LOT Polish Airlines flying with babies

When traveling with newborns, are there any restrictions on LOT Polish flights?

LOT Polish Airlines requires that passengers traveling with infants within seven days after birth complete a Medical Information (MEDIF) form. Incubators are not permitted on board LOT aircraft.

Does LOT Polish Airlines offer discounts for infants and children?

Discounts for infants (0-2 years) and children (2-11 years) apply according to the fare restrictions. The discounts might not apply to some LOT Polish Airlines fares, particularly certain special and promotional offers.


On LOT flights, infants have a 90% discount of the standard fare, which applies to children under 2 years old who will not occupy a separate seat on board the aircraft. Infants must be traveling in the care of an adult and will be seated, held safely with a special seat belt, on the lap of the person in charge of them. It is possible for one adult passenger to travel with two infants, but the second infant must occupy an additional seat right beside the adult passenger. When an infant travels in his/her own seat, the children’s discount will apply.


Special cradles for the carriage of infants during the flight are available on board Boeing B787 aircraft. Passengers traveling with an infant on long-haul flights operated by Boeing B787 Dreamliner may order a cradle at the time of booking but at least 24 hours prior to departure. Cradles are offered for babies up to 75 cm height and  10 kg weight.

Infant Baggage Allowance

On all LOT flights, except LOT Economy Saver and Simple fares on short-haul flights, infants not occupying a seat have an allowance of 1 piece of baggage up to 23 kg and a maximum size of 158 linear cm (width + height + depth). An adult passenger traveling with an infant can carry as cabin baggage, in addition to his/her carry-on allowance, food for the infant and a collapsible baby stroller or pushchair. One fully collapsible pram/pushchair or baby basket or car seat will be transported in the hold, free of charge. A car seat or baby basket could be transported on board if space is available.


On LOT flights, children have a 25% discount of the standard fare, which applies to children aged between 2 and 11. During every stage of the journey, the child must be traveling in the care of an adult. The discount does not apply to children traveling unaccompanied by an adult passenger. For a child, a collapsible baby stroller or pushchair is transported, free of charge, on board (if space is available) or in the hold.
