I’m traveling with Children…what do I need to know?

  • Allegiant is a family friendly airline. Each fare paying passenger traveling with a child may check a stroller, bring along a car seat, and a diaper bag at no charge and will not count as the passenger’s personal item or carry-on.
  • Children under twenty-four months of age on the date of travel may either book as:
    • A ticketed passenger seated in an FAA approved car seat or,
    • As a lap child on the seat of an adult on the same reservation.

Additional information related to traveling with children, seating and reservations, identification and accompanying requirements can be found on the Allegiant website.

When are Ticket Counter Hours?

  • Ticket counter hours are not fixed and change monthly due to flight schedules. Ticket counter hours can be found by calling the office at 240-313-2777 Monday – Friday between 8 am – 4:30 pm. Purchasing through the ticket counter reduces the booking fees that you would otherwise pay if booking through a website.
