A minor can travel unaccompanied with Turkish Airlines

Turkish Airlines offers an unaccompanied minor transportation service, and it is accessible to passengers whose age is between 7 and 12 years old, and if they are under seven years of age, they must be accompanied by an adult.

Children of this age may travel alone on TA-operated flights provided they have parental consent. This does not apply to unaccompanied minors.

When you arrive at the airport, and before your child’s boarding, you must complete a parental consent form proving that you have authorized Turkish Airlines to transport your child alone on board its aircraft.

After signing this form, the child will be brought back to the terminal with you to confirm their name and date of birth, their ticket reservation, etc. The parents will then go through a security check to have their card stamped identity with the date and time of arrival, which will allow them to access the secure area of the airport. Once inside the airport, parents should stay with their children until the child boards the plane.

Service fee: What fees to pay with Turkish Airlines?

Apart from owning their own seats (by booking a plane ticket), Turkish Airlines does not charge additional costs for minors traveling alone on its planes. Whether they are traveling inside or outside Turkey, TA agrees to transport them without any worries.

Purchasing Airline Tickets for Unaccompanied Minors: Points to Consider

When planning a trip for a minor passenger whom you plan to send on a flight unaccompanied by adults, consider the following very important point: when issuing tickets, a request-notification is sent to the airline regarding the possibility of transporting an unaccompanied child.

The request must be sent in advance to the airline: each of the carriers has its own rules in this matter, but in any case, the request sent less than 24 hours before the departure time, the airline, with a strong probability, will not accept. Additionally, Turkish Airlines may refuse to carry an unaccompanied minor passenger. This is due to the fact that the carrier has the possibility of organizing the supervision of small passengers on board the plane by the attendants.

Adults must accompany the flight at the departure airport, as well as meet underage passengers at the destination airport. In addition, if the parents or adoptive parents, guardians of a minor passenger are not acting as a clairvoyant or meeting, such persons must have on hand a notarized consent of the parents, adoptive parents, guardians or guardians . The same document will be required in case of departure of a minor citizen of the Republic of Kazakhstan outside his state, and the document, among other things, must indicate the date of departure and the destinations he intends to visit.

What happens when the little passenger arrives at their final destination?

The tutor must wait until he has disembarked before picking up your child. Remember to bring photo ID to ensure your child receives their boarding pass and passport. it is recommended that you bring your own car seat or booster seats to transport your child during the flight to the airport.

You can always find out about all the rules and regulations for traveling with children by contacting Turkish Airlines customer service.
