INSTRUCTIONS REGARDING INFANT TRAVEL FOR BOOKINGS ON DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL FLIGTHS BY TRAVEL AGENTS
In case a passenger wishes to travel with an infant, for the infant travel to be approved, you must enter a corresponding entry (SSR) of your GDS, using the NN status, in the booking.
It is mandatory to enter the name and the date of birth (which may not be a future date) of the infant. “Add infant” must be applied within the original GDS PNR. There is no need to create a new booking.
Ellinair will respond to you, according to the SSR (HK or UC) status. If you did not follow these guidelines from the start, Ellinair will respond to you with the relevant SSR addition and you will then have to enter the new, correct SSR.
Furthermore, the reply, upon receipt of the SSR (HK or UC) status, further depends on the number of infants allowed per flight.
Kindly contact your relevant GDS office for more information regarding the entries.
