Travelling with a restraint device

A restraint system is a removable device or a harness that can be attached to the seat of an aircraft using the aircraft seatbelt to secure and protect the passenger throughout the flight. Here you'll find the guidelines for use of restraint systems, harnesses and devices on board flydubai flights for infants, children and adults.

Passengers may use a restraint system on board provided that:

  • Passenger using the restraint system is seated next to their travel companion who is 18 years old and above and can assist them throughout the entire journey.
  • Passenger's seatbelt is used in conjunction with the restraint system.
  • The restraint system fits properly and ensures that the passenger is seated and secured correctly following the manufacturer’s instructions.

If you are travelling with a restraint device, you'll need to get a clearance to use it on board at least 48 hours before your flight. Please send us a message via Contact us form, selecting ‘Restraint system/device’ subject in the drop-down. You'll need to provide your booking reference number, device make and model, and any other specific requirements.
