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.

Children between 2 and 11 years old

  • There is no limit on the number of children between 2 and 11 years travelling on board.
