JetBlue Junior

Traveling with children? Rest assured our inflight and airport crew will be on hand to help make the trip a comfortable one for your child, and a peaceful one for you. Plus, our kid-friendly onboard options will keep them happily entertained from takeoff to touchdown. For travel tips and resources, here’s your JetBlue guide to a less stressful family flight.

Babies onboard

JetBlue offers pre-boarding for families with children under the age of 2, so you can have adequate time to stow away the diaper bag, secure the car seat and get your kids seated comfortably on the plane. Please see our help page for more information about the following:

  • JetBlue baggage allowance for infants
  • Guidelines for an infant/child safety seat
  • FAA-approved infant/child safety seats
  • Traveling with lap children
  • Courtesy gate-checking car seats and strollers

Kids flying solo

Flying on their own can be an exciting experience for a child, but a nerve-wracking one for the parent. Rest assured that JetBlue crewmembers will be there to offer guidance and assistance. Please see our help page for more information about the following:

  • Listing an unaccompanied minor on JetBlue
  • Dropping off or picking up an unaccompanied minor
