What is the difference between an infant and a child? Must my child have a seat?

NokScoot follows the same age definitions, regardless of the origin and destination. They are:

  • Infant: Between 8 days until 2 years old (not inclusive);
  • Child: Between 2 and 11 years old (inclusive);
  • Adult: 12 years and older.

Infants may be nursed in the arms of a parent or guardian throughout the flight. You do not need to purchase an extra seat for the infant. However, you may choose to purchase an additional seat for your infant and pay the adult fare, subject to infant limit availability. If a seat is purchased, please note that your infant must be restrained on your lap during taxi, take-off and landing. Special seat belts can be provided for infants in their own seats. If you would like to make arrangements for your infant, please contact our Call Centre.

Any passenger who is two years or older must occupy a seat, on their own ticket. Please note that child fares are the same as adult fares.

Important Note: NokScoot does not currently accept children travelling alone to any destination. Passengers up to 11 years old must travel with a supervising adult. Passengers aged between 12 and 15 years old (inclusive) may travel unaccompanied, with parent's letter of indemnity that must be produced at the time of check-in. Passengers aged 16 years and above may travel unaccompanied.
