Safety Board says All Kids Need to be in Seats

On Wednesday, the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) sent a recommendation to the Federal Aviation Administration urging that all airlines require every passenger, including children under 2 years old, to have their own seat.

This would mean the end to babies sitting on the laps of parents in flight; on commercial, private and chartered planes. In the letter, the board cited several accidents in which young travelers were injured or killed, and that children under the age of 2 “should be afforded the same level of protection as all other persons ” .

This has been an ongoing discussion amongst travel professionals for years...
