Children Flying Solo ......:)

Unaccompanied Minors

Airlines generally consider children ages 5 - 14 who travel without a parent or guardian to be "unaccompanied minors." Many airlines will not allow children 7 and under to make connections at all, but in the event a minor is old enough to change planes, they will probably be assisted by airline personnel and a fee will be charged. Some airlines -- Southwest, for example -- will not allow any minor (5 - 11) to change planes.

If you intend to send an unaccompanied minor by plane (with or without a connection), you will be required to fill out a form detailing the child's name, age, medical considerations and other relevant information. Upon arrival, children will be escorted from the aircraft by an airline representative and released to the person named by you prior to departure.

General Age Guidelines

Airline rules vary, but here's a good idea of what to expect on domestic flights:
Children ages 1 - 4 may fly only when accompanied by an adult. A child must be at least 5 to fly alone.
Kids ages 5 - 7 can take a direct flight to a single destination but not connecting flights.
Those 8 and up may change aircraft on some airlines. If they're between 8 and 11, they will be escorted by airline personnel to their connecting flight. Older kids -- age 12 and up -- may not be routinely escorted, but you can request this assistance as long as you pay the applicable fee

Minors must be met at their destination by another parent or responsible adult.
