We appreciate you taking the time to help us.
At OpenSkies we take great care in ensuring that your child travelling alone receives all the attention they need to make sure they have a safe and fun flight.
Children up to the age of 12 years can fly with us if they are accompanied by someone 16 years or older, or they can travel alone using our OpenSkies Solo Flyer service. The person accompanying your child may be a family member or an appointed guardian.
Solo Flyer, is our dedicated service giving you peace of mind that your child will be looked after throughout their journey with OpenSkies.
By booking our Solo Flyer service, our staff will accompany your child throughout their journey until they are collected by your nominated adult or transferring airline.
Our cabin crew will look after your child for the duration of the flight.
Our ground staff or our appointed handling agents will accompany your child from the aircraft, through the arrival gates, to meet the person designated to collect them, or the airline your child is transferring to. If the person collecting your child is delayed, it is essential that you let us know, as our hours of operation can be limited at some airports.
The safety and security of your child is of utmost importance and we do ask for identification of the person collecting your child to make sure it is the person you have asked to meet them. Therefore, please ensure they know to bring formal identification with them.
On an OpenSkies flight in addition to buying an adult ticket for your child you will have to pay a Solo Flyer service fee.
Other partner airlines may have different regulations, age limits and charges so please check with them directly.
Contact the local authorities of the countries your child is travelling to or from to ensure you know what regulations, documentation and visas they will need.
