Minors on board

The child up to 2 years of age does not have a seat on board, but must travel on the lap of an adult. You therefore benefit from a lower rate and a special baggage allowance for the free transport of your essentials (stroller, baby bottle, diapers, etc.) up to a maximum of 5 kg. The child from 2 to 12 years, despite having the right to a reduced rate (about 67% of the adult) and a baggage allowance equal to that of an adult, is entitled to a seat entirely for himself.

All airlines operating in Italy must guarantee, from the booking / purchase stage of the air ticket, children between the ages of 2 and 12 traveling with their parents or with at least one accompanying adult in the same class, assignment of seats close to the parents or accompanying person, at no additional cost. Where this is not possible, children must be seated in the same row of seats or no more than one row of seats away from the accompanying person.

A similar guarantee must be ensured for persons with disabilities or persons with reduced mobility (PRM) who are assisted by an accompanying person.

In case of ascertainment of the violation of the aforementioned provisions, ENAC will proceed with the imposition of sanctions against the airlines, pursuant to the provisions of art. 7 of Legislative Decree no. 69 of 27 January 2006 on Emergency measure for the adoption of the Technical Regulations for the allocation of seats for minors (2 – 12 years) and for the disabled and persons with reduced mobility (PRM) close to parents and / or carers regarding the priority and assistance to be reserved for people with reduced mobility and unaccompanied children.
