Travelling as a family

Air Corsica provides specific assistance and supervision services to make travelling as a family, for children and pregnant women easier. 

Organise your journey with complete peace of mind.

Travelling with a baby

Travelling with a baby

Your baby (under 2 years old) travels free on the lap in metropolitan France and benefits from a reduced fare on international flights.

For your and your baby’s comfort, you can also choose to book a seat for your baby. Your baby benefits from the child’s fare.

To take advantage of our services and make your flight more pleasant, please notify us when booking that you will be travelling with a baby.

Accompanying a baby

  • During the journey, the baby* must be accompanied by an independent adult who is at least 18 years of age and who is related to the baby*.
  • An adult passenger may accompany two babies (under two years of age) on the condition that one of the two must occupy an individual seat reserved at the child’s fare, and must be strapped into an approved infant  car seat or carrier.  For an adult travelling with two babies, the booking can only be made by telephone on 0 825 35 35 35 (€0.20 incl. VAT/min) and, from abroad, on 00 33 4 95 20 95 20 (n ° not surcharged), 7 days a week from 8:00 to 20:00 .

Exceptions: the accompanying adult may be under the age of 18 if he or she is the child's father, mother or legal guardian.

Priority boarding

Practical advice:

  • Please remember to ensure you have all of the documents for your infant required by the police, customs agents and immigration officers at your destination country.
  • Travel is not recommended for infants in the seven days following birth.
