Carrying the whole family or taking young passengers traveling alone on our wings to their destination is a great pleasure. From booking to landing, our services are prepared to provide safety and well-being to families and unaccompanied children who travel with us.
With all our care
Our smallest passengers, older than 7 days and less than 2 years old, may travel in an approved and homologated seat for air transport, which will be accommodated in the aircraft seat, benefiting from a children fare, or, alternatively, they can travel on the lap, where they must remain during the entire flight.
We offer a permanent accompany service for children from 5 to 11 years old traveling alone, from check-in to meeting the person who will receive them.
Parents can request our Unaccompanied Minor Service for passengers aged between 12 and 17.
We have special meals for special passengers! Meals for children and babies can be requested when booking the flight, and we will be happy to warm up bottles and baby food jars on board our planes.
During air travel, it is common for babies and children to experience some ear discomfort due to sudden changes in atmospheric pressure, especially during take-offs and landings.
Consider the expert recommendations from the pediatrician Dr. Catarina Dâmaso.
“During a flight, there are several times when our ear is subject to pressure changes, leading to the typical sensation of “full and popping ears”. In children, this sensation can be manifested by discomfort, constant crying, and pain (especially babies and young children). In these children, these symptoms are more frequent due to the immaturity of the compensation system and the anatomy of the structures involved in the regulation of this pressure (Eustachian tubes).
To prevent this situation, it is recommended that babies are breastfeeding, drinking from the bottle (preferably in seated position) or that they keep the pacifier. Older children (over 3 years old) can chew gum or candies, especially at take-off and landing.
If your child has an ear infection, you may be advised to delay the flight until it resolves to avoid worsening pain and a possible rupture of the eardrum.
If the pain or discomfort persists for longer periods after the flight, the child should be seen by a doctor.”
