Infants (under 2 years)
Infants are allowed to bring one car seat and stroller free of charge on our flights.
You will be able to check-in your stroller or you can bring it to the gate for boarding where it will be put in the baggage compartment. It will be available when de-boarding the aircraft. You might have to pick it up at the baggage hall due to local customs restrictions.
You will be allowed to bring the following buggies instead of hand baggage:
Infants having their own seat can sit in the car seat. The equipment must be allowed by international aviation regulators (EASA and FAA) like infant car seats which can be used onboard. We do not allow other types of comfort seating aids meant for children to be used. Children above the age of 2 will not be allowed to use an infant car seat.
Make sure your car seat complies with requirements below:
It must be designed to be secured by a normal single lap strap used on aircrafts.
Separate 5-point restraining harness should be in the seat.
The seat must be able to fit in the seat. The area it must fit in is 43 cm*43 cm (17 in*17 in).
The car seat must secured to the aircraft seat at all times
Three-point harness to secure the seat cannot be required.
We do not allow rear facing seats
The car seat would have to be placed in the hold if it cannot be fully secured. Your infant would then have to be secured on the lap when fasten seatbelt sign is on.
We demand the seats to have one of the following labels:
EU approved label

Australia/New Zealand approved labelling

Ground staff and cabin crew might ask you to show the labelling. Be familiar with where you can find it.
Cabin crew would have to see that the seat is fastened properly and securely and accordance with manufacturer instructions.
We do not have ISOFIX systems of seatbelts to be worn over the shoulder. The car seat must be used by the seatbelt in the seat.
