Lifehacks that will make traveling with a baby on an airplane easier

At what age can I fly with my child on an airplane? Should the baby be in your arms or in a separate seat? How do I choose the best seats? These are just a small percentage of the questions that parents worry about before a flight. The answers to them are in the OBOZREVATEL selection.

At what age are children allowed on a flight?

Even newborns are allowed on the plane. However, some airlines require a certificate from a pediatrician about the child's health and a written waiver from the parents in case the child feels unwell during the flight.

Can I take my children in my arms?

Children under 2 years of age are allowed to be held in their arms. At the same time, parents are obliged to fasten small passengers with special belts when required by the airline's rules.

Until how old do I not need to buy a separate child ticket?

It all depends on the carriers. There are no general rules on this issue. Most companies allow you to avoid paying for kids under two years old if they are held by their parents during the entire flight. Others may require a separate ticket.

Is it safe to hold children in your arms?

Airline employees agree that it is better to put babies in a separate child seat that is attached to a regular seat. In this case, parents can take their own cradle or ask the flight attendant for one. Children over 2 years old should definitely have a separate seat and special seat belts designed for their height and weight. This will help protect the child from injury and damage during the flight.

Can I take baby food on an airplane?

General rules state that you cannot take on board any container with a volume of liquid exceeding 100 ml. However, baby food is an exception in this case. You can take the necessary amount of food and drinks that would ensure a comfortable stay of the baby on the plane. You can also take diapers, diapers, and personal care products in your hand luggage. In case of illnesses that require time-consuming medication, you are allowed to bring medications. But they must have a prescription.

What seats are better to choose?

For a flight, the best seats are those at the very front, near the window, and next to the toilets. In the first and last cases, parents will have more space to accommodate their children, as well as the opportunity to install a cradle. Seats near the windows are best for distracting and calming the baby.
