In brief: Should be fine.
The main risk would be from the potential exposure to viruses and germs from other passengers.
At 6 weeks, the baby's immune system isn't fully developed and we take things like colds and fevers very seriously. Don't give your baby any medicines to make it sleepy. Pack lots of milk/formula. And purell/wash your hands very frequently! good luck!
