Use of child seat onboard aircraft

Children between 8 days and 2 years old who will sit in separate seats from their accompanying adults must have purchased tickets at the child fare rate regardless of whether they will use a child seat.


If a ticket has been purchased, we will provide a child seat upon request.

Pregnant passengers (those who will travel 28 days or less before they expect to give birth) and adults accompanying 2 children under 3 years old should review the below information.
