About our service
SAS offers an Unaccompanied minor service for children age 5–17 on flights within Scandinavia and age 5–15 on European and most other flights.
For children 5-11 years of age our service is mandatory, but for children 12–15 years of age, it's optional if requested by their parents or guardians. For children aged 16–17 we offer this service when traveling within Scandinavia.
The parent/legal guardian, or an authorized adult must accompany/take the child to the check-in and stay until the flight has departed. At some airports you may be required to accompany your child to the gate yourself. Please enquire about this at a SAS check-in counter when you arrive at the airport.
Our Unaccompanied Minor service ensures your child will be introduced to the flight attendant, chaperoned during all connections, helped with any baggage and through customs and passport checks. At their destination the child will be released to the appropriate person (as authorized in writing by a parent/guardian) at the gate.
