Infants at least 16 days old may be accepted for travel.
Passengers requiring the use of baby bassinets should book their flights and make the necessary reservations at least 24 hours before the date of departure. We follow One-Infant-Per-Adult Policy.
Philippine Airlines reserves the right to decline bassinet requests without prior reservation. Bassinets are available for prior requests in order to be guaranteed a unit on board. These bassinets are limited in number as they can only be attached to certain seats on the plane and are available only for flights with a flying time of three (3) hours or more. The Bassinets are about 70cm long x 30cm wide and shall not be suitable for infants over 6 months of age with a weight limit of 10 kgs. Bassinets are available in all aircraft EXCEPT A319 and A320.
