Last updated on: 18 Feb 2019

Passengers travelling with a baby may request a carrycot (baby baskets) on TAP operated flights, so that the baby may sleep comfortably during the flight. This service is free and is available on certain aircrafts only.

  • There are designated seats on the aircraft for cots and their number is limited. A booking is required on all flights on which the infant needs a cot;
  • The number of seats available for cots varies from one type of aircraft to another and availability is limited. This information is immediate and it will be confirmed when you book; book under SSR BSCT after checking the seat map for dedicated seats;
