Olympic Air - Home

Children

Children under the age of 5 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian on all Olympic Air flights. The parent or guardian must be over the age of 18, and must supervise and be responsibile for the child throughout the duration of the flight. It is the guardian's responsibility to carry the child's necessary identification documents, as well as any other documents required at the destination (e.g. visa/passport). It is implied that the child and the escort will be travelling together on the same flight and the same class.

In the case where a child between the ages of 2 to 12 years has to travel without a parent or guardian, Olympic Air offers the following services:

Dedicated Escort Service (2 - 5 years of age)

A dedicated escort for the full duration of the flight will be assigned to children between the ages of 2 to 5 years that are not accompanied by a parent or a legal guardian over the age of 18.

It is necessary to apply for the Escort Service at least 5 days prior to the travel date by contacting the Reservations Department. 

 

Unaccompanied Minors Service (5 -12 years of age)

The unaccompanied minors service (UMNR) is offered to unaccompanied children between the ages of 5 to 12 years*. The service provides for an Olympic Air ground employee undertaking responsibility for the child from the parent or guardian and escorting him/her from the check-in counter to the entrance of the aircraft, where the child will then be under the responsibility of the cabin crew for the entire duration of the flight. Upon arrival at the destination the child is again received by a ground crew member, and escorted to the person that has been pre-appointed by the parent or guardian for pick-up.

The fee for the Unaccompanied Minor service is:

 For Domestic flights  EUR 10.00
 For International flights  EUR 40.00

All necessary information including the name, address and phone number of the person that will drop off the child at the departure airport, as well as, of the person that will meet and pick-up the child from the destination airport must be provided to Olympic Air. An identification card must also be shown both for the drop off and pick up of the child.

To apply for the Unaccompanied Minors Service (UMNR) please contact the Reservations Department at least 5 days prior to travel. Optionally a dedicated escort for the entire duration of the flight may be assigned to children between the ages of 5 to 12 years under the request of the parent or guardian.

Young Passengers (12-18 years of age)

Young passengers from the age of 12 to 18 years are able to travel unaccompanied. It is however understandable that the parent or guardian may be concerned, or that the young passenger may feel insecure about travelling alone, especially during their first flight. 

The fee for the Unaccompanied Minor service is 10€ for domestic flights and 40€ for international flights.

In such cases, you can contact the Reservations Department and request the unaccompanied minors service (UMNR) or the escort service from and to the aircraft (MAAS).
