An infant who has not reached his or her 2nd birthday may not occupy a seat and must be accompanied by either a parent, or an adult over 18 (the parent can be under 18, as long as he or she has legal responsibility for the child). It must be pointed out in any case on the accompanying adult's reservation.

Children aged 2-11 years have the same allowance of adults of 1 piece of luggage 23 Kgs + free transportation of a stroller. Infant aged 0-23 months a standard allowance of 10 Kgs + free transportation of a stroller, applying on all destinations and booking classes.

* Some aircraft have cots for use on board, to be handed back to the cabin staff at the end of the flight. 
Our 'cot-on-board' service should be booked when you get your ticket. If this service should not be available, you can take your own cot into the cabin, making sure first that it fits in the space available, otherwise it will have to be placed in the baggage hold.
