Special Assistance

    How does SpiceJet classify a passenger and an infant?

    "Infants" are classified as children above 7 days and below 2 years of age on the date of travel and "passengers" are those above 2 years of age on the date of travel. Infants would travel on their parent's/guardian (separate seat will not be provided for infants). Applicable charges would be levied per sector towards the infant’s booking.

    How do I book for an infant?

    Passengers traveling with infants are requested to specify the same at the time of booking. In case they forget to do so they are requested to call the Reservations number before their date of travel and SpiceJet’s staff will assist them with the booking. A fee of 1260 INR per sector is to be paid towards the same. Due to limited inventory for accommodating infants per flight, Passengers are requested to follow the above mentioned procedure when booking children above 7 days and below 2 years of age. A maximum of one Infant is allowed per adult. Proof of age is required, so please carry the Infant's Passport/valid ID (birth certificate) for inspection at the airport on the date of travel. No baby/car seats or push chairs are allowed in the aircraft cabin. No extra seats may be booked for Infants and Infants do not qualify for a free Baggage allowance.

    What should I do if I need special assistance?

    Should you require any special services while you travel with SpiceJet, please call our Reservations and inform our staff of your requirements. We will do our best to accommodate your needs. The Guest Relations Executive shall guide the caller through the formalities (if any) involved.

    What are the regulations for expectant mothers traveling on SpiceJet?

    Expectant mothers may travel up to and including 36 weeks of their pregnancy, and will be accepted between the 28 to 36 weeks only if they are in possession of a doctor's certificate confirming the stage of their pregnancy and stating that they are fit to fly.

    The certificate validity is for 2 weeks. This will have to be presented at check-in when requested. However in case of any associated complications (multiple pregnancy, complicated single pregnancy), a more recent certificate (within 48 hours) has to be produced.

    Expectant mothers 37 weeks and above are not allowed to fly.

    Can I request for special assistance for disabled passengers?
