Can my child travel alone on an Emirates flight?

Yes. Emirates has two categories of service, with separate conditions and requirements, for our passengers between the ages of 5 and 16 who are traveling unaccompanied by an adult.

For children between the ages of 5 and 11, classified as Unaccompanied Minors, we have separate check-in facilities and dedicated ground staff to help on departure and arrival.

We also provide special attention for those children between the ages of 12 and 15—classified as Young Passengers.

Please visit the Unaccompanied Minors page for more information, or contact your local Emirates office.
