9 tips for flying with children

How it works

Until your child is over two years of age, you may not need to buy an extra ticket.

For families who travel during the holidays, children can not only make things more complicated, they can make them a lot more expensive, too. The good news is that as long as your child is under 2 years old and you keep him or her on your lap for the entire flight, you won’t need to buy an extra ticket. However, if you want your child secured in a FAA approved child restraint device, you will have to buy him or her a ticket at any age.
