Do you offer Infant, Children, Unaccompanied Minor, Companion, Student, Military, Government, or Senior air fares?
Children, and infant, fares can be booked on CheapTickets.hk. Unaccompanied children under the age of 18, Student, Senior, Companion, Military, and Government fares are not offered through CheapTickets.hk. If you require one of those options, it will be necessary for you to contact the airline directly for information and booking those passenger types.
Do I need to buy a ticket for my infant when flying internationally?
If you are traveling with an infant (a child less than 24 months of age for the duration of the trip) in your lap, a ticket must be purchased.
Most airlines allow infants under the age of 24 months, at the time of originating departure, to travel on the lap of an adult passenger. Only one infant is allowed to travel per adult when not occupying a seat. Generally the fare for an infant not occupying a seat is 10% of the base fare paid by the accompanying adult plus applicable taxes and fees.
If an infant becomes two years of age during the trip, some airlines require charging the applicable child fare on all flights following the date when the infant became two. When applicable half the fare will be charged at the infant rate and half at the child rate. When this occurs, the child will be assigned a seat for the segments where the child fare applies.
In some rare cases, if the infant becomes two years of age during the trip, the full child fare will be charged and a seat will be assigned for the entire trip.
No more than 2 infants can be held per row of seats.
A passport is required for infants traveling to foreign destinations.
Some airlines will provide a bassinet for infants. These may not be available on all flights and must be arranged directly with the airline.
