What kind of assistance do you offer my child when travelling alone?

  • The airport is the first stop on the journey taken by your child travelling alone. The person bringing the child to the airport must accompany the child to the check-in desk and sign a transfer document. You can then walk with your child as far as customs. From this point, our ground crew will accompany your child to the aircraft. It is important that you stay at the airport until the plane has departed. Should the flight be cancelled unexpectedly, then you are still in the vicinity to collect your child.
  • The cabin crew will help your child board the aircraft and take your child to their seat.
  • After arriving at the destination, the crew will hand your child over to our colleagues at the airport,
  • where your child must be met by someone aged 16 or older. Make sure you have arranged everything beforehand, otherwise your child will have to fly back on the first return flight for safety reasons.
  • The person who is meeting your child must report in at the airport beforehand. He or she must also sign a form for picking up your child.
