If you plan to travel with an infant less than 8 days old, WestJet requires an approval letter from a physician that gives your newborn permission to fly. Please present the letter to a WestJet representative when you check-in at the airport.
Infants between eight days and two years of age
Fare-paying guests, 16 years of age or older, may allow one infant under two years of age to travel in their lap without requiring a seat to be purchased for them.
Once your child has reached their second birthday, Transport Canada requires that they occupy their own seat. If your infant has their second birthday while you are travelling, you will be required to purchase a return flight for your 2 year old, at full fare. To avoid issues or delays for your return flight, contact WestJet to book for the return.
