Hawaiian Airlines: Children Flying Alone

What is Unaccompanied Minor Service?

Young children traveling without a parent or legal guardian are considered to be Unaccompanied Minors. Most airlines provide a service to assist these children from their point of departure to their final destination.

What age does my child have to be to qualify as an Unaccompanied Minor?

The service is mandatory for children ages 5-14 traveling without an adult who is at least 18 years old. For inter-island flights, children ages 5-11 are required to have unaccompanied minor service unless traveling with an adult who is at least 16 years old. Children over 15 years old are not required to travel as unaccompanied minors, but the service is optional for this age group as well.

Children under 5 years of age are not allowed to travel unless accompanied by an adult.
