Booking your child’s ticket

Find out how we classify children, where to book their ticket and much more.

What you need to know

  • Children under 2 years of age (referred to as infants) can travel sitting on the lap of an adult for a reduced fare. See our Fees and Charges table.

  • Children over 2 years of age or infants taking a seat will be charged the standard fare quoted at the time of booking.

  • Infants two weeks and younger are not accepted for travel.


The names of the travelling infant or child must be stated exactly as they are in the child’s travel documents. An error in the spelling of the child's name could result in the child being refused carriage.


Where to book your child’s flight

A booking made for a child or infant is done in the same way as for a normal fastjet ticket:

  • Online on your desktop

  • Online on your mobile

  • By contacting our call centre*

  • At one of our sales offices*

  • At a travel agent for an additional administration fee


*Any booking or payment made through the call centre or one of our sales offices will incur a service fee per booked passenger.
