Does airBaltic accept children traveling alone?
airBaltic accepts children traveling alone if the child’s age permits the booking either as an adult passenger or of the Unaccompanied Minor service.
What restrictions and requirements regarding age apply for children traveling alone?
Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult aged 16 and over. Online, you can only buy tickets for children who will be accompanied. Children aged 5-11 years (inclusive) may travel alone if they use the Unaccompanied Minor service.
Children aged 12-15 years (inclusive) may travel alone if they hold a passport and birth certificate. However, they may not travel with a child under 12 years of age.
Passengers aged 16-18 years may travel alone and accompany children under 12 years of age if they hold a passport or, for some destinations, national ID card.
For children aged 12-17 years, the Unaccompanied Minor service is optional and can be requested by their parents or guardians.
Unaccompanied Minor Service
The airBaltic Unaccompanied Minor service must be arranged in advance at airBaltic ticket offices or via the online payment form. The service is available if the legislation of the child’s country of residence permits it as there may be different restrictions for Unaccompanied Minor travel in some countries (e.g. in Moldova, a minor can travel only under the supervision of an adult resident of the same country). The service ensures that the child is under the supervision of airBaltic from check-in until the child has met his/her parent or guardian upon arrival at the destination.
airBaltic charges a non-refundable fee of €60 per one-way journey. If there are two children traveling as part of the same reservation, only one service charge applies. These rules only apply to flights operated by airBaltic. If the journey includes a flight operated by another airline, different charges may apply.
