  • Yes, you'll have to purchase a plain ticket for your 3 y/o and yea you can bring his car seat as a carry on.

  • Um I'm pretty sure that a 3 year old in a car in Canada would be at the same risks as ones in the car in the US so I'm gonna say yeah go ahead and take that. But yes, by age 3 most airlines require that you buy a ticket and I do believe you can take the carseat on the plane.

  • depending on the airline, you will have to buy him a ticket, and his carseat will go on as checked baggage, but you take it all the way to the gate with you and they put it on right when you board, that way you get it right when you land...

  • Yes, over the age of 2 the child needs there own seat. I have never taken a car seat on the plane. My child just gets buckled in like everyone else. If you need to take the car seat then you will check it in with your baggage.

  • Under 2 is free or half price for a seat. It's not the law to have them in a car seat, but I would.
