Fares for infants and children

As a general rule, children up to 2 years old are not required to have their own seat and are allowed to travel on parents’ lap. An infant tickets costs 10% of the regular fare. Depending on the destination, taxes and fees may apply. Please note that only 1 baby per adult is accepted. You can choose to buy a seat for your baby at the reduced rates for children if any children’s rate is applicable.

If your child is older than 2 years or turns 2 while you are travelling, you will have to book a separate seat for him or her and book the children fare for the entire journey. Reduced rates apply for children aged 2-11 on most routes, depending on the travel class. Children turning 12 years en route need to be booked as adults for the entire journey.
