Seats for Children

Your little ones are welcome onboard and will love our child seats – no matter how wriggly they are.

While your children enjoy their dedicated inflight entertainment, they’ll be comfy and safe in our seats designed just for them.

The seats are available on every international flight and can be used in any cabin and are suitable for new-born babies up to children weighing 20kg (44lb) or measuring 100cm (40”) tall. To ensure you get a child seat, just buy a flight at the child fare - though you should note we'll need at least 12 hours' notice to ensure a child seat is available.

Children too large to fit a child seat will still pay the child fare.

Please note that infant child seats are not available on Little Red (UK domestic) flights. 

You won’t be able to bring your own booster seat onboard, but if you need special support seating for disabled children, take a look at our information on support seating.

Planning your seating

Young passengers in child seats will need to be accompanied by a guardian aged at least 16 who must be seated next to the child in the Economy and Premium Economy cabins. In Upper Class, the guardian must be seated immediately behind the child.

One guardian may accompany two children using child seats providing the adult is seated between the two children in the same seat row segment in Economy or Premium Economy.

In our Upper Class cabins, the second child may be seated either directly across from or immediately in front of the guardian.

To check the availability of child seats on your flight and to book, call our reservations team on 0844 874 7747.
