Minors Under 2 Years Old

What to do when traveling with infants?

Learn everything you need to know when traveling with children between seven days and two years old.

Diaper Bag

You can take a diaper bag weighing up to 22 lb (10 kg) and measuring no more than 9.8 x 15.7 x 15.7 in (25 x 40 x 40 cm) as carry-on baggage. It must fit in the overhead compartments of the cabin.

One checked Item

You can check one item for transporting your child (e.g., a car seat; not applicable for checked baggage).

Stroller

Remember that you can also bring a stroller up to the aircraft door and receive priority boarding.

If you travel with a baby, remember:

· In accordance with official regulations and for onboard safety, the adult traveling with the infant can't sit in an emergency exit row.

· There must be one adult traveling for each infant on the reservation.

· Your carry-on baggage may include baby items such as baby formula, milk, and food that do not exceed 3 oz (100 ml).

· Remember that on all flights to the United States, powdered substances such as milk, chocolate, and powders for water, among others, of more than 12 oz (350 ml) in total can't be transported in carry-on baggage and, therefore, must be placed in checked baggage. Your children can't travel if they are suffering from any type of viral illness (chickenpox, measles, etc.). Visit Medical Assistance for more details.

· This service only applies if your baby is between 7 days and 2 years old (if your child turns two before your flight's departure date, you must pay the full fare).

· You must present valid identification for your baby. This may be a birth certificate, passport, or vaccination record that proves their age and identity. For international flights, you must present a passport along with a visa, when applicable.

· The cost of the service is per customer, per flight, and is non-transferable.

Round trips

You must purchase an adult ticket for the inbound flight if your infant turns two years old during the trip.

During the Flight

The infant must travel on the adult´s lap throughout the entire flight; if you want your infant to travel in a car seat, you must always purchase an adult ticket in order to buckle it to the seat and supervise it.

Travel with two infants

If you are traveling with two infants, only one can travel on your lap, and you will have to purchase an adult ticket for the other one.             

Consider

Remember that only car seats approved by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) for use on airplanes are permitted in the cabin (verify the information on the seat).
