Infant on Lap
- Children under the age of 2 can travel free as a "lap child"
- You must, however, inform Alaska Airlines that you will be traveling with an infant on your lap.
- Lap infants are not eligible for meals.
- Only one lap child is allowed per adult.
- You must pay full fare if you child/Infant occupy own seat
For Domestic flights
No taxes are applicable on domestic flights for lap infants. All standard taxes are applicable on infant seat fares. A $7 (USD) immigration fee is applicable when an infant is traveling as a lap infant from either Canada or Mexico.
For International destination
Lap infants traveling to an international destination (outside of North America) must be ticketed at 10% of the accompanying adult's fare. This does not guarantee them a seat. Infants can travel as lap infants for free (limit one lap infant per accompanying adult). If there is an empty seat available on that flight, the infant may occupy that seat for no extra charge.
Turning 2 on Trip
If a child turns two en route, a ticket must be purchased for all segments on which the child will be two.
Infants traveling on a regular fare are strongly recommended to be secured in an appropriate child restraint system (CRS). Lap infants sharing a seat with their parent may bring a child restraint seat on board provided there is an empty seat available for the infant. If the flight is full, the car seat will be checked at the gate using a claim-at-gate tag. The car seat will be returned to you at the gate upon arrival.
All child restraint systems must bear the following two required labels:
1. This restraint system conforms to all applicable federal motor vehicle safety conditions.
2. This restraint is certified for use in motor vehicles and aircraft. (in red lettering) (NOTE: Labels that indicate U.S. or Foreign Government approval or show the seat was manufactured under the standards of the United nations are also valid.)
A customer traveling with a lap infant may have one diaper bag in addition to the standard carry-on policy allowance. A seated (ticketed) infant would follow the standard carry-on policy allowance.
An adult traveling with a lap infant may check the infant's child restraint seat and/or stroller free of charge in addition to the regular baggage allowance. These items may be checked at the gate using a claim-at-gate tag if preferred.

Health and Vaccination Requirements
All pets crossing state borders, with the exception of guide dogs, are required by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to have a valid health certificate issued by a licensed veterinarian within 30 days of travel. If an animal is being transported by a breeder, dealer, or research facility, then the health certificate must have been issued within 10 days. All animals crossing state borders to a cold weather destination are required to have a veterinarian's note on the health certificate that they are acclimated to temperatures below 45° F. It is the responsibility of the customer to obtain this certification.
Proof of rabies vaccination is required for animals traveling within the state of Alaska or when traveling across state lines. Proof of Parvo Virus vaccination is required before an animal can be transported to Nome or Kotzebue. Service animals traveling with a passenger are exempt from these certifications, though they are required to be in a working harness that identifies them as a service animal.
Fees indicated are for travel on Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, Pen Air and ERA Aviation. If your itinerary includes travel on another airline, the other airline fee may be assessed.
