Traveling with children and infants

If you are traveling with a child or an infant you are required to present proof of age for the children under the age of 18. This age proof can be a birth certificate or school certification. For families that are traveling with children under 2 years old can ask to board early at the gate. Only 1 carry-on diaper bag per child flying with an adult is allowed.

Kids are divided in two broad categories at American Airlines


Children are kids who are of 2yrs or older. Children are required to have their own seat, a ticketed adult fare. The children who are under the age of 5yrs can’t travel alone in any circumstances. If you don’t choose seats in Main Cabin or Basic Economy, the airlines will assign seats a few days after you buy your tickets so children under 15 are seated in the vigilance of at least 1 adult they’re traveling with.

Infants (under 2 years)

Infants as young as 2 days old are welcomed at American Airlines Flights. However, if you’re traveling with an infant less than a week’s age your Doctor will be required to fill out a passenger medical form before your flight. Infants must be accompanied by a major that is 16 years or older or by the infant’s parent in the same cabin.

Seating options for infants:

Traveling on the lap of the Passengers (lap child): A parent or guardian (Must be 16 years or older) may hold the infant on their lap. The information about the infant must be included in the reservation by calling American Airlines reservations. Percentage of adult fare and international taxes and may apply.

In a reserved seat: If the infant is traveling in their seat, the parent must buy a ticket. If the infant is not able to travel without child safety seat than parents or guardians must use a safety seat approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The seatbelt of the infant must be securely fastened during taxi, takeoff, landing and whenever the ‘fasten seatbelt’ sign is on.

Safety seat requirements

The child safety seat can’t be used in the rows on either side of an exit row; window seats are preferred. Choose direction appropriate for the size of the child to install the safety seat. Install the seat according to the given instructions on the label. Assure that the child must remain in the child safety seat with the harness fastened during takeoff, landing and whenever the ‘fasten seatbelt’ sign is on. Parent or guardian must have bought a seat for the child, or a seat must be available next to you. If an adjoining or unoccupied, the seat is not available, the gate crew member will check the safety seat to your final destination.
