Our Unaccompanied Minors service is for children aged between 5 and 11 who are flying alone. Our service also applies to children between 5 and 11 years old who are flying in a different cabin class from their parent or guardian. They will only be considered accompanied if they are traveling in the same cabin class with a passenger over 16 years old.
You can also make a special request for our Unaccompanied Minors service for solo travelers aged between 12 and 15 if you’d like us to be with them on their journey.
We’ll help your child to enjoy a fun and memorable trip from check-in until meeting their parent or guardian at their destination.
When you drop off your young flyer at Dubai International, you can take them straight to the Unaccompanied Minors Lounge near the check-in area. We’ll check them in there, before taking them to one of our departure lounges just for young solo adventurers.
Our lounges have video games, free Wi-Fi, and comfy sofas. Kids can enjoy drinks and snacks while they wait for their flight, and there are children’s bathrooms in the lounges too.
If your child has a connecting flight in Dubai, they’ll be taken to one of our Unaccompanied Minors Lounges to wait before being handed over to our cabin crew. We’ll also accompany them to eat if they’re with us during a meal time.
