Discover How A National Airport Concierge Service Helps Unaccompanied Minors

by on Dec.01, 2015, under Vacations

Children have traveled by air unaccompanied for many years. All the airlines have s set of regulations and rules that pertain to a child traveling without a parent or other adult guardian. Policies that pertain to the unaccompanied minor traveler are governed by the United States Airport Concierge Services.

Additionally, there are specific rules that vary by each airline regarding when children can travel alone. As an example, in the US children cannot fly unaccompanied if the are under age five. Children who are between 5 and 7 years of age can travel unaccompanied but only on nonstop flights. However, the child must be escorted by an employee of the airline.

Children who are age eight to eleven cam take flights that are connecting but have to have an escort. The child in this age group however, cannot take the last connecting flight of the day unless no other option exists. Some people find it surprising that children age 12 and older are permitted to travel without supervision.

There are airlines that provide escorts for children 12 to 17 if the parents want the service. There are some airlines that do not permit a child to travel alone until they turn fifteen. For about two hundred dollars round trip, this service is offered to ensure a safe flight.

Included with the service is a gate pass that allows parents to accompany their child through the security station and to their departure gate. At the gate, parents will turn their child over to a flight attendant. Parents can remain at the gate area and wait until the plane takes off.

If there is a connection to be made, the attendant keeps the child until the escort arrives. The child is taken to the connecting flight and turned over to an attendant. When children reach the final stop they are met by an adult who must show ID before the child is turned over.
