Minors traveling

Sky High Aviation Services offers a service for children between the ages of 5 and 14 traveling unaccompanied.

This service guarantees that children are accompanied by the passenger service agent from the time they arrive at the airport counter at their origin until they are received at their final destination where they are handed over to their family member or guardian.

The unaccompanied minor service (UMNR) does not apply and does not include any services during the flight itself. It begins at the counter at the airport of origin, transferring the minor through the security and departure migration processes to the boarding gate and the location of the minor inside the aircraft. Upon arrival at the destination, the minor is accompanied from the plane, passing through the immigration and customs process where he/she is handed over to the responsible person.
