We aim to make the flight enjoyable for our youngest passengers.
On board, we aim to entertain the kids.
In the personal in-flight entertainment system you will find a variety of movies and TV shows for children of all ages, ranging from live-action movies to animated series. We provide the children with headphones as well, so they can enjoy the show.
For those who like more hands on activities, we hand out pencils and activity sheets for them to spend time on.
We care for our youngest passengers. Children between the ages of 2 and 11 years receive a complimentary meal and juice on all flights.
Warm water is always available on board in order to warm up milk and baby food and it is also possible to order yogurt and a banana for infants.
An infant meal needs to be reserved in advance, at least 24 hours before departure or at the time of reservation (1-800-223-5500 prompt 1).
All children between the ages of 2 and 11 years of age receive a complimentary meal on all flights.
Passengers traveling with children aged 2 to 11 years old may bring on board an approved child seat if the child sits in the chair during the flight.
When traveling with infants under 2 years old, passengers may also bring an approved child seat on board, provided that a seat by the window is available on the plane. Passengers can ensure a seat for a child seat by purchasing the child fare.
The use of child seats is allowed during all stages of the flight, including during take-off and landing, provided that:
CARES Child Aviation Restraint System is approved on Icelandair flights. CARES is designed specifically for aviation use for children aged 1 and older who weigh between 22 lb and 44 lb.
The airline does not provide child seats of any kind during on our flights, neither CARES Child Aviation Restraint System or any other. It is the passengers' responsibilities to bring the child seat.
When you are traveling with an infant under the age of 2 (24 months), the infant does not require a seat as he or she will be seated in the parents lap.
You are still required to purchase a ticket for the infant which is subject to infant fares and taxes. They are priced significantly lower than tickets for children but the actual discount depends on the fare type.
For more information about baggage allowance for infants, check out our Baggage Allowance page.
Passengers can purchase seats for infants but they will need to hold the infant during takeoff and landing.
On Icelandair flights an Unaccompanied Minor (UM) is a child between 5 and 11 years of age (11 inclusive) who is NOT accompanied by a passenger 12 years of age or older having the same reservation status and capable of taking full responsibility for the child.
Unaccompanied Minor service can be arranged to passengers between 12 and 15 years of age (15 inclusive). Same rules and fees apply as for passenger with mandatory Unaccompanied Minor service.
It is not possible to book a child traveling alone via the internet. Also, it is not possible to book for an unborn child. When planning on traveling with a child that isn't born yet, you can add their name to the booking when the child has been given its name.
To book for an Unaccompanied Minor, please contact Icelandair Reservations at 1-800-223-5500. Unaccompanied Minors must be confirmed at least 3 days before the flight, so please allow for advance purchase.
