- Definition: infants are defined as being under 2 years old (on the boarding date).
- Newborn infants, who are more than 14 days old and accompanied by adults, can travel on our company’s flights. For healthy concerns, we do not accept newborn infants within 14 days old for any flight under any circumstance.
- We provide a limited number of bassinets for infants in-flight (except model A321neo). Bassinets are designed and can be used only for infants measuring less than 71cm/28 inches and weighing less than 11kg/24.2 pounds.
- Passengers travelling with infants have priority to sit in the bulkhead seat that has more space to place the bassinet.
- We encourage you to request for a bassinet when you book an infant ticket, as only a limited number of bassinets and bulkhead seats are available on board and offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
- If an infant travels with an adult and does not occupy a seat, the infant will be charged the infant fare.
- If one adult travels with two infants, one child fare ticket must be purchased for an occupied seat.(please contact CI’s local office or travel agency to purchase such tickets) The infant must sit in a safety seat. Please refer to the Child Safety Seat below for more instructions about the specifications and the usage of the safety seat.
We use the term "child" or "children" to refer to travelers who are 2 years old or older, but under 12 years of age. Child fare tickets must be purchased for children who travel on our flights. Children must also be accompanied by an adult traveler. Adult fare applies for children who are 12 years of age or older.
