An unaccompanied minor is a child aged between 5 and 11 years, not accompanied by a passenger 12 years or older. A maximum of two unaccompanied minors may be carried on a flight. Only those flights that carry cabin crew will accept UMs. UMs may be accepted on flights with no cabin crew only if they are accompanied by a person older who can take responsibility for the UM.
UMs must be checked in by an adult guardian who must furnish photo identification, contact information as well as the relationship to the child. The same identification process will apply to the person the UM will be released to by the ground staff at destination.
Unaccompanied children will be carried at the discretion of the aircraft commander.
The Company Unaccompanied Minor form must be completed by ground staff for each child in the presence of the guardian during check-in.
