Here you will find everything you need to know about the Singapore Airlines baby bassinet policy, including:

Does Singapore Airlines supply a bassinet/carrycot?

Yes. All bassinet seats are reserved for passengers with infants, on a first-come-first-served basis.

Singapore Airlines bassinet seats locations

These are located at the bulkhead positions – meaning the partition between a cabin, galley or toilet section of an aircraft.  A bulkhead seat offers slightly more legroom, so is a desirable seat.

However, on some seats the armrest is solid and immovable (this is where the tray table is stowed) which can be a bit uncomfortable if your baby is lying on you. bassinet on singapore airlines

All baggage at a bulkhead position MUST be stowed away for taxi, take-off and landing.

The bassinets on Singapore Airlines are ideal for babies weighing up to 14kg / 30.8lbs.

Singapore Airlines bassinet weight limit

Singapore Airlines bassinet policy: Bassinet sizes may vary by aircraft. The smallest bassinet measures at 768mm / 30.76in (L) x 298mm / 11.96in (W) x 158mm/ 8in (H), and can support a maximum weight of 14kg / 30.8lbs.

The CoziGo bassinet cover (affiliate link) retails at US $83.99 easily fits over airplane bassinets, including the Singapore Airlines bassinet. It blocks light, movement and stimulation helping baby to sleep without constant distraction.

It can also be used on strollers too as it protects from UV rays. We used it everytime we flew with a baby and regularly recommend it to friends flying long haul with an infant.

It can be shipped worldwide and shipping is FREE to Australia, USA, UK, Canada etc from their site

Can I use a car seat and a bassinet?

No, you will not be able to use a car seat and a bassinet. The bassinet is only an option for lap babies and not babies that have their own seat.

How do I request a Singapore Airlines Bassinet Seat?

When booking online, you can request a bassinet in the ‘Select seats’ section, prior to making your payment.

What happens if I don’t reserve a bassinet/carrycot seat?

You might not be able to get one as bassinets are reserved on a first-come-first-served basis. If a bassinet is not available, your infant will be seated in your lap and an infant seatbelt will be provided.

  • After take- off, a crew member should immediately get the bassinet and install it for you once the seat belt sign has been switched off. If they forget, do ask!
  • Most airlines require you to remove your baby from the bassinet if it bumpy or turbulent in-flight. A bassinet cannot be used for taxi, take-off or landing.
  • Plane bassinet weight limits must be adhered to. You may be asked the weight of your baby before they set it up for you.

I’m on a codeshare flight, who should I request the bassinet with? 

This should always be done through the airline operated the flight. e.g the actual airline you will physically be flying with. 

Is there a charge for requesting the bassinet seat?

No. Bassinet seats on Singapore Airlines may be requested, free of charge, by adults travelling with infants.

Can I use a car seat and a bassinet?

No, you will not be able to use a car seat and a bassinet. The bassinet is only an option for lap babies and not babies that have their own seat.

Hi we have four flight bookings. Two in June and two in August . We are a family of four (one of them is an infant- 6 months at the time of travel) The baby won’t fit into the bassinet. But, We have been assigned bassinet seats by default and we don’t want the bassinet seats. Instead would like 3 seats in a row. Please can you contact me regarding this.

Hi Ankita, You will need to contact your airline and request this - but a 6 month old will fit into the Singapore Bassinet- pictured is a 9 month old inside ;-)
