Avianca Infants Policy

Do I need to reserve a seat for my infant?

  • An infant under 2 years of age, travelling on an adult’s lap, is only required to pay 10% of the adult’s fare, plus the additional amount charged for security, fuel fees, and international taxes.
  • There is no discount for infants over 2 years of age.
  • Infants travelling with the reduced fare are not entitled to any baggage allowance, food service, or an extra seat.
  • Reduced fare for infants must be bought on avianca.com at the same time of purchase as the adult fare.

Will I pay for my infant to travel domestically?

Yes, infants under 2 years of age, travelling on an adult’s lap must pay the reduced fare price ticket.

Will I pay for my infant to travel internationally?

Yes, infants under 2 years of age, travelling on an adult’s lap must pay the reduced fare price ticket.

What if my child turns 2 on the trip; will I have to buy a ticket for the return flight?

Yes, only children under 2 years of age can travel at a reduced price. If your child turns 2 on the trip, they are required to purchase a full priced fare for the return ticket.

What types of child restraint devices are allowed?

  • If the infant pays for a full priced seat, a portable baby carrier may be attached to the seat. The carrier must be FAA approved; otherwise it must be checked as excess baggage.
  • If space on the aircraft allows, a collapsible stroller may be acceptable as hand luggage in the cabin.
