Families & children

Are you traveling as a family? Air France takes great care to ensure you are comfortable on board: special meals for infants and children, games, gifts, etc. Our cabin crew makes sure your flight will
be a truly pleasant experience!

Children 2 years and older benefit from tailored services such as special meals, gifts and entertainment options to make your trip a moment of well-being.

Reduced fares

In certain cases, children accompanied by an adult can receive fare reductions of up to:
  • 15% on domestic flights,
  • 33% on medium and long-haul flights

Pre-flight preparation

Most likely, your child will wish to bring along a small bag containing belongings. Prior to departure, consider helping pack familiar items that your child would like to have during flight, such as favorite books, stuffed animals, blanket, etc.
In addition, remember to bring a piece of candy or chewing gum to help reduce possible earaches during take-off and landing.
Practical advice
Prior to departure, remember to make sure that you have all the documents for infants that are required by the police, customs agents, and immigration officers of your destination country.

Strollers

You can transport a foldable stroller in the hold for your child at no extra charge.
A small foldable stroller (maximum size: 15 cm x 30 cm x 100 cm / 5.9 in x 11.8 in x 39.4 in) may also be accepted in the cabin* subject to availability in the overhead compartments.

* On long-haul flights, except between metropolitan France and Pointe-à-Pitre, Fort-de-France, Saint Martin, Cayenne, Réunion, Seychelles, Mauritius, Punta Cana, Havana, Santo Domingo.

Is your child traveling alone? Learn more about unaccompanied minors.

Travel companions

Children* must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18. However, travel companions may be younger than 18 years of age if they are the child's father, mother, or legal guardian.
The child and accompanying passenger must travel in the same cabin. If not, the child will be considered an unaccompanied minor (UM).

* Up to 12 years of age for flights in metropolitan France and flights to/from French overseas departments and territories, and up to 15 years of age for international flights.

Meals

On all flights with a duration of more than 2.5 hours, a meal adapted to the tastes and needs of your child is offered: bite-sized meat or fish for a simple, ready-to-eat meal!
This meal is served to children 3-8 years of age. For children ages 9-11, please remember to request this option when booking or purchasing your ticket, at least 24 hours before departure.

Gifts

On intercontinental flights, children will receive a set of gifts to make their trip enjoyable and fun. These gifts may include crayons, coloring books, games, and more.
They can also listen to music channels, play video games, and watch cartoons or children's movies. Children have
all they need for rest and entertainment!
Children's items may also be purchased through the onboard boutique: stuffed animals, inflatable airplanes, dolls, and more.
