Children at airport with baggage.

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, plus their essential extras, such as a pushchair and car seat. Infants also have their own allowance for the must-haves 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 for in-flight essentials, which is included in your allowance. However, 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, for all cabins. 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.

Pushchairs

Walking distances at airports can be long, which is why at certain airports we offer a service that returns your pushchair back to the aircraft door. There are strict parameters on sizing of pushchairs, so please check below if your pushchair qualifies for this service.

  • It must be a single piece, slimline, fully-collapsible pushchair.
  • Maximum dimension size including wheels:
    Height 38cm
    Length 117cm
    Depth 38cm
  • If your pushchair is within the dimensions, it will be tagged with an orange Return To Aircraft Door label, with your customer information included, before being placed in the hold. You can then collect it on arrival at your destination. Please contact the cabin crew for assistance.
  • If your pushchair is bigger than the dimensions, it will not be delivered to the aircraft door on arrival. Instead, you can collect your pushchair on the baggage carousel in the baggage hall at your destination, along with your checked baggage.

Please note, the above service is not offered at all destinations, so please ask at check-in for your relevant destination.

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.
