2 kids under 2 free.

Are children under 2 free? I was buying flights on the app and it was charging me for 4 passengers. Didn’t even give me the option of putting their ages in. How would I go about purchasing tickets for my husband, twins and I without being charged for the twins if they are free? Would I just buy 2 tickets and then just have my babies tag along or?

Children under 2 who will be in your lap the entire flight don't need tickets .Passengers who   occupy seats need tickets.

 

 

Since the airline needs to know who is on every plane, you need to declare them when you get to the airport
