Children and Infants

Children love to fly, and Loganair is always pleased to welcome them on board. 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.

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 allows children to travel unaccompanied, though all arrangements should be made in advance. The child must be at least 5 years of age. They should be escorted until the flight departs, and an escort must meet the child at the airport of arrival. Unaccompanied minors will not be accepted on any multi sector bookings or connecting flights as carriers are unable to take responsibility in the case of a missed connection or extended delay.

You will be asked to complete an unaccompanied minor form either at the time of booking, or at check-in.
Loganair’s ground and cabin staff will do their utmost to ensure your family has an enjoyable flight. On arrival at the airport, our ground staff will be on hand to give you extra help if you need it, and families with small children will be invited to board first.

Loganair will cease to carry unaccompanied minors from 1st September Instead we’ll be launching a ‘drop off’ fare to allow parents or guardians to travel with a reduced cost same-day return ticket.


Loganair defines youths as those aged between 12-15. Those aged 16 and over are classified as adults.
