You're welcome to use your own child safety restraint system (CRS) on board our flights, provided that the restraint systems are certified and marked as such.
There's no charge for the use of a child restraint system, but since the CRS must be attached to a passenger seat, a child ticket must be purchased, even for children under the age of 2.
As a rule, a window seat is the preferred location and the accompanying adult must sit next to the child.
