Jet Airways carries unaccompanied minors on its sectors within India as well as in international sectors.
For our sectors 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 (UM) for travel within India where the entire travel is on Jet Airways.
For our international sectors: 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 an Unaccompanied Minor (UM) for international travel where the entire travel is on Jet Airways.
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 participating in the journey.
When an unaccompanied minor is entrusted to us for travel, no effort is spared in providing special attention to him or her. This should give confidence to parents / guardians regarding our ability to look after their children whilst travelling with us.
The child is escorted to the aircraft and handed over to the Inflight Executive (IFE). On arrival at the destination the arrival staff will receive the UM from the IFE.
We ensure that an unaccompanied minor is never left alone at any point of time, as we are responsible for the child whilst with us. Unaccompanied Minors are seated near the galley so that crew can keep an eye on them.
At the destination, the Unaccompanied Minor is handed over only to the person stated in the UM form. If necessary, proof of identity may be requested.

If, the parents / guardians are unable to nominate such a person, we cannot accept the UNMR for travel.
