How can I make arrangements for my child to travel as an Unaccompanied Minor?
Children aged between 5 and 14 must travel as Unaccompanied Minors when not accompanied by an adult.
Children aged between 14 and 18 years may travel as Unaccompanied Minors at the request of a parent or guardian.
The Unaccompanied Minor service must be booked for all route segments and paid for in advance at Azerbaijan Airlines offices or through a travel agent.
Unaccompanied Minors Service
To make the travel arrangements for an Azerbaijani child traveling as an Unaccompanied Minor to leave the country, the parents or guardians must fill out a permission form and have it notarized. This application must be signed by both parents or guardians.
In the case of itineraries with connecting flights, the transfer must not involve transportation to another air terminal or airport, an overnight stop at the transfer point, and the reservation must be confirmed at the airport of transfer.
The Unaccompanied Minor must be brought at the airport by parents or legal guardian to check in at least 2-3 hours before departure. The parents/guardians must fill out and sign a Declaration for the carriage of the unaccompanied child. An Azerbaijan Airlines staff member will accompany the child through airport security, the waiting area and to boarding gates until the child boards the aircraft where the cabin crew will then look after them. Parents/guardians must stay at the airport until a flight has departed. At arrival, Azerbaijan Airlines ground staff will accompany the child through all the procedures (baggage claim, customs, etc.).
