Flying with a baby

We want to make the flight as comfortable as possible for both you and your baby. This page contains information on baby food on board, tips for flying with your baby and information on luggage allowances.

Safety first

The safety of your baby is our top priority. So your baby may not travel on our planes until he or she is at least 7 days old. Each adult may travel with a maximum of two babies. You travel with 1 baby on your lap (€20 per flight) and reserve a separate seat for the other baby (at the adult fare). You can reserve a separate seat for your baby by calling our Service Centre.

Your baby is sitting on your lap

The following luggage rules apply to your baby:

  1. No hand luggage

    Would you like to take baby food or a nappy bag with you in the cabin? Then put it in your own hand luggage.

  2. 1 piece of hold luggage of max. 10 kg

    This can be a trolley, pram or collapsible (umbrella) buggy for example. Your hold luggage must always be handed in at the check-in desk at the airport. If you would like to take more hold luggage for your baby, you can cheaply book extra kilos.

    You are only allowed to take a collapsible (umbrella) buggy of max. 10 kg up to the gate. There, the buggy will be taken from you to be transported in the hold. Are you taking a pram with you? Then it will be taken from you at the check-in desk. We advise you take a baby carrier with you for your baby.

    Please note: You can pick up your collapsible umbrella buggy from the baggage carousel after disembarking the aircraft.

    Below you can see a collapsible (umbrella) buggy that can be taken up to the gate and a pram that is handed in at the check-in desk.

Note: Important: Will your baby turn two during your trip? If so, your baby will require a separate seat for the return flight. The fare for this seat is the same as for an adult. You can make two separate bookings or contact our Service Centre for assistance.

Your baby has a separate seat

You may take the following luggage with you for your baby:

  1. 1 piece of hand luggage of max. 55 x 40 x 25 cm and max. 10 kg. Want to be sure that your baby’s hand luggage can be brought on board? Make sure the hand luggage is no larger than 45 x 40 x 25 cm. This size bag fits under the seat in front of you or in the luggage compartment above your head.

    If you would like to take hold luggage for your baby, you can book this quickly and easily via My Transavia. This is only possible before you have checked in.

  2. A car seat for using in your baby’s airplane seat so that your baby can travel comfortably. Your car seat may be no wider than 42 cm and no longer than 57 cm and must be a certified child restraint device. Unfortunately, we do not have any car seats on board.

    Approved certification labels:

    • UN Standard ECE R44-03 and 44-04
    • US FMVSS no. 213
    • Canadese CMVSS 213/123.1
    • Duitse TÜV/958-01/2001
    • Types approved by Transport Canada
    • Types approved by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
    • Types approved by the Joint Civil Aviation Authority (JAA)
    You are allowed to take along an inflatable car seat. Please note that your child is not allowed to sit in this car seat during take-off and landing, and when the seat belt sign is switched on during the flight.
  3. A collapsible (umbrella) buggy of max. 10 kg. You can take this with you to the gate, from where it will be transported as hold luggage.

    Please note: You can pick up your collapsible umbrella buggy from the baggage carousel after disembarking the aircraft.

Baby food on board

You may take as much baby food with you on board as your baby requires during the flight. You may take a maximum of 100 ml of boiled water (for mixing formula) in your hand luggage.

Tips for flying with a baby

  1. Make sure to give your baby a dummy or bottle during take-off and landing to reduce ear pain.

  2. We cannot boil water on board. But it is not a problem for us to heat up a bottle or baby food. We’d be happy to do this for you!
