Do I need to reserve a seat for my infant?
Children up to 2 years old (24 months), are not required to have their own seat. You must, however, inform ANA that you will be traveling with an infant on your lap.
Only one lap child is allowed per adult. If one adult is traveling with more than one infant under 2 years of age, a seat will have to be purchased for each additional infant.
Will I pay for my infant to travel internationally?
Yes, a child under 2 years old (24 months) is charged 10% of an adult fare plus taxes, even if the infant will be on the lap of another passenger for the flight. You can also choose to purchase a seat for your infant as long as you have the proper child restraint device. ANA offers these seats at a 75% discounted fare.
What if my child turns 2 on the trip; will I have to buy a ticket for the return flight?
Yes, a ticket will have to be purchased for any flight on which the infant will be over 2 years old.
What types of child restraint devices are allowed?
The car seat must be certified in Japan (MLIT), U.S. (FMVSS), or Europe (ECE R44). Click here for more information on child restraint devices allowed on ANA flights.
What infant amenities are available on the aircraft I'll be flying (ie. Bassinets)?
Infant amenities vary by aircraft. When you're on the airplane page, look for the Infant Amenity Icon. If it is present, clicking on it will tell you what infant services are available on that airplane. If you do not see it, infant amenities are not offered on that aircraft. You can always contact ANA for more information.
Can I sit in the Exit Row with my infant?
Lap children and infant seats are not allowed in Exit Rows or in the row directly in front of or directly behind an exit.
