    • 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.

    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 department can assess the situation.


    The carry-on 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.
