowance for infants, check our baggage allowance page.

Tickets for unborn children

It's not possible to book a ticket for an unborn child. If you're planning future travel with a child that is yet to be born and wish to book an infant ticket, it's possible to add the child to an existing booking after birth, when the child has been given their name. Contact our service center for more information.
