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. Lap children can only be held by passengers who are at least 15 years of age. 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.
Infant bookings cannot be made on the Fiji Airways or Pacific Sun websites. All infant bookings must be made through a Fiji Airways office or reservations center in advance of the day of departure. Adult bookings which need to include an infant can be completed on the website and then the infant may be added by calling the reservations center.
Will I pay for my infant to travel?
Yes, a child up to 2 years old (24 months) is usually charged 10% of an adult fare plus taxes if they do not occupy a separate seat. Otherwise, a child fare ticket must be purchased.
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.
What infant amenities are available on the aircraft I'll be flying (i.e. bassinets)?
Infant amenities vary by aircraft. When you're on the airplane page, look for the Infant Amenity Icon. 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 Fiji Airways 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-old. In addition, infant seats are not allowed in the row directly in front of or directly behind an Exit.
