For any passengers who have food allergies, it is recommended that you bring your own food options as Flair Airlines cannot guarantee that their food options are allergen free and does not offer pre-purchase food options for special requests. Also be aware that if you have reactive allergies, you should have your medications on your person and readily available in case of an emergency.

Child Fares/Fees, Minor Service Guidelines

On Flair Airlines, children who have not yet reached their second birthday are not required to have their own seat and may, instead, travel on the lap of a parent or guardian (must be an adult who is 18 years of age or older) for no fee.

Birth certificates are required as identification for your infant and all children under 18 are required to fly with proper identification. If your second child is traveling with a child safety seat, you must notify Flair Airlines during the purchase of your ticket and the safety seat must be FMVSS approved (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards).

Only minors between the ages of 12 to 18 may fly unaccompanied on Flair Airlines, on non-stop flights only. Parents are responsible for notifying Flair Airlines that their child will be traveling alone during the ticketing process so that Flair Airlines can make proper arrangements for your child if necessary.
