You are planning to fly with a baby?
If you're used to travel at the last minute, without much organization, you will have to review your strategy when travelling with your newborn. For airlines, a baby is considered as such until the age of 2.
First of all, if you want to fly with your baby before their 7 days, you must have a medical certificate. As every individual, your baby must carry a passport or an identity card. Depending on the destination and the airline chosen, the ticket price will be either totally free or of a value of 10% to 30% of the ticket for an adult.
For some companies you can choose to reserve a seat for your infant or to travel with him on your lap with a special belt. In case you book a seat, you can directly benefit from the weight of luggage for children; otherwise you will receive a cabin baggage weighing less than 12 kg and a checked baggage of 10 kg.
Regulations on liquid containers larger than 100ml will not apply for your baby's bottles. So you can bring with you everything you need for your child during the flight.
Good to know: some airports do not allow access for strollers for safety reasons.
Do a little yoga before the trip to relax before what can easily become a very challenging trip !
Do not forget your travel insurance to travel with peace of mind!
