Children, Infants and Expectant Mothers
Travelling by seaplane can be a fun experience for the whole family! Ensuring everyone on board is safe and comfortable is important to us. We’ve compiled some information for travelling with infants, children and expectant mothers to help ensure your experience is easy and enjoyable. Please note, all children, unaccompanied minors, and families travelling with children will be welcomed to pre-board the aircraft. To request a pre-board please call our reservations team before your flight or notify our team upon check-in.
Travelling with infants (under 2)
Children under 24 months at the time of departure fly free of charge as a lap-held infant. Although there is no charge for infants, please inform us that an infant will be travelling with you when you make your booking. Please note, one parent or guardian must accompany each infant per flight and all aircraft are equipped with infant life vests.
Travelling with children (2 to 11 years old)
Children ages 2 to 11 receive a discounted fare when travelling with a parent or guardian (please note, accompanying guardian must be 16+ years of age).

Baggage allowance for children and infants
Passengers travelling with infants or small children may bring one collapsible stroller and/or one car seat as additional pieces of luggage for their child at no additional charge. These items must adhere to the size and weight restrictions of the aircraft, click here to refer to the Luggage page.
Expectant mothers in any stage of pregnancy are welcome to fly with Harbour Air. Women beyond the 36th week of pregnancy are required to consult a physician or registered midwife to obtain a written confirmation stating they are acceptable for travel. If you require a seat belt extender for comfort, just ask the Customer Service Agent at check-in.
Tips for travelling with kids
- Arrive at the terminal a little earlier than required so you have plenty of time to check-in and get settled.
- Request pre-boarding to give your family a few extra minutes to get settled on board the aircraft before general boarding.
- On most of our aircraft all bags must be stored in the cargo area of the aircraft. Remember to take out any items you wish to keep with you during the flight and ensure they are small enough to fit in the seat-back pocket.
- It can be a little noisy on board so you may wish to use ear protection for your child. Child-sized headsets can be requested at check-in.
