Airlines have dramatically varying policies and fees and forms when it comes to children flying alone under the designation of an unaccompanied minor which is why we make this complicated process hassle-free. We help you understand if your kid qualifies to travel alone and if it is convenient for your family plans. Allow us to become a guide for your minor mhild flying alone, here it all begins:
Any child who is 5-14 years (airlines regulations may vary) who travels without accompanying an adult is considered as an Unaccompanied Minor. No children aged between 2-5 years are allowed to travel alone in any circumstances. An unaccompanied minor is also not permitted to travel on standby and must be confirmed to travel to their final destination.
When a child travels alone, few procedures are followed by all the airlines similarly. The parent or guardian must be present at the airport at the time of check in and cannot leave until the flight takes off. All unaccompanied minors must report at the airport at least 2 hours prior to departure for domestic flight and 4 hours prior to departure for international flights. Parent/guardian who will receive the child at the destination are requested to report at the arrival hall 30 minutes before arrival. A parent or guardian is required to complete a signed Unaccompanied Minor form at the point of check-in at each departure airport prior to travel. The form must include the name and contact numbers of the parent or guardian (above the age of 18) who will meet the unaccompanied minor at the point of arrival. Valid photo ID for both the unaccompanied minor and the parent/guardian is required at the point of check-in. These are few basic norms followed equally by all the airlines. It may appear to involve several things to consider while booking a ticket for a minor but it is only for the safety of your child.
When your child is travelling alone, you would want them to be safe and ensure that all their needs are addressed in real time. This is where Unaccompanied Minor Service helps you stay stress-free. A staff member will take the child to the aircraft where one of the cabin crew will then look after them. During the flight cabin crew will keep an eye on the child and make sure that they get everything they need and also provide them the meal on time. Parent/guardian are requested to pack medication, warm clothing and a favorite toy or game in their hand baggage for a comfortable journey. When the flight lands at the destination a staff member will accompany the child to the arrival hall to safely drop off the child.
By now you must be aware the criticality an Unaccompanied Minor booking involves and hence it cannot be booked online by anyone themselves. If any policy is not met then passenger can be denied to board the flight and you may end losing the entire money you spent on the ticket.
