What is an Infant Fee?

You may choose to pay an Infant Fee to allow your infant to sit on your lap, instead of purchasing a seat for them. Only infants between 8 days old to 2 years old at the time of travel will be eligible. If your child is above 2 years old, they are not eligible and you will be required to purchase a seat for your child. 


What does the Infant Fee cover?

The infant fee covers only the infant and not additional baggage. You may bring one (1) extra bag for baby-related items (in addition to your cabin baggage allowance) up to a total of 3 bags. However, the total baggage cannot exceed 7kg. 


Can I use the Infant Fee together with a portable cot, infant carrier or child safety seat?

You cannot use the Infant Fee together with a portable cot, infant carrier or child safety seat, as the item will be required to be placed on a separate seat.


If I choose the Infant Fee, does my baby need to be strapped to me via a baby harness?

There is no need to use a baby harness. The baby will be provided a second seatbelt to be strapped to the parent prior to take-off.
