Infant and Child Care
At Jet Airways we are committed to make our younger guests travel experience enjoyable and comfortable.
Young guests between 2 and 12 years of age (at the time of travel) will be considered as children. Guests up to 2 years will be
considered as infants and need to be accompanied with an adult at all times throughout their journey. You may request a special meal for children at the
time of booking or at least 12 hours prior to departure.
In compliance with in-flight safety regulations, our crew will ensure that every guest travelling with an infant is provided with an infant life jacket and infant seat belt on board, prior to take-off and the same will be collected after landing.
Guests are reminded that any damage or tampering of the infant life jacket, or its removal from the aircraft without authorization of a cabin crew member, is strictly prohibited and is a punishable act.
We provide a diaper-changing table in lavatories on all flights except those operated by ATR aircraft. Our cabin crew will guide you to
the lavatory equipped with this facility.
