Unaccompanied Minors

Unaccompanied Minors

When your child travels with us as an unaccompanied minor, we ensure they will be cared for all through the journey by our well trained staff.

Flights within India: A child between the ages of 5 years through 12 years travelling alone or with one or more guests who have not yet completed 18 years is considered an Unaccompanied Minor (UMNR) for travel within India provided the entire travel is on Jet Airways operated flights.

For international flights: A child between the ages of 6 years through 12 years travelling alone or travelling with one or more guests who have not yet completed 18 years is considered a UMNR for international travel.

Jet Airways will accept unaccompanied minors with an itinerary involving connecting flights on other airlines subject to the acceptance policies of all the other airlines on the itinerary. We ensure that an unaccompanied minor is never left unattended throughout the journey. Unaccompanied minors are seated near the galley to ensure they are looked after by our crew at all times.

At the destination, the unaccompanied minor is handed over only to the person stated in the Unaccompanied Minor Form. Proof of identity will be requested before handing over the child to the designated person.


Unaccompanied Minor (UMNR) - Travel within India

  • Detailed information of the UMNR must be provided at the time of reservation.

  • Adult fare is applicable for children travelling as UMNR.

  • You will be required to submit a duly filled UMNR form to Jet Airways staff prior to departure at the point of origin. Click here to download the form or get one from our reservation and ticketing counters.

  • Our ground staff will place your child under the guardianship of our able Cabin Crew In-Charge onboard the flight.

  • On arrival the Cabin Crew In-Charge will hand over your child to the ground staff who will then accompany and assist them with baggage claim.

  • Our ground staff will reunite your child with the designated guardian at the arrival area.


Unaccompanied Minor (UMNR) - International Travel

In addition to the procedure mentioned above the following points will be applicable for International travel.

  • We will not accept an unaccompanied minor if the journey involves an overnight stay. However, in the event of a flight being diverted to another station, a female staff will accompany the child in the hotel room until departure of the flight.

  • If a UMNR has an onward connecting flight on Jet Airways or any other airline and an overnight stay is involved, a person must be nominated by the parents or guardians to collect the child on arrival at the point of transfer and remain with the child until he or she has been placed in the care of the ground staff handling the onward connecting flight. If, the parents or guardians are unable to nominate such a person, Jet Airways will be unable to accept the UMNR for travel.

  • If the onward connecting flight is on Jet Airways but departs from another airport in the same city, or another terminal, we will transfer the UMNR provided the connecting time is 4 hours or less.

  • If the onward connecting flight is on another airline, departing from the same terminal or another terminal which can be easily accessed without exiting the terminal building, we will transfer the UMNR to the connecting carrier provided the connecting time is 4 hours or less.

  • If the onward connecting flight is on another airline and departs from another airport in the same city or another terminal that cannot be accessed without exiting the terminal building, a person must be nominated by the parents or guardians to collect the UMNR at the transfer point and further hand over him or her to the onward airline.
