Air Italy pay particular attention to all minors travelling on board their flights to guarantee their security and safety.

Young children up to 2 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or by an adult.
On board Air Italy flights, each adult passenger can travel accompanied by one infant only (children up to 2 years of age). Therefore, to travel with 2 infants, a second adult is required on board. Infants do not occupy seats since they travel on the lap of the adult that accompanies them and are entitled to l0 kg of baggage allowance. If the infant reaches 2 years of age while travelling (that is, on departure, he was under 2 years of age, on returning, he has already reached the age of 2), it will be necessary to book a seat on the flight from the date of his birthday. Therefore he will charged an Infant fare for the outbound trip and a Child fare ( from 2 to 11 years old ) for the inbound trip. Bookings have to be made considering the age of the Infant/Child while travelling. On intercontinental flights, it is possible to request a baby bassinet for infant up to 10kgs, by contacting in advance our direct email address or our Call Centre. The service, subject to availability, is delivered on Bulk Seats Area at the cost of 65€/100C$.
