Baggage

Infant baggage

Travelling with a little one? Children younger than two years are also given a free baggage allowance. 

Baggage allowance for infants

A child younger than two years of age on arrival back into the UK, who will be travelling on your lap, may bring three of the following items free of charge: 

  • 10 kg baggage allowance
  • a stroller/pushchair
  • a travel cot
  • a car seat (checked in to the hold)

If all four are required, one item would be part of any pre-purchased hold baggage weight allowance on the same booking. Please remember that an infant does not have a hand baggage allowance.

All other items would need to be part of any pre-purchased weight allowance on the same booking. A hand baggage allowance would apply if a seat has been booked.
