Air Transat Infants Policy

Do I need to reserve a seat for my infant?

Children up to two years old (24 months), are not required to have their own seat as these children may sit on an adult's lap. For safety reasons, an adult may not travel with more than one infant at a time, no matter how many seats are purchased. Should you wish to purchase a seat for your infant, please note that it is mandatory for the infant to sit in a car seat approved by Transport Canada (click here for details).

Will I pay for my infant to travel?

There is no fee if the infant travels on a lap.

What if my child turns two on the trip; will I have to buy a ticket for the return flight?

Yes, if a child's second birthday occurs prior to the return leg of the trip, a ticket must be purchased for the child for the return flight and a seat will be assigned to him or her.

What infant amenities are available on the aircraft I'll be flying (i.e. bassinets)?

Air Transat has a diaper changing table in at least one lavatory on each aircraft. Air Transat offers onboard bassinets for babies! These bassinets, which can be placed on the bulkheads, are approved by Transport Canada. They are a safe and comfortable way for your baby to travel during the flight. The infant's weight may not exceed 11 kg (24 lbs) and his or her height may not exceed the size of the bassinet (68 x 30 x 15 cm).

If it is present, clicking on it will tell you what infant services are available on that airplane. If you do not see it, infant amenities are not offered on that aircraft. You can always contact Air Transat for more information.

Can I sit in the exit row with my infant?

Neither lap children nor infants in car seats are allowed in an exit row. In fact, all passengers in an exit row must be at least 15 years of age. In addition, infant seats are not allowed in the row directly in front of or directly behind an exit.
