Children's baggage allowance 

Our child fares have the same baggage allowance as adults. Infants do not get a checked-in bag, but can have one piece of carry-on. Both fares allow you to bring a stroller and a car seat for no extra charge. Please check with other airlines if they're part of your journey as well. Find out more
