Unaccompanied Minors (UM)
Children aged five years who have not yet turned 12, fall into the category of an unaccompanied minor (UM). Minors 12 years and older may travel alone but the service is available if specifically requested.
Those under the age of five are not permitted to travel alone and must have an adult 18 years and older accompany them. UMs pay the same fare as an adult and a UM form must be full completed for each child. The airline will confirm your booking within 24 hours of submission and you need four copies of the form to take with you to the airport on the day of departure. UMs must be checked-in 120 minutes before departure and parents must remain at the airport until the flight has departed.
Once checked-in the UM is in the capable care of the ground staff who will see them through passport control and security checks to the aircraft when cabin crew then take over caring and ensuring they are safe, comfortable and happy during their flight with a goody bag, games and children’s in-flight entertainment including tasty meals and refreshments. The maximum amount of time for UMs transferring between flights is four hours where they will be under the care of the airlines premier service team. On arrival the UM is met by a member of the ground staff, escorted through immigration, baggage and customs and only handed over to the designated guardian once the required identification is produced.
