We know that travelling with little ones can involve a lot of extra baggage. That's why we have the most generous baggage allowance – children over 2 have the same allowance as adults. This takes into account items like a pushchair (stroller) and car seat. Infants also have their own allowance for the essentials we know they need when travelling.

Hand baggage allowances

When you travel with us, your child (aged 2-11) has the same hand baggage allowance as an adult. 

If you're travelling with an infant (under 2), you'll be able to bring an extra bag for them, included in your allowance, with the items that they may need during the flight.

If you pay for a seat for your infant,they're booked as a ‘child’ and are given the same baggage allowance as an adult.

You can't combine your baggage allowances, so please make sure you double check allowances for each member of your family, plus size and weight limits for hand baggage.

Airport security restrictions for liquids

Airport security will vary around the world, so please check what restrictions your airport has in place for carrying baby milk and food in your hand baggage.

You’ll be able to take liquids through security that meet the general restrictions. When you’re travelling with a baby, you may also take milk and formula in baby bottles, which can exceed the liquid measure restrictions.

Checked baggage

Your child (over 2) will have the same free checked baggage allowance as you, which will vary depending on which cabin you are travelling in.

If you're travelling with an infant (under 2), their free checked baggage allowance is one standard bag of 23kg in the hold, no matter what cabin they are travelling in. This does not apply if you are travelling with your infant on a hand baggage only (Basic) fare.

You can't combine your baggage allowances, so please make sure you double check allowances for each member of your family, plus size and weight limits for hand baggage.

Checked baggage allowances

In addition, you can also take up to two of the following items free of charge (as checked baggage):

  • fully-collapsible pushchair (stroller)
  • car or booster seat
  • travel cot
  • baby back carrier

If you’re travelling from London Heathrow Terminal 5, check in at our dedicated family zone located in Zone E. With direct access to oversize baggage belts for car seats and pushchairs, check-in will be much easier for the entire family.

Pushchairs and car seats

When it comes to pushchairs, the size is important if you want to be able to collect your pushchair at the aircraft door on arrival.


If you have a small, fully collapsible and lightweight pushchair/stroller (with maximum dimensions of 117cm x 38cm x 38cm/46in x 15in x 15in when the pushchair is collapsed), you can take this right to the aircraft door and collect at the aircraft door at most airports.

Please arrive at your departure gate no later than 45 minutes before departure time, and prepare to pre-board the aircraft.

Our staff will put your pushchair into the hold and will do all possible to return it to you at the aircraft door. Pushchairs that fold down into a carry bag, such as the Yo-Yo Zen and are within the maximum hand baggage dimensions, can be taken on board in place of, but not in addition to, your larger cabin bag. As with all larger cabin bags, this is not guaranteed to travel in the cabin, but our staff will make every effort to accommodate if space is available.

All other, larger pushchairs, including double and multi-piece pushchairs can be taken to the departure gate, however, on arrival you must pick up these larger pushchairs at the baggage carousel in the baggage hall.

Please be aware that walking distances at airports can be long, and if you bring a pushchair that does not fit within the criteria to be collected at the aircraft door, you should be prepared to transport your child to the baggage carousel by another method. Many parents find slings useful to carry their baby whilst keeping hands free for baggage.

Car seats

You can take the car seat on board the aircraft, if you've booked a seat for your infant or child and intend to secure the car seat into it.

Please check car seat dimensions and safety requirements so that you know your car seat will fit safely into the aircraft seat.
