In brief: It won't hurt her
When landing, make sure she drinks during the descent so that her eustacian tube can clear and lessens her possiblilty of ear pain.

In brief: ?fever
Taking your child's temperature to ensure there is no fever prior to travel is important.
If this is an uncomplicated cold without a fever and respiratory difficulty, it is possible to travel. Keeping your child well hydrated, taking a thermometer and Tylenol, (acetaminophen) and antibacterial wipes to wipe off surfaces is also advisable.
