Baggage for infants and children

Here's some useful information regarding baggage allowance, strollers and child safety seats when traveling with infants and children.

When you are traveling with an infant or a child, you can check in a stroller/pram and child safety seat/car seat in addition to the baggage included in the ticket, free of charge.

At SAS you are considered a child if you are older than 2 but have not yet turned 12 years old (2–11). An infant is at least seven days old but has not yet turned two.

Detailed information

Infants, age 0–2

Carry-on baggage

No carry-on baggage is included for infants.

Checked baggage

When traveling in SAS Go (not valid for SAS Go Light), SAS Plus and SAS Business you are allowed to bring one piece of checked baggage, max 23 kg, max size 158 cm (length + width + height).

If the infant’s baggage exceeds the baggage allowance included in the ticket, you have to buy extra baggage.

Stroller/pram

You can bring a stroller/pram as checked baggage in addition to the baggage included in the ticket, free of charge. This also applies to SAS Go Light tickets. A stroller/pram must not weigh more than 23 kg.

Child safety seat/car seat

You can bring a child safety seat/car seat as checked baggage in addition to the baggage included in the ticket, free of charge. This also applies to SAS Go Light tickets.

If you have booked a seat for your infant, you can bring a child safety seat onboard free of charge.

If you want your infant, under age two, to sit in a child safety seat onboard, you have to book a child ticket. The child safety seat is secured to the seat next to yours. It can either be forward-facing or rear-facing. To reserve a seat for a child safety seat, please contact Customer Service.

Children, age 2–11

Carry-on baggage

For children, carry-on baggage is included in the ticket. How much depends on the ticket type.

Checked baggage

Children can bring the same amount of checked baggage as adults. How much depends on the ticket type.

Stroller/pram

You can bring a stroller/pram as checked baggage in addition to the baggage included in the ticket, free of charge. This also applies to SAS Go Light tickets. A stroller/pram must not weigh more than 23 kg.

Child safety seat/car seat

You can bring a child safety seat/car seat as checked baggage in addition to the baggage included in the ticket, free of charge. This also applies to SAS Go Light tickets.

Stroller and child safety seat

Strollers/prams that are two-piece models must be packed in two parts.

When checking in a stroller (max 23 kg) and/or a child safety seat you have to use a plastic bag or a suitable protective hard case to protect it. We recommend that you use a hard case to avoid any potential damage. Nothing else is allowed to be packed in the same plastic bag/case.

The check-in and pick up point for strollers and child safety seats differ between airports. At some airports they are checked in at the same bag drop/check-in desk as other bags. At some airports you need to drop them off at the desk for special baggage. Ask at the airport.

You can pick up a plastic bag to protect your item at the airport. If you’re traveling in SAS Plus or SAS Business, or if you’re a EuroBonus Gold or Diamond member, it is free of charge. If not, it can be purchased at the check-in counter. Please note that this bag is intended to protect your item from dust and dirt, not physical damage.
