About baskets, child seats, pushchairs, buggies and the rest

Children under the age of 2 years are not entitled to their own seat. If you would like to book a separate seat for your infant (0-2 years of age), please call:;;; +41 848 333593 to do so.

Baby basket

  • Baby baskets are cots for very small children up to 8 months of age, 11 kg in weight and a maximum of 70 cm height. Would you like to book a baby basket? They are available as follows subject to a reservation of the necessary seat:
  • in every flight class on long-haul flights
  • in Business Class on short- and medium-haul flights (first row only)

Advance booking is essential

  • We only have a limited number of baby baskets available, so be sure to book yours in plenty of time but at the latest 4 days prior to your departure. Although there is no charge for the basket, for technical reasons it can only be fitted in the first row of seats. Mandatory seat reservation for passengers travelling with a baby basket are regulated as follows:
  • 1 adult travelling with an infant with bassinet facility and another child/other children (up to 11yrs), the accompanying child/ren are entitled to seat reservation free of charge.
  • If 2 or more adults are travelling with an infant with bassinet facility, only the adult with the infant gets a free seat due to mandatory seating for the bassinet. All other passengers (adults and children) need to pay for their seats.

Child seats on board

If you have booked a seat for your infant and own a car seat that is also certified for air travel, just bring it with you. Your baby or infant will then also sit in its own seat for take-off and landing at the child's rate. The seat must face forward and be secured by the lap strap. Of course, the cabin crew will be pleased to help you secure the seat. Please make sure that your child is strapped into the seat properly.

Pushchair and buggy

If your pushchair or buggy collapses, then you can easily take it on the flight with you. Depending on your destination, it will either be returned to you when you disembark or (at the latest) on the baggage carousel. Pushchairs for two or more children take up a little too much space, but if you have one you can check it in as baggage. Added plus for parents: there is no charge for taking a pushchair or buggy.

If you like, you can hire a pushchair for your child at the airport in Zürich before you depart. You can use it from check-in to the gate, and then just leave it there. The pushchair is suitable for children from 0 to 4 years of age.
