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 2-11 years) is the same as that for adults. If you are traveling with a child aged between 2 and 5 years, you can still carry your stroller (fully folded) or child seat, when used in flight, completely free of charge.

The hold baggage for children under the age of two is one 10Kg item and the sum of the 3 dimensions shall not exceed 115cm / 45in (when traveling on tap|basic, tap|classic, tap|plus, tap|executive or tap|top executive) in addition to a folded stroller, child seat or basket. If traveling on tap|discount, you can only carry a folded stroller, child seat or basket. Find out more information about hold baggage here.
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.

Note: If you already have a reservation and wish to add a baby, you must do it through the TAP Contact Center.

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.


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.


  • 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.
