NO FEE for unaccompanied minors

Children between the ages of 5 and 11 years old (inclusive) and not accompanied by a person of 16 years of age or older are classed as an unaccompanied minor.

They will be given a badge at check-in together with a document satchel which allows our personnel to identify them more easily during flights and in crowds. This service is free of charge but reservations must be made in advance as we limit the number of unaccompanied minors per flight to ensure the best possible treatment for each child.
