Booking a Reservation for Your Infant or Child

When travelling with your little one (or a few), it’s important to know all the details when booking a reservation for your infant or child. Here you’ll helpful information when booking a ticket for your child, from lapheld infants to travelling with young adults.

Infants (7 days to under age 2)

Infants must be 7 days or older to travel on a Porter flight. You must have a medical clearance certificate issued by a physician to present at Check-In for any infant less than 7 days old.

An adult 16 years or older, can travel with only one infant, and must not be seated in an emergency exit row of the aircraft. Porter can accommodate a maximum of 7 infants per flight on board our Dash 8-400 aircraft and a maximum of 10 per flight on board our E195-E2 aircraft. If you are travelling with an infant, you cannot also travel with your pet or as an attendant to a traveller with a disability.

If you are travelling with an infant under the age of 2, you can choose between two options:

Purchase a paid seat

Travel with the infant seated in your lap

Children (2 to 11 years old)

All children over 2 years old and younger than 12 are required to have a purchased seat at a full fare and must be accompanied by an adult older than 16 years of age.
