What do you have to do to travel with a baby?
To travel with a newborn baby (7 days old or under), you will need a medical certificate for you and your baby, issued up to 10 days before your flight departure date. You must send us this document through our contact form at least 48 hours before your trip.
You can share a seat with the baby by paying a percentage of the adult fare, plus taxes. Keep in mind that for flights within Brazil and Chile (except Easter Island), you don’t have to purchase a fare or pay taxes for babies, but they do need a ticket.
If you would like the baby to travel in its own seat, you will have to purchase a child fare and the baby has to sit in a certified chair for use on board or, for babies that weigh between 10 and 20 kilos, an Aviation Child Safety Device (ACSD).
For trips with LATAM Airlines Brasil (domestic and international flights departing from Brazil), you can request that LATAM provide you with a free safety seat. This seat is placed on top of the airplane seat and provides safe travel for children weighing up to 25 kilos. You must request this service at least 72 hours before your flight. It is subject to availability.
