Nursing Moms Take Flight

Question: Can I breastfeed or pump onboard?

Answer: Of course! Moms are welcome to nurse and pump onboard.


Question: What about traveling with breast milk and ice packs?

Answer:  The TSA provides information for Customers traveling with breast milk and ice/freezer packs on their website.


Question: Are there electrical outlets onboard for me to plug in my pump?

Answer: Because our Passenger seats are not equipped with electrical outlets, there is not a place for moms to use an electric pump onboard. As such, only manual or battery operated pumps can be used onboard.


Question: Does my pump count as a carryon?

Answer: A breast pump does not count toward the carryon limit.


We look forward to seeing you and your little one soon!
