Minors

Travelling with minors can be simple. Air Europa provides you with all the information you need so that your family can travel with total comfort and peace of mind.

Children between 0 and 2 years old

Minors who have not reached the age of 2 on the date of the flight must travel in the same seat as the accompanying adult.

Menores de 0 a 2 años

Babies (under the age of 2) are entitled to 1 x 10 kg piece of hand luggage. Additionally. they can check in 1 x 10 kg piece of baggage in the hold, provided that an adult has purchased a fare that includes checked baggage. Furthermore, they can carry one of the following items:

  • A foldable pushchair when travelling with children up to 4 years old.
  • A baby carrier.
  • A baby car seat.

These last two items can be carried under the seat or in the luggage compartment, provided that they respect the maximum dimensions allowed in the cabin. Otherwise, this baggage will travel in the hold. 

The option to increase the weight of suitcases that exceed 10 kg to a maximum of 23 kg is available by paying EUR 30 / GBP 30 / 30 USD / CHF 30. If they are between 23 kg and 32 kg, the cost will be EUR 60 / GBP 60 / USD 60 / CHF 60. Additional baggage cannot be purchased on behalf of the baby.

Each adult can travel with a maximum of two children under 2 years old; in this case:

One child must travel in the same seat as the adult wearing a special safety belt provided by the Air Europa crew.

The other child must travel in an adjacent seat in an approved child seat. In the latter case, the seat price for children between 2 and 11 years old will apply.

A step-by-step guide to children traveling alone

If a child is traveling alone, there are some steps you need to take along each step of the journey.

Booking a flight for an unaccompanied minor isn't something you can do online. Instead, you can book at any Air Europa branch or via customer services. Each flight will have a maximum number of minors permitted to travel unaccompanied.

You can request an escort service at travel agencies, sales offices, or via customer services.

ID card, passport, vaccinations, entry procedures... We recommend that you check exactly which documents you need for the country's entry requirements.

To speed up the process and ensure you have the right documentation, please complete the travel form provided below and print one copy to be presented at the check-in desk. Our staff will then be responsible for distributing the forms to Air Europa staff.

Child data form

If you have any issues with the online form, you can download it in PDF format and fill it in by hand.

Air Europa will only accept unaccompanied minors on connecting flights with a layover time of no more than 5 hours.

You must obtain a boarding card at the airport's check-in desk. The child's companion will be provided with a temporary boarding pass enabling them to accompany the child to the boarding gate. If you don't accompany the child as far as the boarding gate, you must stay in the airport until the flight departs. 

You cannot check in online - you'll need to do it at the check-in desks.

Our crew will be there to make sure the child is safe and comfortable. They'll also make sure they arrive safely when they reach the destination airport.

The minor will be the last to leave the airplane when it arrives at its destination. A member of our crew will accompany them to arrivals where they'll meet the person responsible for pick-up.
