Infants (under 2 years)
Most airlines define an infant as less than two years of age. If your child is under two*, he or she can fly as a lap infant, meaning she or he will be seated in your lap during the flight. When adding your baby as a traveler, please select whether you would like your infant to occupy a seat or fly on your lap.
- If you book a seat for your infant, you'll likely be charged for a full-priced ticket.
- If you didn't initially book your lap infant on your reservation, please reach out to Hopper Support to have them added to your reservation.
Children (2 years and older)
Once a child turns two, they are required to occupy a seat. You'll need to book them as a traveler on your initial purchase, as we are unable to add additional travelers to an existing bookings (except for lap infants!).
Good to know
- Passengers under the age of 18 may only book on Hopper if accompanied by another passenger 18 years of age or over.
- If your child turns two during your vacation, you will need to purchase them a seat for the return leg of your trip.
- Alaska Airlines does not issue tickets for infants, so please don't be alarmed if your booking does not include a ticket number for your baby.
