Child travelling alone

Children 5-12 years may travel without a parent or guardian in accordance with the regulations for unaccompanied minors. Download the form (Link) and fill in your information before you arrive at the airport to facilitate the check-in process.

The child must be accompanied by the parent/guardian at all times at airport’s land side. The parent/guardian must contact check-in and hand over the pre-filled form to the check-in staff. AVIES representative at the airport will then complete the required documents. This form is a legal document and serves as a written assurance signed by the child’s parent/guardian. Without a valid document, AVIES may under no circumstances allow the child to board the aircraft. Upon arrival, the receiving parent/guardian must present a valid identification to the airport staff. Parents/guardians for unaccompanied minors must be at least 18 years of age. Children below 5 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during the entire journey and are not eligible to travel as unaccompanied minors.

Check-in for unaccompanied minors should be conducted well in advance before scheduled departure time. We recommend that arrival at check-in is not later than 35 minutes before departure in  Kärdla and 45 minutes before departure in  Arlanda, Tallinn and Kuressaare. Note: the parent/guardian must remain at the airport until the plane has departed and the take-off has been confirmed with airport staff.

Children older than 12 years of age are allowed to travel without special documentations. However, a child is not eligible to act as travel company for younger children until he/she has reached the age of 18. Passengers between 13 and 15 years of age may travel as unaccompanied children if the parent/guardian so wishes; the same documentation should then be completed as for unaccompanied minors. AVIES has a limit of two unaccompanied minors we are able to accept on each flight.

Contact AVIES Call Center  regular(at)avies.ee to make a reservation for an unaccompanied minor.

Charge for unaccompanied minor service is 20.- EUR per UM/flight.
