What do I need to know if I am flying with children and infants?

 Airlines have different travel policies for adults, children and infants. Those under the age of 2 years at date of travel are classed as an infant. Passengers aged between 2 and 12 years are classed as children and anyone who is aged 12 years or over is classed as an adult.


Are flights for children and infants included in the cost of the cruise?

Economy class flights from/to the UK are included for the whole party, including children and infants. Please be advised that all children and infants will need to pay any additional air supplements for regional airports.


Aircraft seating

Airlines will aim to seat children and infants close to their parents or guardians. It is recommended that seats are pre-booked for your full whole party to avoid disappointment.

As we do not offer Charter Flights for our Cunard Fly-Cruises, you will normally be booked as part of a Scheduled or Group booking. In regards to seating for children and infants;

  • Children are always allocated seats on flights. Seating for infants varies by airline, route and ticket type.
    Seating for infants varies by airline, route and ticket type. 
  • Scheduled airlines will allow infants to travel on an adults lap for the duration of the flight (adults must be over 15 years or age)
  • Adults can only hold one infant, any additional infants will need a seat.
  • To enquire regarding infant seats on Scheduled flights, please advise at the time of booking or call our Customer Contact Centre if you already have an existing booking.
  • Please refer to the airline’s individual website for information on car seats, sky cots and bassinets.
