Children Travelling Alone

 Unaccompanied Minor Service Information:
  • The Unaccompanied Minor service is provided on flights operated by Czech Airlines only for children from 5 to 11 years of age. Children under 5 years of age are not allowed to travel alone. If requested by the parents, children from 12 to 17 years of age can also travel as unaccompanied minors.
  • Please request the Unaccompanied Minor service when booking the ticket via our Sales Points or our Call Centre no later than 48 hours prior to the scheduled departure.
  • Before the ticket is issued, a special Unaccompanied Minor form must be filled in.
  • A fee of EUR 65* per each leg of travel to/from European destinations and EUR 85* per each leg of travel to/from other destinations is charged for the service in addition to the regular fare. In-flight refreshments, such as children’s meals and hot and cold beverages as per the child’s request, are included in the fee.
  • The child must have his/her own travel documents: a valid passport, visa and health certificate if required for the particular country.
  • At check-in, the child will receive a special Unaccompanied Minor (UM) card, stating the flight number, full name, age and language of communication of the child, which will be placed in a case with a string to go around the child's neck. The card needs to be kept visible for the entire duration of travels.
  • The child and his/her baggage will be in the care of the ground staff member during the child’s stay at the airport and then accompanied to the aircraft.
  • Cabin crew will assume responsibility for the child once on board of the aircraft.
  • After arrival, a member of the ground staff will meet the child at the aircraft door/stairs and help him/her to pick up their luggage. After that, the child will be accompanied to the customs area exit and hand over to a previously appointed person – most commonly a family member.
  • The ground staff member will verify the identity of the person picking up the child based on a valid photo ID and request that the person signs a special form.
