Travelling with children

Whether you’re going on a family vacation or travelling to see family, we’ll help keep the kids happy and the adults relaxed—with entertainment for all ages, meals for the little ones, and so much more.

When you fly with young children, all passengers in the same booking can select standard seats in advance for free. That way, the entire family will get to sit together and the holiday bonding can begin. Those with infants will also enjoy priority boarding—for more time to settle down before take-off.


Flying with kids is a little less stressful when they’re entertained. We know—that’s why the young ones get their own category on KrisWorld, as well as a magical colouring experience. And if they’ve had too much screen time, there’s also the activity pack to keep them occupied.


Upon request*, your infant will be served age-appropriate meals that are easy to chew and digest. Travelling with older children? Let them pick between Western, Asian, and vegetarian options. The little one is a fussy eater? No problem—you are more than welcome to bring your own food on board.

*Make your request online via Manage Booking. Do note that there is no meal service on flights between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.

We believe it’s every mother’s right to be able to nurse their infant or pump on board. You can choose to do so at your seat if you prefer—our crew will be happy to provide you with an extra blanket for added privacy.

*Both manual and electric breast pumps are allowed on board. However, do ensure that its batteries meet the approved guidelines.


For a fuss-free holiday, infants will be entitled to check in up to 10kg* of baggage, or a piece of baggage up to 23kg/32kg*, along with a fully-collapsible stroller and car seat.

Alternatively, you can carry a compact, foldable lightweight stroller on board the cabin. If you’re departing from Singapore, you’ll also enjoy an additional 6kg of cabin baggage allowance for breast milk, infant food, and baby amenities. If you're departing from or transiting through other countries, get in touch with your local Singapore Airlines office for the country-specific restrictions.

If you have a Scoot flight in your itinerary, please note that all Scoot flights will require the stroller to be checked in at the aerobridge if there is no space in the cabin compartment. Checked baggage allowance for infants are not included on Scoot flights. 


To fly with your infant or child on Singapore Airlines, you must book their ticket together with your adult ticket in a single transaction. Each infant must also be accompanied by an adult who’s at least 18 years old.

In special cases where only one adult is available to travel with two infants, one of the infants will be required to use an approved child car seat on a separate passenger seat while the other an infant seat belt on the adult’s lap. Please contact your local Singapore Airlines office for assistance.
