We have created the Kids Solo service for children traveling alone: Our staff will accompany your child and ensure his or her safety throughout the journey. We are pleased to be able to welcome back children travelling alone (aged 4 to 17 years) on board our aircraft. In the context of the health situation, Air France has put in place special measures to welcome your children in complete safety.
Children and youth under 16 years of age traveling from the United Kingdom are exempt from paying the British Airport Tax (Air Passenger Duty). This exemption is automatic.
YOUR CHILD'S JOURNEY STEP BY STEP
Find out more about your child's journey by clicking on each of the steps below.
At the airport
In the aircraft
- A child traveling alone is a minor who is not accompanied by an adult over 18 years of age. However, the accompanying passenger may be under 18 years of age if he or she is the mother, father or legal guardian of the child.
- If your child is traveling on the same flight as you, but in a different cabin, he or she will be treated as an unaccompanied minor. Your child will remain under our supervision throughout his or her journey, including any transfers.
- Unaccompanied minors will not be able to access airport lounges, as their infrastructure prevents us from ensuring consistent supervision of your child.
Air France can supervise disabled children or those with reduced mobility, under certain conditions. Please contact Saphir , our assistance service for passengers with reduced mobility, for further information.
- If a flight is delayed or canceled, children traveling alone take priority. Your child will remain under constant supervision by our staff, even if overnight accommodation is required. We will inform you immediately of any special action taken to accompany your child throughout the journey.
