A step-by-step guide to children traveling alone
If a child is traveling alone, there are some steps you need to take along each step of the journey.
Booking a flight for an unaccompanied minor isn't something you can do online. Instead, you can book at any Air Europa branch or via customer services. Each flight will have a maximum number of minors permitted to travel unaccompanied.
You can request an escort service at travel agencies, sales offices, or via customer services.
ID card, passport, vaccinations, entry procedures... We recommend that you check exactly which documents you need for the country's entry requirements.
To speed up the process and ensure you have the right documentation, please complete the travel form provided below and print one copy to be presented at the check-in desk. Our staff will then be responsible for distributing the forms to Air Europa staff.
If you have any issues with the online form, you can download it in PDF format and fill it in by hand.
Air Europa will only accept unaccompanied minors on connecting flights with a layover time of no more than 5 hours.
You must obtain a boarding card at the airport's check-in desk. The child's companion will be provided with a temporary boarding pass enabling them to accompany the child to the boarding gate. If you don't accompany the child as far as the boarding gate, you must stay in the airport until the flight departs.
You cannot check in online - you'll need to do it at the check-in desks.
Our crew will be there to make sure the child is safe and comfortable. They'll also make sure they arrive safely when they reach the destination airport.
The minor will be the last to leave the airplane when it arrives at its destination. A member of our crew will accompany them to arrivals where they'll meet the person responsible for pick-up.
Minors travelling in groups
Different types of distribution between minors and adults:
Minors travelling in their own seat may use fastening devices suitable for their age, provided that they are certified and fit the seat.
For minors, there are specifications regarding the documentation necessary to fly, which vary according to nationality and requirements of the countries involved in the trip. We explain the details in our section "Documentation for Minors".
It will not be necessary to fly with a trained companion if the passenger can act individually in the event of an emergency and is over 12 years of age on domestic flights or 15 years of age on international flights.
