Virgin America: 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 15 years old. Children ages 15-17 years are not required to travel as unaccompanied minors, but the service is optional for this age group as well.

Children under 4 years old are not allowed to travel unless accompanied by an adult who is at least 15 years old.

Are there any flight restrictions?

Unaccompanied minors ages 5-14 can only travel on non-stop flights.
