The following is our Children’s Policy from Geneva Airport. If your child is big enough to sit in a seat themselves whilst safely strapped into a 2 point lap seat belt, then they must purchase a ticket at the full price & travel like any other passenger. If your child is so small that they need a baby seat, then regretfully we are unable to arrange to transport them. This is due to the fact that we often use large coaches which are not suitable for safely securing a baby seat.
