Families with infants

If you’re flying with an infant, bassinets are available to book for free, subject to availability.  

To request a bassinet, visit etihad.com/manage and add a special request for your infant. Then make sure you select one of our bassinet seats from the seat map.

How to reserve your seat

Pick your seat when you book your flight, or during online check-in 30 hours before your flight. We’ll always try to make sure that guests on the same booking sit together, though we recommend selecting your seats in advance to guarantee this.

Perks for Etihad Guest members

If you’re an Etihad Guest member, you can reserve seats for free or at a discounted price, depending on your Tier status. You must log in to your Etihad Guest account before you book.
