    • On long-haul flights, choose an overnight trip so that children sleep during the flight.
    • Take their favourite blanket or teddy on board so they feel more comfortable.
    • Bring toys to entertain them during the trip.
    • Walk with the children around the airport, while waiting to board.
    • Be among the first to board the aircraft so it is easier to get settled in.

    Newborn babies 

    Air travel is not recommended during the first 7 days of life.
    In emergencies, TAP must be contacted so that its medical services can assess the situation.


    The hand baggage and checked baggage allowance for children (aged from 2 to 12) is the same as the baggage allowance for adults.

    The baggage allowance for babies (2 years and under) is different. If this applies to you, be aware you can take your baby’s food for consumption on the plane during the flight. 

    For full information about checked baggage, see here or use the baggage simulator to find out what you are allowed to take with you.
