JetBlue offers pre-boarding for families with children under the age of 2, so you can have adequate time to stow away the diaper bag, secure the car seat and get your kids seated comfortably on the plane. Flying on their own can be an exciting experience for a child, but a nerve-wracking one for the parent. Rest assured that JetBlue crewmembers will be there to offer guidance and assistance.
Baby On Board
Baby milk and food – Baby formula, breast milk, baby food in small containers and medicines are allowed through security, but must be presented to a TSA officer at screening.
Keep kids shoes on – TSA now allows children under 12 to leave their shoes on during screening.
Teddy goes on the belt – Let your children know their favorite stuffed animal, toy, blanket and game must go through the x-ray machine (but that they’ll get it back very shortly, of course).
Strollers/car seats – If possible, strollers should be folded down. If it doesn't fit through the x-ray machine, the TSA officers will find other ways to screen it. Learn more about JetBlue’s infant baggage allowance here.
