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.
