Children and Infants

Children and infants

Children aged 2 (two) years and above at the time of travel are required to occupy a seat onboard our flights. They are required to pay the full fare, taxes and charges.

Subject to the following, children below age 15 will not be accepted for carriage unless they are accompanied by an adult. Anyone aged 12 to 14 inclusive may be accepted for carriage unaccompanied with a signed indemnity form at the point of check-in at each departure airport by a parent or a guardian. Parents and guardians must remain at the airport until the departure of the flight. Prevailing laws of each country may differ in respect of the carriage of unaccompanied children. Young persons aged 15 to 17 inclusive may travel unaccompanied.

Escort and special facilities are NOT available. Children below the age of 12 must be accompanied on the same reservation by a passenger aged 18 or above who will take full responsibility for the minor.

The charge for carriage of infants is S$50 per infant per sector, when they are seated on an adult's lap (maximum 1 (one) infant per adult aged 18 or over). No baby/car seats are allowed in the cabin of the aircraft. If you are travelling with an infant, Tiger Airways will allow at no additional charge, 1 (one) piece of infant equipment, such as a pram or portable cot to be checked, in addition to any Luggage Upsize? allowance purchased. If the infant reaches the age of 2 (two) years prior to the return journey they must pay the applicable fare, taxes, fees and charges for that part of the journey. Proof of age will be required; so please have the infant's valid documentation available for inspection. For those adults wishing to purchase a seat onboard the aircraft for infants, this is possible providing the adult fare for the seat is paid, in this case the Luggage Upsize? options will apply for baggage to be checked into the hold of the aircraft.

Newborn babies below 7 (seven) days old will not be accepted for travel under any circumstances.

Special regulations apply to minors being less than 18 years of age travelling to or from the Philippines.

Filipino minors leaving The Philippines must be accompanied by both legal guardians unless documentation from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has been satisfactorily completed. Please refer to the DSWD for accurate information.

For Alien non-resident minors up to/including 14 years, travelling without parents a Waiver of Exclusion Ground (WEG) must be obtained. It is highly recommended to obtain the WEG before leaving the point of origin.

Tiger Airways will accept children aged 14 years or below in large groups (i.e. 10 or more) on the condition that there is a minimum ratio of one accompanying adult per 10 (ten) children. In these instances an adult is considered to be anyone who is aged 18 years or above. Passengers are advised to call the call centre prior to travel so the necessary instructions can be made.

Pregnant women must have completed their journey in full by the end of the 34th week of pregnancy. Flying is not permitted from the beginning of the 35th week onwards.
