About baskets, infant 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 (0)848 333 593 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.

Those guests who have made their booking via flyedelweiss.com, are kindly requested to contact our Service Center +41 (0)848 333 593 or services@flyedelweiss.com until latest 4 days prior to departure, to book the baby basket and reserve the necessary seats free of charge. All other guests are requested to contact their booking agent.

Child car seats on board

If you have booked a seat for your infant or child and own a car seat that is also certified for air travel, just bring it with you (please note, this is not permissible on our A330 and A340 aircraft in Business Class due to safety reasons). Your infant will then also sit in its own seat for take-off and landing at the child's rate. The seat must 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 infant is strapped into the seat properly.
