Are children allowed to travel alone on Caribbean Airlines flights?
Children aged 2 to 5 years must be accompanied by someone who is 16 years or older.
Children aged 5 to 11 years may travel alone on flights operated by Caribbean Airlines, providing that advanced arrangement was made for the Unaccompanied Minors service.
The Unaccompanied Minors service is optional for children aged 12 to 15 who are traveling alone.
What is the booking procedure for children traveling alone on Caribbean Airlines flights?
The Unaccompanied Minors service must be requested at the time of booking the child’s flight, by calling Caribbean Airlines Reservations or through a travel agent. Due to safety reasons, a limited number of Unaccompanied Minors can be accepted per flight.
Caribbean Airlines accepts Unaccompanied Minors for onward travel only provided that the child is holding a confirmed reservation and ticket on the other carrier. At JFK Airport, the transfer of Unaccompanied Minors is limited to American Airlines, United Airlines, and British Airways.
Unaccompanied Minors pay the full adult fare, and Caribbean Airlines charges a service fee of USD 100 one-way for each Unaccompanied Minor. The service fee is not charged on domestic flights between Trinidad and Tobago.
