Family and Pregnancy Travel

Heaps of families fly with us and Tigerair wants to make travelling with kids as easy as possible for all involved. There are a few rules to keep in mind.

There are a lot of families that fly with us and it's our aim to make travelling with children as easy as possible.

Any adult fare travelling with an infant under 2 (two) years is permitted 1 (one) free Check-In item. Infants under 2 (two) years of age will not need to purchase an adult fare to sit on the guardians lap. A fee of $30.00 applies per child under 2 (two) per flight segment for domestic travel.

Every child travelling between the age of 2 (two) years and 6 (six) is entitled to 1 (one) free Check-In item. They are required to occupy a seat onboard our flights and the applicable fare, taxes, fees and charges will apply.

Acceptable check-In items for adults travelling with infants under 2 as well as children between the ages of 2 and 6 include:

  • Strollers or pushers
  • Porta-cots
  • Infant car seats
  • Portable high-chairs
  • Any further requirements will need to be purchased as part of Check-in Baggage.

Infant equipment, including but not limited to prams, buggies and car seats can be carried in the hold of the aircraft. Tigerair are prepared to carry one such item on a 'Limited Release' (i.e. entirely 'at your own risk' for damage or delay) basis for free. You may therefore wish to ensure that you have suitable private insurance cover in force for such items.

Customers aged between 12 (twelve) to 15 (fifteen) years of age may be accepted for carriage unaccompanied on request by a parent or legal guardian at the point of check-in. Parents/legal guardians must remain at the airport until the departure of the flight. Prevailing laws of each country may differ in respect of the carriage of unaccompanied Children and Young Persons. Persons aged 15 years and above may travel unaccompanied.

Escort and special facilities are not available. Children below 12 (twelve) years of age must be accompanied on the same reservation by a passenger 15 (fifteen) years of age or above, or a parent or legal guardian, who will take full responsibility for the child. Proof of parent/legal guardian status must be shown at check-in.

We are unable to accept newborns less than 7 days old for travel.


Travelling during pregnancy

Please view the below information surrounding pregnancy requirements for travelling on Tigerair including where medical certificates from your Doctor or Midwife are required:

The following details must be included on your medical certificate from your doctor or midwife and must be dated no more than 10 days prior to travel for each sector flown:

  • The estimated due date;
  • Single or multiple pregnancy;
  • The absence of complications; and
  • Your fitness to fly for the duration of the flight/s booked.

You will be required to carry the medical certificate so this can be sighted by our Ground Services team at check-in and by Cabin Crew during boarding.
