Children sometimes need to travel on their own. We therefore offer an unaccompanied minor service to ensure they are looked after during the trip. The service permits children who have reached their 5th but not 12th birthday to fly alone. The service is optional for travelers aged 12 - 15 years, but if requested by the parent/guardian, the child can not decline the service.
You need to request the Unaccompanied Minor service in advance, because the number on each flight is limited. You are not yet able to book the service here on the internet, but have to contact SAS telephone booking.
You will have to complete a handling advice form for your child. Please download the form and fill it out before you check in. If you are unable to do so the form will be given to you at the SAS check-in counter at the airport.

When you bring your child to the airport you will be asked to assist with departure formalities and to remain at the airport until the aircraft has taken off. Your child will be escorted through the security check, to the departure gate and onboard. Boarding takes place ahead of the other passengers. Your child will be accompanied through arrival formalities before handing her/him over to the care of the meeting adult (the person stated on the handling advice form).
Due to new EU regulations you need to have a boarding pass to be allowed to pass through the security check points into the transit area. If your child is traveling on a Swedish domestic flight, you may still accompany your child all the way to the gate, through the security check point. Please contact the staff at the airport and they will help you with all the formalities. Upon arrival, you will not be able to meet your child at the gate. Your child will be accompanied through arrival formalities before handing her/him over to you or the care of the meeting adult (the person stated on the handling advice form).
Unaccompanied minors receive special attention and assistance during irregularities and we ensure that parents are kept well informed of any re-routing arrangements. A child traveling alone with the unaccompanied minor service is never left unattended.
On domestic flights in Sweden and Denmark a special fare applies for unaccompanied minors, no charge is added.
On international routes a service fee of EUR 40 or equivalent in other currency per one way trip will be charged.
