Our unaccompanied minor service is required for kids 5-14 years old who are flying alone or with someone under 18. Here are the important things to know about how the policy works:
- Your kids must be booked on a nonstop United or United Express flight.
- If your kids are under five, they don’t qualify for this service and must fly with you or another adult who is at least 18.
- If your kids are 15-17, they can travel alone without using this service, but you can use it if you want to.
There is a fee for our unaccompanied minor service. The fee is different depending on how many kids are flying and if it’s a roundtrip.
Number of kids traveling One-way fee Roundtrip fee 1-2 $150 $300 3-4 $300 $600 5-6 $450 $900
In this case you don’t need to use our unaccompanied minor service. Just give us a call before your trip starts and we’ll make sure your reservation is updated. Your kids will need to check in at the airport ticket counter rather than our website or app.
