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.

Age definitions

  • 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.
