Children aged between 4 (sometimes 6 depending on the airline) and 12 years of age may travel alone as UMs (Unaccompanied Minors).
5 documents are essential at check-in:
- Ticket or booking by means of electronic ticket
- National identity card or passport in the child’s name (can vary depending on the destination)
- Parental authorisation
- Identification sheet with the details of the person collecting the UM at the destination airport (fully completed with surname, first name, address and telephone number). This document is handed in at the airport or may be requested during booking
How the process works:
Pau Airport personnel take charge of the children at the UM meeting point (located near the check-in desks) to help them go through the security checks and board the aircraft.
Once on board, they are placed in the care of the flight crew until they reach the destination airport.
On arrival, they are handed over to the person indicated on the “collecting-person identification sheet”, after he/she has produced some form of identification.
