AirAsia India and Air India Express announce a Special Service for Unaccompanied Minors

AirAsia India and Air India Express Launch Unaccompanied Minor Service for Safe and Exciting Solo Travels

Empowering Young Explorers with a Secure and Enjoyable Travel Experience

National, August 24, 2023: Air India Express and AirAsia India, two leading names in the aviation industry, are delighted to introduce their specialized Unaccompanied Minor (UMNR) service, catering to young travelers aged between five (5) and twelve (12) years. This remarkable service, initially available for international flights, has now been expanded to cover domestic sectors, ensuring a secure and comfortable journey for young explorers and peace of mind for parents and guardians.

With the Unaccompanied Minor service, young flyers can embark on their solo travel adventures across a range of direct sectors. This initiative has been crafted to offer parents and guardians the assurance that their children are in safe hands throughout their journey, from departure to arrival. Booking for the Unaccompanied Minor service is accessible on the official airline website,, as well as at airport sales counters. Prices start from just ₹5,000.

Upon arrival at the airport, young travelers will be personally greeted by the airline's attentive staff before the security checks. They will receive dedicated assistance throughout the airport formalities, ensuring a smooth and regulated travel experience. To facilitate verification, a valid photo identification document is required for both the child and the parent or guardian at departure and arrival. Additionally, parents or guardians are required to accompany the child to the airport and arrive at least two hours before the scheduled departure for domestic flights. On arrival, the airline's staff will accompany and support the child through the airport arrival procedures until they are reunited with their parent or guardian.

Expressing enthusiasm for the launch, Ankur Garg, Chief Commercial Officer, stated, "Our commitment to enhancing the travel experience of our passengers drives our innovations. By extending the Unaccompanied Minor services to all domestic sectors, we aim to offer young explorers a warm and comfortable flying experience. Ensuring the well-being of our young flyers is paramount to us, and our dedicated staff will oversee a seamless and secure journey for these solo travelers from check-in to arrival."

The introduction of unaccompanied minor services is a testament to the holistic approach of Air India Express and AirAsia India in enhancing the entire travel journey. These services complement the range of integrated product and service offerings by the airlines.
