Traveling with infants
US Airways defines an infant as a child less than 2 years (24 months) of age. Infants less than 2 years of age must be accompanied on all flights and in the same compartment with an adult at least 18 years of age. We recommend that you travel with a birth certificate for children between the ages of 1 and 2. If you’re traveling with an infant, you can travel with the child on your lap, or reserve a seat.
Lap children: On flights within the U.S., US Airways will accept one lap child without charge when traveling with a paying ticketed passenger age 18 or older. On International flights, lap children may have to pay 10 percent of the adult fare and any surcharges, may require a paper ticket and are subject to international taxes. Unaccompanied minors may only travel with a lap child if it is their own child.
Reserved seating: If you want your infant to travel in his or her own seat, you must buy a ticket. Also, you must provide a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved Child Restraint System (CRS).
If you're paying 10% of the adult fare for an infant to fly on an international flight, you’re allowed:
-1 checked bag (up to 45 in/114 cm and 50 lbs/23 kg)
-1 fully collapsible stroller or 1 child restraint device or car seat
Otherwise, first and second checked bag fees still apply.
Acceptable car seats:

- Manufactured after February 26, 1985 must bear two labels, stating: "This child restraint system conforms to all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards;" and "This restraint is certified for use in motor vehicles and aircraft," in red letters.
- Manufactured outside of the U.S. must bear a label of approval of a foreign government or a label showing the seat was manufactured under the standards of the United Nations.
Unacceptable restraint systems:
- Unlabeled child safety seats or safety seats manufactured before January 1981.
