A lap infant may bring one (1) diaper bag, one (1) stroller and one (1) car seat. Lap infants that are traveling at no cost do not qualify for the checked baggage allowance.
Checking a child safety seat will not count towards your checked baggage allowance and there is no fee assessed; however, playpens and other infant beds will count as a checked bag and must meet size and weight requirements.
Guidelines for seating and placement of child restraint systems, safety seats and lap infants aboard JetBlue flights:
Please note that JetBlue does not provide child restrain systems (CRS), safety seats, child aviation restraint systems (CARES), nor the bags/boxes to cover them.
All special accommodations are left to the discretion of the Inflight crewmembers.
JetBlue Aircraft Seat Dimensions
To enable customers to identify a seat that will accommodate their CRS, the following chart provides the width of the narrowest and widest customer seats (in inches) in each type of service and aircraft we fly:
Please note that JetBlue cannot guarantee that customers traveling with a CRS will be seated in the widest seat available in their reserved class of service.
JetBlue allows the use of FAA-approved infant safety seats secured to standard aircraft seats. Safety seats must have the appropriate manufacturer's label.
Child Restraint Systems (CRS) manufactured between January 1, 1981 and February 25, 1985 must have one of the following labels: "This child restraint system conforms to all applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards." or "This restraint is certified for use in motor vehicles and aircraft."
Seats manufactured after February 26, 1985 must have an additional label which reads: "This restraint is certified for use in motor vehicles and aircraft."
Booster-type seats, vest and harness-type child restraint systems, lap-held child restraints or seats manufactured before January 1, 1981 are not acceptable.
Car seats and child restraint systems (CRS) are considered a special item (along with overcoats, jackets or umbrellas). The special item is in addition to the one carry-on item (to go in the overhead compartment) and one personal item (to go under the seat in front of the customer) a customer is permitted to bring onboard the aircraft.
JetBlue will courtesy gate-check any of the following: strollers, car seats, child carriers/backpack carriers, booster seats, wheelchairs, walkers, canes, or crutches. If you chose to check any of these items (at the check-in counter or gate-check), it will not count as one of your checked bags and there is no fee assessed. There is no limit to the number of assistive devices a customer may transport as carry-on or checked baggage, within reason.
Additionally, this courtesy is extended regardless of whether the customer is traveling with the infant/child or is meeting the infant/child at their destination.
Breast pumps are also permitted as carry-on baggage and are exempt from carry-on restrictions.
Note: Please be aware that strollers are not covered for damage if checked. JetBlue assumes no liability for loss, damage or delay per the JetBlue Airways Contract of Carriage Section 19.
