Our guide to flight compensation for infants and children

Read article


Taking to the skies with a little one in tow can be a daunting prospect for any parent. From packing endless supplies of diapers to keeping tiny travelers entertained, flying with babies presents its own unique set of challenges. But what happens when unforeseen circumstances disrupt your journey, leaving you stranded at the airport with a fussy infant in hand? Fear not, for there may be recourse in the form of baby flight compensation.

Understanding your passenger rights first

When it comes to flight disruptions, many parents may not be aware that they have rights, especially concerning compensation for their little travelers. Whether it's a flight delay, a flight cancellation, or denied boarding, airlines may be obligated to provide compensation under certain circumstances.

Delving into the details

So, what exactly constitutes a valid reason for baby flight compensation? While each situation may vary, common causes include flight delays exceeding a certain threshold, flight cancellations without prior notice, or being denied boarding due to overbooking. In such cases, parents may be entitled to financial compensation or alternative arrangements provided by the airline.

Always look through the policies

Securing compensation for a disrupted flight involving infants or children may seem like a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be an uphill battle. Begin by familiarizing yourself with the airline's policies regarding compensation for families traveling with young children. Keep detailed records of your journey, including boarding passes, receipts for baby essentials purchased during the delay, and any correspondence with the airline.

Advocating for your passenger rights

In the event of a flight disruption, don't hesitate to advocate for your rights as a parent. Be proactive in seeking assistance from airline staff, who may be able to offer accommodation, meal vouchers, or alternative travel arrangements. If necessary, escalate the issue to higher authorities within the airline or regulatory bodies tasked with overseeing passenger rights.
