Infants (under 2 years)
Most airlines define an infant as less than two years of age. If your child is under two, he or she can fly as a lap infant, meaning she or he will be seated in your lap for the entirety of the flight. When adding your baby as a traveler please select whether you would like your infant to occupy a seat or fly on your lap.
If didn't initially book your lap infant on your reservation, please reach out to Hopper Support to have them added to your reservation.
Children (2 years and older)
Once a child turns two, they are required to occupy a seat. You'll need to book them as a traveler on your initial purchase, as we are unable to add additional travelers to an existing bookings (except for lap infants!).
🛑Please note that passengers under the age of 18 may only book on Hopper if accompanied by another passenger 18 years of age or over.
Good to know
- If your child turns two during your vacation, you will need to purchase them a seat for the return leg of your trip.
- If you book a full seat for your infant (rather than in lap), you'll likely be charged for a full-priced ticket
- If you're flying domestically with a baby and they do not have a passport, you'll often be asked to provide a copy of the baby's birth certificate before boarding.
