- The minor will have to be escorted and assisted with the check-in by the guardian or relative who has to be at the airport 30 minutes after the flight has taken off.
- The guardian/relative meeting the minor will have to be at the airport half hour prior to the arrival of the flight.
- The full address and phone information of the guardian/relative will have to be provided at the time of reservation. Owing to this, it is suggested you speak to one of TicketPilot customer service agents for reservations and ticketing of an unaccompanied minor.
