Unaccompanied Minors & Children:

  • A guardian must complete an unaccompanied minor form prior to departure. A Fee of $25.00 +GST is applicable per one way flight.
  • Both guardians dropping off and picking up the child must be listed on the unaccompanied minor form and must provide picture ID.
  • Children under the age of 24 months may travel at no cost as they do not require the use of a seat and are permitted to sit on the lap of a parent or guardian. You will be required to provide ID as proof of infant's age (such as birth certificate or health card).

 

  • Travelling with infants and children
  • For the safety of both the adult and the child, Canadian Aviation Regulations require that no person shall be responsible for more than one infant (children under the age of two).
  • As time is of the essence during an evacuation, it is very difficult to safely evacuate an aircraft in a timely manner while holding two or more infants. The aisle and row width as well as the dimensions of the emergency exit openings are the two major factors that inhibit a rapid egress.

 

  • Approved Child Restraint System
  • Transport Canada encourages passengers to use an approved child restraint system (car seat) when travelling by air with infants or children. Why? Although an infant under two years of age may be held in an adult's arms, using an approved car seat during a flight:
  • protects your child;
  • ensures their comfort while travelling; and
  • brings a familiar car seat to your destination.
  • If you decide to use a car seat, always:
  • check with your airline for their specific policies;
  • follow the manufacturer's installation instructions;
  • tighten the aircraft seat belt through the correct path on the car seat; and
  • secure straps out of the way since tether straps cannot be used on board the aircraft.
