Child Restraint System

Using An Approved Child Restraint System


  1. The safest way to secure an infant (less than 2 years old) or child (between 2 and 7 yrs old) on board an aircraft is in an approved Child Restraint System, in a dedicated seat, appropriate for that infant or child.  PAL encourages a parent or guardian who purchases a seat for an infant or child, to provide their own approved child restraint system (CRS).   The use of a CRS provides an equivalent level of safety to infants and children as that afforded to adult passengers wearing seatbelts.  (Reference:  ICAO Document 10049)
  2. A separate seat must be purchased for an infant who will be using an approved car seat or approved CRS.
  3. The infant or child using the approved car seat or aircraft CRS must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who will attend to their safety. A parent or guardian who is responsible for an infant or child who is using an approved car seat or aircraft CRS on board an aircraft must be seated next to the seat to which the car seat or aircraft CRS is secured.
  4. Booster seats are not allowed for use on board the aircraft.
  5. Carriage of car seats or aircraft CRS must meet the following criteria:
