Unaccompanied children and minors service

 

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.

 

FARE

In addition to a full adult’s fare, extra fees of €75 (for a one-way trip) or €150 (for a return flight) are applicable for all bookings of our “Unaccompanied Minor” service.

 

BETWEEN 5 TO 11 YEARS ("unaccompanied minor")

  • If your child is aged between 5 to 11 years, an “Unaccompanied Minor (UM)” booking is required. He/ She will be accompanied at each journey step by Luxair staff.

  • You can make an “Unaccompanied Minor (UM)” booking for your child through your travel agency, by calling the Luxair/LuxairTours Customer Service Centre, +352 2456 1 or online via our website. When you book, you’ll be asked to provide contact details for the person who will be taking your child to the departure airport and meeting them on arrival.

  • Before your child's departure, please check the entry and specific travel requirements. 
    At the moment of checking-in you will need to provide:


    • A statement, in duplicate, authorizing the minor to travel alone. This must be signed by the police or the local authorities.
    • The H140 form signed by the mother, father, or legal guardian, exempting Luxair from any responsibility. You can download the H140 form here


    At each journey step, your child must have an envelope with the contact details of the person waiting for him/her.

  • Check-in
    On the day of your child's departure, please check-in at the check-in counter, at least 120 minutes before the flight (Luxair might not be able to take care of your child, if this time limit is disregarded). 
    At the check-in counter, we will let you know where and when our staff will come to collect your child.

     

    At the expected time, your child will be welcomed by one of our ground agents, who will accompany him/her to the aircraft where a member of our cabin crew will take over. Please wait for the plane to take off before leaving the airport.

  • During the flight, our cabin crew will do their utmost to ensure that your child has a safe and pleasant flight.

  • Upon arrival, your child will be the last to leave the aircraft. A member of our staff will accompany your child to the arrival area and the designated pick-up person.
    At destination, your child will be accompanied from the aircraft to the airport, where we will complete all the necessary formalities together.


    We will then go and find the person, who will take care of your child. 
    The person you designated beforehand when booking the flight, will have to present official ID documentation when they come and take care of your child.

BETWEEN 12 TO 17 YEARS ("unaccompanied minor")

If your child is aged between 12 to 17, he/she can travel alone, with written authorisation from their parents or legal guardians. To maximize their comfort, we highly recommend “Unaccompanied minor” bookings for young travellers.

 

You can make an “Unaccompanied Minor (UM)” booking for your child through your travel agency, by calling the Luxair/LuxairTours Customer Service Centre, +352 2456 1 or online via our website. For online booking of children between 12 to 17 years old, you need to do a "youth" booking and to select the unaccompanied minor service at the "addtional service" step of the booking flow. A call center agent will call you afterwards to collect the contact details for the person who will be taking your child to the departure airport and meeting them on arrival.
