The exact age at which you can start flying with your baby can vary depending on where you live, where you are flying to as well as the airline that you are flying on.
If you are looking at a really safe age when you can travel with your infant, it is best to wait till they are at least two or three months old.
In most of the cases, if your baby is less than 2 weeks old, you may have to carry a letter from your baby’s paediatrician, which states that your baby is healthy and fit to fly. In case you do not have the said letter, some airlines can even refuse to let you board with a baby, if the baby is less than 2 weeks old.
If you are planning to travel with your infant on Delta airlines, you can start flying with your little one as early as they are 7 days old. It is best to speak to a Delta official to know if you can travel even earlier with your little one, before he or she is 7 days old, in case you need to do so.
If you are planning to travel along with your infant’s baby seat during travel on a Delta aircraft, here are a few things you should keep in mind:
According to the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP), it is always best to travel in a flight with your infant in an infant safety seat instead of holding your little one in your lap or in your arms.
Before the air travel, also ensure that you get your baby examined by a paediatrician to ensure your baby will be safe during and after the travel.
