Children travelling alone
Children of age 6 to 12 years may travel as ‘Unaccompanied Minors’ (UM). This intention should be reported at booking and the airlines will provide detailed information on the costs of this service. The lower and upper age limit might vary by airlines.Children are guided and assisted by ground and air stewardesses during journey. Parents (relatives) may accompany the child to ticketing where an UM form should be completed for the journey. The form should indicate the following information: the particulars and contact data (phone number) of the person(s) assisting the child at departure (normally the parent(s)), the particulars of the child(ren), the route, the particulars of the person who receives the child(ren) at destination. After ticketing, the child(ren) will be escorted by a ground stewardess to the boarding gate, guided to the board, and handed over to the air stewardess. The parent (relative) assisting at departure should wait until the craft takes off. Upon arrival, the child is awaited at the aircraft’s door, escorted through passport control, assisted in handing over baggage, and handed over to the person indicated on the UM form, who should certify his/her identity. Attention! It is a strict rule that the child should not be handed over to any other person. Both ground and air stewardesses pay distinguished care of children travelling as UMs.
Travelling with a baby
Children under the age of 2 years may travel only with their parent(s) (escort(s)). They do not need a separate seat so their ticket is discounted. Parents may use the baby-carriage until boarding if it is carried with them. You may apply for a cradle (on certain craft types) and special food for the baby.
You may ask for special food (e.g. vegetarian, milk-sensitive, kosher etc.) simultaneously with booking provided that it is 24 hours before departure. However, there are such special menus which should be ordered earlier. It is advisable to inquire when booking whether the airline concerned provides catering free of charge because it occurs more and more frequently that it may be used at one’s own cost.
