For a flight with the youngest members of the family, it is necessary to be informed in advance and have a travel plan.
Babies from one week to two years of age do not occupy a special seat on the plane but sit in the lap of an adult, but they are issued a special air ticket. When booking a ticket, it is mandatory to emphasize that you are traveling with the baby and state the date of birth of the child. A special passenger seat can also be reserved for the baby, according to the appropriate tariff for children, so in that case, it is mandatory to use a child car seat that has a certificate for air travel.
On local routes, babies generally travel for free, while in international air travel, the ticket price is 10% of the applicable fare for an adult.
The baby must be accompanied by an adult who must not be under the age of 18 or must be 16 if he or she is a family member. An adult can travel with a maximum of two babies, one of whom must be at least half a year old. Then one babysits in the lap of an adult, while the other must be in a separate seat, with a certified car seat for air travel.
Keep in mind that there is no official recommendation when to go with the baby, but if you already have to, you must consult a pediatrician. Namely, many airlines, due to the use of already recycled air that can affect the baby’s immune system, have rules in which they allow babies older than 7 weeks to fly, while some others will allow smaller babies to fly, provided you have a doctor’s license.
Please note that the general information, which in most cases is similar if not the same when it comes to traveling with babies, but you should keep in mind that each airline has different conditions. Therefore, we recommend that you get more detailed information through our aviokarte.me platform.
