Who qualifies for the status of Unaccompanied Minor?

A child aged between 6 and 17 years old who is making an air travel without an accompanying adult or a legal guardian is treated by the airlines as an “Unaccompanied Minor”, also sometimes referred to as a “separated child” or “unaccompanied child”. According to the airlines, unaccompanied minor is a child who is traveling alone without the physical presence of a legal guardian, or who is traveling with an accompanying adult on the same aircraft but is seated separately in a different class.

How can I book flight tickets for unaccompanied minors?

The guardian or parent of traveling unaccompanied minors will need to fill up a release form, which will identify and tell about another guardian who will be picking up the child at the destination airport. A government issued Photo ID will have to be produced by both the guardians who will be dropping the child at the origin airport and picking the child from the destination airport. The flight tickets for unaccompanied minors can be booked by the airline after requesting for unaccompanied minor service.

What is unaccompanied minor service?

Unaccompanied Minor Service, also called UMNR Service, is a special service provided by the airlines for unaccompanied minors.

The information filled in the UMNR Service form should be accurate and the named adults will be required to show their government issued Photo ID to the airline staff. If an acceptable ID is not provided by the child’s guardians then the child may not be allowed to board the aircraft or released into the care of the adult on arrival at the destination airport by the airline staff.

Will the airline allow an unaccompanied minor to travel alone on an aircraft if he/she is mature?
