Children and infants

Children are very welcome!

Children under the age of 2 will not be allocated a seat, but will receive a safety belt and life jacket. If you are travelling in economy class on our Airbus which flies between Kangerlussuaq and Copenhagen, we have carrycots for children aged less than 9 months. The carrycot must be ordered at least 24 hours prior to departure. If you have forgotten to do so, however, please contact our personnel on check-in.

For slightly older children there is in-flight entertainment in the form of cartoons and music.

There is a changing table in at least one of the toilets on the routes between Denmark and Greenland.

Children and infants

Children are very welcome! Also when travelling alone.

Infants

We recommend that your healthy newborn baby is at least seven days old before he or she goes on its first flight. If in doubt, seek advice from the hospital or your GP.

Children under 2 years of age

Children under the age of 2 receive a 90 % discount on the price of an adult ticket (on Economy Class, not on Business Class) exclusive taxes and duties. The child is not allocated its own seat and has to sit on the lap of an adult – or young person aged at least 15. The child will receive his or her own safety belt and lifejacket.

It is not possible to book infants on Business Class. The child is not allocated its own seat (although a seat can be purchased) and has to sit on the lap of an adult or young person aged at least 15. If you wish to travel with an infant on Business Class, the infant must be booked as a child. Please note, however, that there is no child discount on Business Class.

Only one child below the age of 2 per adult

It is only possible to book online for one child below the age of 2 per adult. If you are travelling with more than one child, you can book at our offices, at a travel agency or via our Call Centre on +299 34 34 34.

Price for two below the age of 2

One infant pays the same price as for a child under the age of 12. This child must be able to sit properly on a standard aircraft seat or child safety seat that you have brought with you that can be fitted on the seat. The maximum dimensions of the child safety seat are 65 cm in length and width, whilst the height must not exceed 45 cm. The seat can face forwards or backwards.

Children between 2 and 11 years of age

Children who are more than 2 years of age but not yet 12 and over, can qualify for a 50 % discount on the price of an adult ticket exclusive taxes and duties. The child gets his or her own seat. Please note, however, that there is no child discount on Business Class.

Unaccompanied children

Book your flight for an unaccompanied child via our offices at airports, at a travel agency or via our Call Centre on +299 34 34 34. The child must be at least 5 years of age, but no older than 15.

When booking this flight, you must state the name, address and telephone number of the people seeing off and receiving the child. The person who sees off the child must remain at the airport or heliport until the flight has departed.

If the child has to switch to another plane or helicopter, you must state the name, address and telephone number of contacts in the town concerned. This is not necessary in Kangerlussuaq, however, where we have a child care facility.

NB A fee of DKK 250.00 per date of travel has to be paid over and above the price of the ticket.

For safety reasons we are only able to carry a limited number of unaccompanied children on each flight.
