Our ground and cabin staff are trained to help young people – and those flying with them – to enjoy their flight. Loganair hopes the following information will help put your mind at ease when planning a trip with young children.
- Infants are those up to 2 years.
- Children are those 2-11 inclusive
- Youths are those 12-15 inclusive
- Those 16 and over are classified as adults.
Travelling with infants
Infants, who have not reached their second birthday and are carried on their parent’s lap, do not pay an air fare, though taxes are applicable at some of the airports Loganair serves.
An infant aged between 6 months and under 2 years, may be carried in their own forward facing, approved car seat, though a child fare will apply for the booked seat. Loganair does not provide car seats
Children aged between 2 and 11 inclusive, travelling with their parents, will receive a 33% discount on the appropriate fare (taxes/fees/charges are not discounted)
Children Travelling Solo
Loganair no longer allows children to travel unaccompanied, due to child welfare issues. We appreciate this may cause some inconvenience, and we thank you for understanding that child welfare is a matter we take very seriously.
Instead we’ll be launching a ‘drop off’ fare to allow parents or guardians to travel with a reduced cost same-day return ticket. Please contact the call centre on 0344 800 2855 for more information.
Youths Travelling Solo
If a child aged between 12 and 15 is travelling on their own, please be aware that they will be booked as an adult, and therefore will be making their way through departure and arrival airports and boarding their flight(s) without a chaperone. Loganair cannot accept responsibility for the young person. The parent/guardian should ensure that the young person carries with them at all times the necessary documentation and has the ability to communicate with their parent/guardian and/or the person collecting them at the destination. We recommend that the parent or guardian accompanying children to the airport waits until their flight departs before leaving the terminal.
A youth 12-15 pays the adult fare and the booking should be made via Loganair’s call centre on 0344 800 2855. A youth is exempt from paying the Government’s Air Passenger Duty. Loganair offers Young Scot fares for members of the Young Scot program (12-25 year olds). Ask a member of the call centre for more details.
