bmibaby Infants Policy

Do I need to reserve a seat for my infant?

Children up to 2 years old (24 months), are not required to have their own seat. You must, however, inform bmibaby that you will be traveling with an infant on your lap.

Only one lap child is allowed per adult. If one adult is traveling with more than one infant under 2 years of age, a seat will have to be purchased for each additional infant.

You can also choose to purchase a seat for your infant as long as you have the proper child restraint device.

Will I pay for my infant to travel?

Yes, a child up to 2 years old (24 months) will be charged an administration fee of £15 plus taxes, even if the infant will be on the lap of another passenger for the flight.

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

Yes, a ticket will have to be purchased for any flight on which the infant will be over 2 years old.

Can I sit in the exit row with my infant?

No lap children or infant 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.

Infant Baggage Allowance

Infants who are not occupying their own seat are entitled to a 11 lb/5 kg baggage allowance. This baggage allowance will be added to the adult responsible for the infant. For children over 2 years, the price of flights and the baggage allowance is the same as for adults. Please note a pram/buggy can be carried free of charge.
