Discount Airfare
Many major airlines allow discounts for families adopting children overseas. Be sure to inquire when calling for reservations. Some airlines give discounts as much as 65% off coach rates and also allow late, last minute reservations without penalty. Flights can also be rescheduled or cancelled at no cost. Families are encouraged to negotiate with the airline, since many offer even deeper discounts for adoption situations.

Airline Restictions for Flying with Newborn

There is quite a variance in the regulations of different airlines for flying with a newborn (with some having age restrictions for flying and some requiring physician’s approval). The policies and websites are prone to change so we definitely advise adoptive parents call the airline prior to departure, and get required documentation at the 1st pediatrician appointment upon release from hospital. To help get you started here are a few links to the more popular airlines.

Southwest: 14 days and under requires medical approval.  See their information here.

Delta: 7 days and under need approval.  See their information here.

United: No infants 7 days and younger can fly.  See their information here.

Usairways: Accepts 2 days old and up.   See their information here.

American Airlines: Infants after 2 days old.  See their information here.

Frontier: Can’t travel til 7 days old.  See their information here.
