Children

neu2008_kind

Every infant (up to 2 years of age) must be accompanied by an adult and travel on that person's lap. An infant is not entitled to a seat unless a booking with a child discount was made instead of an infant booking. Each adult may accompany only one infant. To avoid health risks, newborn infants up to the age if seven days may not be transported.

Many of the TUIfly airline aircraft have bassinet attached to the wall in the first row, which can be used for infants weighing up to 8 kg. For our very young passengers up to 2 years old, reservations for these seats on international routes can be made by telephone in the service center. On flights with other airlines, conditions may vary. Information is available from the respective airline.

The basis for calculating the infant fare or the child discount is the age of the respective child when travel commences; for round trip flights, the age of the child upon taking the return flight applies.
