Do babies need to buy tickets to fly? What should I pay attention to when flying with my baby

We know that infants don't need to pay for many means of transportation, so what about infants flying without paying? The following editor has sorted out the things that infants should pay attention to when they fly to buy tickets and take airplanes. Let's have a look.

Do you need to buy a ticket for a baby to fly

A baby needs to buy a ticket to fly. According to the relevant provisions of the civil aviation department, 14-2-year-old infants need to buy Infant tickets for flying, the price is 10% of the full adult ticket price, free of airport construction fee and fuel surtax, but no onboard seats are provided. If you need a separate seat, you should buy a child ticket for your baby. For children aged 2 to under 12, the fare is 50% of the total fare for adults, taking up a seat alone. Each adult can only bring one child to enjoy this kind of ticket price. When buying the ticket, they need to show the birth certificate or household register that can prove the baby's age.

The number of infants that can be guaranteed on each flight is limited. Infant tickets must be issued together with adult passengers of the same flight, and cannot be purchased independently. Especially in the period of large passenger flow, such as holidays, parents must purchase adult tickets at the same time, put forward the demand of buying baby tickets to the ticket office. If you are unable to issue a ticket, you must call the customer service number of each airline in advance to apply for a baby ticket, or confirm with the airline in advance whether you can issue a ticket. Each ticket office is also responsible for handling the application of infant ticket for passengers in advance. For the ticket office that cannot open infant ticket, passengers can choose to complain to the airline or change a ticket office.

What should babies pay attention to when flying

1. Choose the right seat

The window seat is far from the aisle, so it's not convenient to enter or leave. Although it's convenient to sit on the aisle seat, you need to be more careful to avoid the baby's head, limbs and other body parts being hit by passing service cars or pedestrians. When choosing a seat, if the baby does not occupy the seat, it is better to choose a seat by the window and an aisle. With luck, if the middle seat is empty, you can take it easy.

2. Consider additional activity space

When selecting the seat, you can choose the bulkhead row at the front of the aircraft. This part of the seat has more activity space than other parts of the seat, so it is more convenient to take care of the baby.

3. Good time for baby to fly

Whether it's a new baby or a baby, their adaptability is very strong, they can easily change their sleep time and meal time. A few weeks after birth, the baby's sleep at night is more stable and steadier than that during the day. If you and your baby can both fall asleep on the plane, night flight is a better time to fly.

4. Nurse or snack your baby during takeoff and landing

Feed the baby with milk or snacks during takeoff and landing, and let the baby swallow fully. The action works the same as chewing gum in adults.

5. Don't stop baby crying

If you can be sure that your baby's crying is not caused by hunger or thirst, don't stop it forcibly. Crying is good for opening the eustachian tube. When the problem that makes him uncomfortable is solved, the crying will stop naturally

6. Don't let the baby sleep when the plane takes off and lands

Remember not to let your baby sleep when the plane takes off or lands, because the possibility of eardrum injury is greatly increased during sleep, so you must wake your baby up from sleep.
