Flying with children


Valid for travel until 27 October 2018

Travelling with children? Rest assured our inflight and airport crew will be on hand to help make the trip a comfortable one for your child, and a peaceful one for you.
Your hands will be full when travelling with children so before you start out on your journey, make sure you carry all your travel documents in one easily reached place, make sure your hand baggage meets security requirements before you leave home and work out whether you need to carry buggies to the aircraft or pack them in your checked-in baggage. Remember to keep everything that your baby needs on the flight in your carry-on luggage, ensuring that it is always to hand, bearing in mind the EU Aviation Security Regulations.

At the Airport

Unaccompanied minors are recommended to present at check-in 60 minutes prior to departure.
Parents/ guardians dropping off the unaccompanied minor are required to remain in the departure airport until the flight has departed.
A ground representative will escort the child through security and remain with them until boarding is ready. The escort will pre-board the child to allow them to become familiar with the aircraft and our crew.

On arrival

A ground representative will take responsibility of the child from the care of our crew, escort the child through immigration and collect their bag. They will then check all valid identification before releasing the child from their care.
The parent/ guardian meeting the unaccompanied minor must present valid photo identification and on arrival are required to allow sufficient time to be at the airport prior to arrival. In the event there is a delay, CityJet will contact the local authorities who will take responsibility for the child.

Travelling with infants

Infants under the age of 2 years may fly on CityJet flights provided that they sit on an adult's lap (one infant per adult), restrained with an infant seatbelt.

It is not possible to book for an unborn child. When planning on travelling with a child which isn't born yet, you can add his or her name to the booking when the child has been given their name. Please contact our call centre for assistance.

A fee is charged per sector.

A maximum number of infants are allowed per flight and aircraft type under our authorised conditions of carriage. If the infant reaches the age of 2 years prior to the return journey they must pay the applicable fare, taxes, fees and charges for the entire journey.
