All airlines have rules and regulations about children travelling alone or unaccompanied by an adult. Some airlines will not allow children to travel alone under a certain age. Other airlines will not allow your children to travel alone without using their Unaccompanied Minor service. Most airlines will offer this service for older children if you require it.
Each airline will also have restrictions on which airports their service is available at and their own charges, so please check their website very carefully for details and booking conditions.
If you use an Unaccompanied Minor service, please ensure you have paid for the service BOTH WAYS (if required) and have completed the Unaccompanied Minor Information Form for each leg of the journey. Your airline will provide you with this.
Please see our Airline Unaccompanied Minor (UM) Policy Quick Guide
