Air travel can be nerve-racking, especially for children traveling alone. While commercial flight companies cannot always accommodate for circumstances, flyExclusive’s private Jet Club offers its Members an unparalleled air traveling experience. Chartering a private jet can create a more seamless process for parents whose children are traveling alone, ensuring their care and safety are of top priority. Here’s the pertinent information parents must consider regarding unaccompanied minors onboard private jets.
Most commercial airline companies define unaccompanied minors as anyone between the ages of five and fourteen traveling without someone eighteen or older. The age at which a minor can travel alone on a private jet will vary depending on the jet company’s policies, so parents must check these guidelines before chartering a private jet for their child. Commonly, private jet companies require passengers traveling alone to be at least seven years old.
As a safety protocol, private jet companies will require a notarized letter of consent from the child's parents or guardians. Along with verifying travel plans and destinations, this letter must also include a thorough description of who is picking up the child upon landing. Minors traveling abroad must have valid passports and all required visas or documents.
A key benefit of flyExclusive’s private Jet Club is its flexibility. This is especially beneficial for unaccompanied minors who may need specific accommodations. Unaccompanied minors can avoid chaotic and stressful commercial airports and enjoy a calm and peaceful boarding process. This can help alleviate any flying anxiety and make the experience more manageable. Additionally, private jets are not subject to the same carry-on restrictions as commercial airlines. Children can bring their favorite devices, toys, and snacks on board without complications.
As a precautionary measure, private jet companies often require unaccompanied minors to travel with a flight attendant for additional care and attention. This gives parents the peace of mind that their child is safe and well-cared for during the flight, especially for children with medical or behavioral concerns.
While private jet travel offers a more comfortable, personalized experience, parents should consider the following before chartering a private jet for their child:
