How old do you have to be to travel on an airplane alone?
* Children ages 5-7 years can only fly on nonstop or direct flights with no change of planes. * Children ages 8-14 years can fly on nonstop or connecting flights, but may not connect to other airlines, with the exception of Delta Connection carriers (excluding AA Eagle) and Air France. * Children 15-17 are not required to have unaccompanied service but we will provide it when requested. * An unaccompanied child can not be booked on the last connecting flight of the evening. This is to prevent the need for an overnight stay in a hotel.

Depends on the airline. Some are 10, some 8, some airlines do not take unaccompanied minors at all. Call the airline for their rules.
He/She must be accompanied by a guardian you can hire at an airport or the flight attendant (s) can supervise him/her
Depends upon the travel method. Most carriers (airlines, buses and trains) have a minimum age that can travel unaccompanied. You would have to check with the specific transpor…tation provider.. Many hotels have minimum ages for booking rooms, so would have to check with them as well.
I think tht u can be any age above 12 cause like i want to travel to las vegas when i was 12 and i kept on searching what to do but if i cant go to las vegas i rather go to ca…lifornia or florida so pretty much 12 and up
12 years -improve: you can travel between 5-12 yrs. You must have the airlines babysit the child for a fee make arrangements for said child to be picked up and other rules wil…l apply. Depends on airline. Most flights won't watch children over 12. You also need a note from parents they will have to purchase the ticket also, or your legal guardian.
airlines have different rules - most require a signed release from a parent or legal guardian at the departure point and contact information for the adult that will pick up th…e child at the destination. Many assign a gate agent that will follow a minor child every second from gate to gate. On the airplane, the flight attendants are well-trained and aware that its a minor traveling alone. There are plenty of people that will help keep a kid safe at major airlines.
yes I have seen this many times on airlines
You have to be 18.
over 15 but if you are younger you can get an unacompanied minor pass
16 or 18 Improve this: 5 years and older. However that child can not make a connection flight without paying an attendant a fee usually $75.00+
Yes, some pets, such as cats and dogs, may travel alone on anairplane provided that they are in a proper crate or kennel andhave all the necessary papers. It may also depend o…n where theanimal is going as some countries will not allow pets to travel byairplane.
Most airlines do not have a minimum age for babies on regular flights.

No. I recently saw a news item where 3 children did fly alone. One reason they were able to do this is that the oldest was 16 and in some states the airlines will allow a 16 y…ear old to fly alone. He/she still needs the proper documents and identification as well as a ticket.

This would be dependant on where they where flying to. Most airlines have a proceedure to deal with UM's (unaccompanied minors). However, a child aged twelve would not be able… to fly from America to the UK without an adult. Therefore you would need to check with the airline to discuss this further with them.
