bmi regional Infants Policy

Do I need to reserve a seat for my infant?

Children under 2 years (24 months), are not required to have their own seat. You must, however, inform flybmi that you will be traveling with an infant on your lap. Lap children may only be held by passengers who are at least 16 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 may 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?

The fare for a child under 2 years old (24 months) is 10% of the adult fare as long as the infant will be on the lap of another passenger for the flight. A full fare must be paid if a seat for the child is reserved.

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.
