Travelling with a baby

You may fly with your newborn as early as seven days after birth. Babies younger than seven days old require an attest from their family doctor that they are fit to travel.

The right travel documents

If you want to fly on holiday with your baby or toddler, they must have their own passport (depending on the destination, their own identity card may be sufficient). For this reason, you should apply to the relevant authorities for the necessary documents plenty of time before the start of your journey.

Special entry requirements for children

In many cases, children travelling alone or with only one parent require an authorisation from the parents or the parent who is not present. If there is no such document, the authorities can refuse entry or exit. In some cases, the airline can also be fined. Edelweiss reserves the right to pass on such fines to the parties responsible.

Special regulations apply for citizens of South Africa, Brazil, and the Dominican Republic. Please check the regulations for persons under 18 years of age travelling from Brazil or the Dominican Republic.
