We welcome unaccompanied minors on our flights from the ages of 5 to 18. If they're under 12 just let us know in advance and we'll make sure they're well looked after until they're met at the other end.
Children aged between 5 and 11 are always classed as unaccompanied minors when travelling alone and must use the unaccompanied minors service as detailed below.
Children aged between 12 and 18 may choose to use the unaccompanied minors service, if they wish. Ordinarily, we'll assume they don't require it.
- The parent/guardian of the unaccompanied minor must stay at the airport until the child's flight has departed.
- Children under 5 must always travel with someone aged 18 or over, unless their parent or legal guardian is under 18 themselves.
- Children aged 5 to 18 are also classed as unaccompanied minors if their parents or guardians are on the same flight, but in a different cabin. That's because our crew will be responsible for them in the event of an emergency or the seatbelt signs are switched on, as you won't be able to attend to them.
- If you're travelling in Upper Class and your children aren't, they won't be able to visit you, but you're welcome to check on them.
