Flying with children and infants

We understand that flying with children can sometimes be difficult and stressful so we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you.

  • If you’re travelling with children under 5, we’ll board you early;
  • If you are travelling with a child who requires them, you can bring two items for free with you.  These include a travel cot, pushchair, double pushchair, buggy, car seat, collapsible or non-collapsible pram, booster seat and/or baby back carrier (please check they are suitable to take on board);
  • You can choose your seats in advance (for a fee) to ensure you sit together;
  • We have kids snack packs that can be purchased on board, that include puzzles and games to keep kids entertained;
  • We support breastfeeding mothers and you can feed your baby on board at any time.

Flying with children explained

Travelling with children should be as easy as possible. This video answers some of the most popular questions including permitted travel items, luggage allowances, food, drink and seating.

Infant, child, or adult?

Here’s how we differentiate between infants and children. (Some airlines use different definitions.)


14 days – 2 years old*

Infants can only fly with an adult.

Babies under 14 days old are unable to travel.

*If your child is older than two years or turns two while you are travelling, you will have to book a separate seat for them.


2 - 15 years old
Children between these ages cannot travel unless they are accompanied by an adult who is 16 years or older. Unaccompanied children aged 15 and under are not permitted to travel alone and will not be permitted to board the plane as easyJet does not provide an escort service or special requirements for unaccompanied children. 




easyJet classes anyone from this age and above as an adult and therefore you can fly with children, and with people requiring special assistance.

If you’re pregnant, you can travel up until the end of your 35th week (32nd week for multiple pregnancies) and you don’t need to bring a medical certificate. Some seats on board the aircraft are restricted but we show you which ones when booking.
