FLYING WITH CHILDREN
Expectant Mothers & Newborn Babies
You can fly without any specific documentation when you're pregnant up to the 28th week of pregnancy, although we always advise you to consult your doctor or midwife beforehand. After 28 weeks you'll need authorisation from your doctor and from our medical team to fly. Contact us to find out more.
Newborn babies can fly after 48 hours, although we recommend that you wait until they are 1 week old.
Infants (Children under the age of 2)
If your child is under two and doesn't have their own seat we'll charge 10% of the adult fare. If your child has their own seat, they'll be treated as a child aged 2 to 11, meaning a variable discount will be applied. If your child turns 2 during the trip you'll need to book a 'child' ticket for both the outbound and inbound flights.
If you've booked an infant their own seat, please bring an authorised car seat for them. On each plane we have a small number of cots that are suitable for children weighing up to 11kg - please contact us to book a seat at a cot position.
Children (between the ages of 2 and 11)
Children between the ages of 2 and 11 will need their own seat and we provide a variable discount depending on the ticket type.
We'll always seat children under the age of 12 with an adult in your travel party and we do our best to ensure all families sit together. We can't always guarantee to do this, particularly when flights are full. Alternatively you can reserve seating from the time you book.
We don't offer a service for unaccompanied minors, which means any child under the age of 14 must be accompanied by someone aged 16 and over. Our partners at Iberia and Vueling offer a service for unaccompanied minors and may be able to assist.
