Accompanied by an adult and not occupying a seat, an infant aged up to one year and 364 days is carried at 12% of the adult net fare This discount may not be available on promotional fares.
As it is a legal requirement for children over the age of two to travel in their own seat, passengers who are travelling with an infant who becomes two years old before their return flight, must ensure that they have a seat reserved for the return flight. There is no additional charge for this seat. The infant fare will apply for the entire journey.
Make your booking online as normal adding the infant to the whole itinerary. Once the booking is completed and you have a reference number, you will need to contact us to book a seat free of charge for the return flight where the infant is now travelling as a child of two years old. If for any reason there are no seats available on the flights you have chosen, we will assist you in choosing an alternative flight or offer a full refund.
