I’m expecting a baby and it’s due to be born before I fly, what do I do?

If you’re expecting to have a baby before you fly and you want to buy a flight or have already bought your flight, you should contact the airline directly or contact us once the baby is born and we can notify the airline for you.

In some cases, you won’t need to buy a separate ticket for your baby, as some airlines don’t require babies to have individual seats and therefore fly free. However, other airlines will charge a percentage of the fare (usually around 10%) if you are flying with a baby.

Either way, it’s essential that the airline knows if you’re flying with a baby once it is born, so the appropriate measures are in place.
