Traveling with Children

Traveling with children can be a challenge. Air Inuit offers special assistance for passengers who travel with children or infants and for expectant mothers.

Children under 2 years of age

  • Children under two years of age at the time of travel fly for free on Air Inuit. Be aware, however, that your infant must travel on your lap during the entire flight, including taxi, takeoff and landing.
  • Be sure to pack enough food, diapers, and everything you would normally need to tend to your child’s basic needs.

Children 2-11 years of age

  • Children over 2 years of age must occupy their own seat for safety reason and must be accompanied by an adult older than 16 years of age.
  • To ensure your child’s safety during the flight, you are permitted to check in and use a Transport Canada child/infant restraint system or approved car seat at no extra charge.

Children under 14 years of age

  • We will do our best to facilitate the assignment of a seat to a child who is under the age of 14 years in close proximity to a parent, guardian or tutor at no additional charge.
  • We encourage you to take advantage of our pre-boarding, in order to be seated close together as the majority of our flights are operated without seat assignment.

Unaccompanied minors (UM)

Is your child traveling alone? If so, Air Inuit staff will provide assistance at the airport, on board and at connecting stations, if necessary, to ensure your child’s safety and comfort throughout the trip.
  • Children 5-11 years of age traveling alone must be registered as unaccompanied minors. The transport of unaccompanied minors must be declared upon making reservations and entails a supervision fee of $52.50 - $57.49 (taxes included).
  • Unaccompanied minors are attended to and from check-in until they reach the person awaiting them at their destination. A special (UM) handling tag must be completed at the time of check-in, and be carried by the child at all times while in our care.
To make travel arrangements for unaccompanied minors, please contact Air Inuit reservations..
