AirAsia X Infants Policy

Do I need to reserve a seat for my infant?

The fees for infants under the age of two (2) years (on the date of travel) but above eight (8) days old are provided for in the fee schedule.

An infant may travel provided he or she sits on an adult's lap. Only one (1) infant is allowed for one (1) adult.

The number of infants is limited per flight due to safety regulations and as such, there may be a possibility that AirAsia X may not be able to accommodate a request to carry infants on board.

What is the baggage allowance for my infant?
