Airline Tot Policies Compared

This infographic provides an overview of the major airline policies for flying with tots under 2 (c/o Skyscanner’s collated data). As terrifying a prospect as flying with a tot under 2 can be if you’ve not done so before, it really is the golden period of travel due to the many allowances that airlines make to accommodate your wee one so make the most of it!

By far the most economical approach is to book your wee one as a lap child only with no assigned seat. This is what we did for all our flights and whilst we were not always so lucky, if the flight wasn’t fully booked, we were always prioritised for a spare seat.
