It can be great fun travelling with small children, but it can also be quite a challenge. That is why we, at KLM, do all we can to make flying with young passengers as comfortable as possible, from check-in to arrival.
Our crew speak Dutch and English, which is nice for the children, but also for you, because it means you are not on your own throughout the flight. We are ready to answer all your little adventurer’s questions, both when on the ground and in the air.
We always endeavour to seat families together. If it is not possible we will do all we can to make sure that each child is seated next to an adult from your group. You can find detailed information about your seats, reserving carrycots and taking a child seat here:More information
Give your next trip a flying start by checking the whole family in online before you leave from home. Especially in the busy school holiday period this will make your journey more comfortable. We can then ensure that all the family are sitting together in the aircraft and email you your boarding passes. The online check-in starts 30 hours before your flight is due to depart (24 hours for flights to and from the United States). We will send you a reminder message by email. More check-in information is available here.
The first time your child flies on their own it can be a bit nerve-racking, for your child and for you too. With our Unaccompanied Minor service, you are assured your child is in safe hands during the entire trip. We take care of your child from check-in to arrival.More information
Do you know our mascot Bluey? He travels with your children, at the airport and on board! All children over two years old get a nice surprise from Bluey. On intercontinental KLM flights, they get a complete Bluey play set. They will also get a Bluey eye mask so they can take a nap. On European fights, children receive a passport holder and a Bluey activity book. If you want to surprise your children with Bluey before you go, visit the KLM shop for great Bluey articles.
On intercontinental KLM flights, children can have hours of fun with Bluey on our inflight entertainment system. Time will fly by with all the films and games!More information
We take extra good care of our young passengers, from great films and games to tasty snacks. We serve free children’s meals with, for instance, delicious mini hamburgers and chips. The menu varies per flight, but with Bluey and a junior pilot adventure game or junior pilot diploma for the youngest pilots among us every children's meal is a party!More information
On all KLM flights, you can take one collapsible stroller/buggy per child. You can check in the stroller/buggy as hold baggage at no extra charge or hand it in at the gate so it can be put in the hold. The stroller must have a protective cover, but it may not contain any additional baggage. Children travelling in their own (booked) seat, have the same baggage allowance as adults.More information
Crossing the airport once is more than enough with your family in tow. So it is great that we fly directly, so with no transfers, to over 150 destinations.
Earning Miles, you can’t start early enough. From the age of two, your children can become a Flying Blue member and start saving for flights, overnight stays and much more. What’s learnt in the cradle lasts to the tomb.More information
