We'll be flying with a 2 y/o. Will we have to pay for a ticket for him? Or will I be able to hild him on my lap?
Two year olds can not be lap children so yes you will need to pay for a seat.
Yes, they need their own ticket.
every child over 2 or under 2 has to have a ticket. but the seat is the issue. under 2 they can be on your lap OR you can purchase a seat and use a car / flight seat. over 2 they MUST purchase a seat.
Definitely need a ticket.
Everybody needs a ticket.
For children below the age of two, many airlines will charge you in the area of around 10%, if you have your baby on the lap (so called lap baby). This is cheap but can not only be uncomfortable but also is not really safe.
As from 2 years old, children need a seat and will pay around 70-75% of a full ticket.
As from around 12 years old, children will need a full ticket.
dubai. many many airlines do not give a reduction for a 2-12 yo. they charge per seat.
Recently booked 2 children on Aer Lingus charged adult fares.
Some airlines give rebate for children, some don't.
