Travelling with Minors

Travelling with Infants

An infant is a minor who has not reached the age of 2 on the date of the flight and is travelling without occupying a seat, accompanied by an adult. One adult may accompany a maximum of two infants, providing that for the second infant a seat is booked and a car/child seat is carried. The car/child seat, approved for air transport, must be able to fit on the aeroplane seat, which is 42cm wide and 45cm deep. The car/child seat may not show any defects.

The maximum number of infants depends on the number of supplementary seatbelts and infant life vests available onboard. Always make a reservation at least 48 hours in advance to ensure we can carry you and your infant(s).

Travelling with Children

A child is a minor aged 2 or above and not having reached the age of 12 on the date of the flight, occupying a seat and accompanied by an adult who will bear responsibility for the child throughout the trip.

Unaccompanied Minors

An unaccompanied minor is a minor aged 5 or above and not having reached the age of 12 on the date of flight, travelling alone. Unaccompanied minors are not allowed on AIS Airlines flights.

Travel Documents

Minors of European Union citizens travelling from, to or through countries in the European Union need to carry their own passport or ID card. Having their names entered in their parent’s passport is no longer permitted. This rule does not apply to document holders of the United Kingdom or Ireland.


Minors travelling in their own seat may bring the same amount of cabin baggage and check-in baggage as an adult.

For an infant that will be travelling on your lap, you may bring:
•    1 piece of cabin baggage with baby care items, with a maximum weight of 6kg and with dimensions not exceeding 55cm x 40cm x 23cm.

For a minor until the age of 5, you may bring 1 small, completely collapsible, stroller free of charge. If the stroller does not fit into the cabin, you can check it in at no extra charge. The stroller may have a protective cover but this may not contain any other items.
