Orbit Baby Infant Car Seats are certified for use in an aircraft when used without the Infant Car Seat Base and is labeled as such in red on the car seat side label. Most airlines in the U.S. will allow the use of a car seat that is labeled as an approved child restraint for aircraft use, as it is the safest place for your child to travel in an airplane. Always contact the airline about their car seat policy before traveling and follow their guidelines for car seat use. Please refer to your manual for car seat installation on the airplane. Or contact us with any questions regarding safety or installation.

Some smaller infants may need a little extra stability from the head support. If the head support no longer fits or is uncomfortable for your child, simply remove the infant head support. For information on how to remove or re-install the head support, see the infant seat owner’s manual.
