For flights from/to Paris-Orly, the certificate has to be drawn up in both English and French. This certificate should be no older than 7 days. After the 34th week of pregnancy flying is no longer allowed.

7. Carriage of infants and children

Newly born infants are not allowed to travel in a pressurised cabin until seven days after their birth.
The birth should have taken place without any complications.
Premature infants are not transported.
A luggage allowance of 10 kg (including buggy or Maxi Cosi) applies for infants.

For infants up to the age of 23 months a number of regulations apply on board, which the passenger has to take into consideration when making a booking:
Each infant has to be accompanied by a person of 16 years old or older.
An infant may only be transported on the lap.
Because of the safety regulations, each adult may only travel with a single infant.
Only if the passenger has paid for an additional separate seat for the infant at the normal fare will there be room for a Maxi Cosi, approved by ANWB or TNO, with a maximum measurement of 41 centimetres wide and 57 centimetres long. Because of their size and flight safety requirements, a car seat or travel cot is not allowed.
Children’s seats for cars for larger children (from 9 months) are normally not suitable for fastening onto an aircraft seat and are therefore also not accepted on board.

TRANSAVIA´S crew always have the right to refuse a child’s seat for a car/a travel cot/a Maxi Cosi in the interest of flight safety. Travel cots are also not allowed on board. TRANSAVIA does not have any travel cots on board.

7.2 Children travelling alone
The following rules apply to children travelling unaccompanied (unaccompanied: children accompanied by someone of 16 years of age or older):

Children under the age of 4 will not be accepted on board travelling unaccompanied.
Children aged 5 to 11 are allowed to travel unaccompanied. The staff of the TRANSAVIA Call CENTER must be notified that the child will be travelling unaccompanied. TRANSAVIA will make arrangements for the child to be escorted to and from the aircraft. The purser on duty will look after the unaccompanied child during the flight and on arrival the purser will hand the child over to the TRANSAVIA handler at the final destination. There must be someone of 16 years of age or older to collect the child at the final destination. Otherwise the child has to go back on the return flight. The person who has come to collect the child must report to the TRANSAVIA handler at the airport in question. The cost of this service is €50.00 per child per one way.

Children aged from 12 to 16 are allowed to travel unaccompanied and will not be escorted by TRANSAVIA personnel, unless this service was requested. Passengers accompanying children under the age of 12 must be 16 years of age or older themselves.

8. Passengers with reduced mobility

The carriage of passengers travelling with a wheelchair or in need of special assistance is subject to certain restrictions. Passengers wishing to travel with a wheelchair or in need of special assistance must notify TRANSAVIA when booking or after booking, at least 48 hours prior to departure. The passenger should specify whether he or she can walk unaided, whether or not he or she is able to manage stairs or that he or she is unable to walk. The appropriate form of assistance will be arranged based upon this information. Passengers who require assistance are requested to check in early in order to allow sufficient time to arrange a wheelchair. If you are travelling with a wheelchair with a wet battery or a scootmobile, please contact the TRANSAVIA Call CENTER for the conditions.
The height of wheelchairs cannot exceed 86 cm. TRANSAVIA also kindly requests that passengers with wheelchair check in on time (2.5 hours before departure) so that the wheelchair can be made ready for travel.

8.2 Service on board
TRANSAVIA flight attendants are not authorised to assist passengers with eating or personal hygiene. The same applies to lifting or carrying passengers and administering medicines or injections. If a passenger needs this kind of assistance, he or she will need to travel with a personal escort who can assist the passenger during the flight. A personal escort pays the normal fare.

TRANSAVIA may request the passenger to permit a search, x-ray, manual scan or other type of scan to be made of his person and/or his baggage, and may search or have searched the passenger’s baggage in his absence if the passenger is not available, for the purpose of determining whether or not he is in possession of or whether his baggage contains any item named in General Terms and Conditions of Business and Carriage of TUI fly, for tracing purposes or for reasons of safety and security, and in order to ensure that provisions in respect of baggage are complied with. If the passenger is unwilling to comply with such request, TRANSAVIA may refuse to carry the passenger or baggage. In the event an x-ray, manual scan or other type of scan causes damages to the passenger and/or his baggage. TRANSAVIA does not accepts any liability therefore, except in case of willful misconduct or gross negligence.

9.5 Checked baggage
(a) Upon delivery to TRANSAVIA of baggage to be checked, TRANSAVIA shall take custody thereof. TRANSAVIA will thereupon issue a baggage identification tag for each piece of checked baggage.

(b) TRANSAVIA may refuse to accept baggage as checked baggage unless it is properly packed in locked suitcases or other suitable containers to ensure safe carriage with ordinary care in handling. TRANSAVIA has no obligation to take refused baggage and/or articles in custody. If baggage and/or articles are taken in custody other than as checked or unchecked baggage, TRANSAVIA does not accept any liability therefore, except in case of willful misconduct or gross negligence.

9.6 No declaration of higher value and charge
Checked baggage will be considered to be accepted without declaration of a higher value. However, you can increase the limit of liability for loss of, damage of delay to baggage by filling in a “special declaration” stating a higher value of the baggage. TRANSAVIA will charge a supplementary fee for this. This fee is based on a tariff, caused by the extra costs for carriage and insurance of the baggage involved, on top of the respective costs for baggage, valued on or beneath the amount of the liability limit. This tariff can be obtained on request.

9.7 Unchecked baggage
(a) The following hand baggage is allowed per person:
• 1 piece of hand baggage (incl. laptop, photo and film equipment)

(b) Baggage that the passenger takes on board of the plane must fit underneath the seat in front of the passenger, or in a closed baggage compartment that is available for the passengers in the cabin. Hand baggage must still comply with TRANSAVIA’s other regulations. Any instructions issued by TRANSAVIA must be followed by the passenger. Objects that do not comply with the type of objects stated on the ticket, or exceed the number of objects stated on the ticket, as well as objects that TRANSAVIA has stated are too heavy or too large, or for other reasons are not safe, are not permitted in the cabin and must be checked and the appropriate baggage charges paid.

c) Musical instruments are normally transported in the cargo hold. Musical instruments which the passenger believes are not suitable for carriage in the cargo hold (due to risks of breakage etc) are only carried in the cabin if TRANSAVIA is informed of this beforehand and if TRANSAVIA has granted permission. Carrying these types of objects can be charged for separately. Musical instruments can only be carried in the cabin whose sizes comply with the requirements on hand baggage. It is not possible to book an extra seat for carrying musical instruments.

9.8 Collection and delivery of baggage

TRANSAVIA reserves the right to determine the manner of carriage and to limit the number of animals which may be carried on a flight.

Animals, trained to assist governmental officials, rescue teams or handicapped passengers, and accompanying such officials, teams or passengers, will be carried free of charge, together with containers and food, in addition to the applicable free baggage allowance.

Acceptance for carriage of all animals is subject to the condition that the passenger assumes full responsibility for such animal and the necessary permits and certificates, or the like.
