Can child safety seats be used on board the plane at Eurowings?
Children may use a booster seat, provided you have booked a separate seat for your child (bookings for children under the age of two can only be made via the call centre or at our airport counter).
You can take your own booster seat on board. Neither Eurowings nor its partner airlines provide booster seats.
Please note that you must check in at the airport counter if you intend to use a booster seat in the cabin. As a representative at the check-in counter will make sure the booster seat is suitable for your flight, online check-in and self-service check-in are not possible.
If you would like to bring your own car seat or child restraint system on board, please make sure:
- you register the child restraint device in time via our call centre, airport service counter or use our contact form,
- you book a suitable seat in advance (not in the first row, not at the emergency exit row or in a row in front of or directly behind the emergency exit),
- you are using an approved car seat/child restraint device (see below),
- the device is in perfect working order,
- you are familiar with using the device in an aircraft,
- you will attach the device to the seat, and
- you agree to check in the car seat or child restraint device as checked baggage if it doesn't appear in the list of approved devices below, if it's not in an acceptable working order or cannot be attached to the passenger seat.
If a seat does not comply with requirements, our employees are authorised to prevent its use and to stow the seat in a separate location. In such cases, infants will be secured with a loop belt on the adult's lap. We regret that it will not be possible to refund the price paid for the separate seat.
All regulations apply to Eurowings flights with an EW flight number, regardless of the operating airline. For our partner airlines' flights, which do not have an EW flight number, the conditions of the respective airline apply. These can be viewed on the airlines' own websites. These partner airlines currently include Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Condor, United Airlines, Air Canada and All Nippon Airways.
