Families and children

Good to know

  • Children older than two must have their own seat and travel on a child ticket.

  • Only if you have booked a seat for an infant then you can bring a car seat on board at no extra cost.

  • If you're traveling with two infants, you can have one on your lap and the other in a seat beside you.

On your lap or in a car safety seat

  • When you fly with an infant, he or she must sit on your lap. In this instance, flight attendants will provide you with a safety belt for the child before take-off.

  • You can also book a separate seat for your infant. The seat has the same price as for a child age 2–11. You need to bring your own child safety seat onboard.

    • The child safety seat must be forward-facing and is secured in the seat next to you.

    • To reserve a seat for a child safety seat, please contact SAS Customer Service.

Baby bassinet

  • You can book a bassinet at no cost for flights with SAS to/from Asia and the US. If you use a baby bassinet, your child may weigh no more than 11 kg. The length of the basket is 72 cm. The number of bassinets is limited on each flight.

  • To request a baby bassinet or to make a seat reservation for your infant, please contact SAS Customer Service.

Changing tables

There is at least one changing table (located in the toilet) on each SAS aircraft.

We always ensure before departure that children sit together with an adult included in the booking.
