Unaccompanied children and minors

We take care of them all the way.

We’re happy to welcome unaccompanied minors on our flights. Here are just a few points to note for your child’s safety and your peace of mind.

 

BEFORE FLYING

- for children aged 5 to 11*, an “unaccompanied minor” booking is required.

- those aged 12 to 17 can travel alone, with written authorisation from their parents or legal guardians. We highly recommend “unaccompanied minor” bookings for young travellers.

For further information and to book, contact your travel agency or call the Luxair/LuxairTours Customer Service Centre on +352 2456 1.

* for children aged between 5 and 11, we require a statement, in duplicate, authorising the minor to travel alone. This must be signed by the police or the local authorities.

Before the flight, please provide us with form H140 signed by the mother, father, or legal guardian, exempting Luxair from any responsibility. Download form H140 here

You can make an “unaccompanied minor” (UM) booking for your child through your travel agency, or call the Luxair/LuxairTours Customer Service Centre on +352 2456 1. This type of ticket cannot be booked online. When you book, you’ll be asked to provide contact details for whoever will be taking your child to the departure airport and meeting them on arrival.

 

ON THE DAY

On the day your child is to travel, please take them to check-in no later than 60 minutes before departure. Your child will be met by one of our assistants and accompanied to the plane, where a member of the cabin crew will take over.

Our crew will do their utmost to make sure your child has a pleasant flight.

On arrival, your child will be accompanied from the plane to the airport, where we will complete all formalities before taking them to the person meeting them. You’ll have given us the name of this person when you booked, and we’ll ask them for official ID before handing your child over to them.

All UM bookings are at the full adult fare plus fees of €40 for a one-way trip or €80 for a round trip.

 

UNACCOMPANIED MINORS OF ITALIAN NATIONALITY

Special conditions for Italian nationals up to 13 years of age travelling alone or with someone other than their parent or legal guardian (as specified in their passport) outside Italy:

- They must carry an authorisation (Dichiarazione di Affido) issued by the local police, or, if their parents live abroad, issued by an Italian embassy or consulate. The Dichiarazione di Affido can’t be issued by the airport police.  A certificate is mandatory for all children travelling without parents, no matter if it's flights from Italy or to Italy. 

- Under Italian law, an UMNR procedure must be in place for children under 14.

- They must be booked as an unaccompanied minor.

Please note that this restriction only applies to Italian nationals: minors of other nationalities come under the standard procedure.
