Travelling with Children
TRAVELLING WITH A CHILD OVER 2 YEARS OF AGE (INFANT)
Please note that any child 2 years or older requires a seat; therefore, a ticket must be purchased in his or her name.
Car seats for children
Car seats (no wider than 15.5 inches or 40 cm) may be used on Air Transat flights. Children under 18 kg (40 lbs) will be safer and more comfortable when secured in a car seat.
Make sure your car seat is in compliance with regulations:
Car seats manufactured in any other country are not approved for use on Air Transat flights.
Air Transat accepts AmSafe C.A.R.E.S child restraint system designed specifically for children between the ages of 1 and 4, weighing between 10-20 kg (22-44 pounds) and whose height is 100 cm (40 inches) or less.
Booster seats, harness or vest-type restraint systems for children
Booster seats or restraint systems for children cannot be used for air travel as they are not approved for use on board an aircraft by Transport Canada.
Baggage allowance for children
Infants travelling on an adult's lap do not have a baggage allowance; however, some baby and child equipment (1 stroller, 1 car seat) is accepted free of charge. Any additional and/or substituted item (such as a playpen, booster seat, additional car seats, etc.) exceeding your free checked baggage allowance will be subject to excess baggage charges.
