We care about our most demanding passengers! Here is some important information, advice and tips to make traveling with the very young easier.

Offering the best for our youngest passengers

Learn how to prepare for your trip with your baby or child, what you can carry on board and how we can help. 
Follow our recommendations and instructions. 
 
Have a good trip with your baby or child!

When booking a flight, each adult can only take one child aged between 2 and 11 years old and one infant aged less than 2 years old or only one infant aged less than 2 years old.

The hold and cabin baggage allowances for children (aged from 2 to 11 years) is the same as the allowance for adults. Infants (under the age of 2) have a 10kg baggage allowance, except when traveling tap|discount. You may only carry one piece of hold baggage when traveling tap|discount, which may be one of the following: folding baby buggies, baby chair, or basket.

We do not recommend traveling with new-born infants during the first seven days after birth. In an emergency situation, please contact us so our medical services can assess the situation.

Priority boarding

Whenever your aircraft is parked at a boarding bridge, and you are traveling with children (under the age of 2), you may board first to give you more time to stow your baggage and take your seats.

Strollers

Your baby can remain in the stroller until you reach the door of the aircraft. TAP will take care of your stroller and return it to you when you reach your destination.


Recommendations

  • On long trips, choose an overnight flight so your children can sleep during the flight.
  • Take their favorite blanket or teddy bear on board so they feel more secure.
  • Bring toys to entertain them during the trip.
  • Walk around the airport with the children while you are waiting to board.
  • Be among the first to board the aircraft so it’ll be easier to get settled in.
