Unaccompanied minors

Special attention for your children traveling alone on Luxair flights

Unaccompanied minors are very welcome to travel with Luxair. For your children’s safety and for your peace of mind, however, several conditions must be respected.

Conditions for carriage of unaccompanied minors

  • For children between 5 and 12 years old *, an “unaccompanied minors UM” reservation is obligatory.
  • For children between 12 and 18 years old, passengers must have written permission from their parents or legal guardian to travel alone. Important : Luxair highly recommends that a "unaccompanied minors UM” request be filled for these young passengers.

For information and reservations, please contact your travel agency, Luxair or LuxairTours callcenter (+352 2456 1).

*Note: for children aged between 5 and 12 years old, Luxair requires a declaration (2 copies) to allow the minor to travel alone. This declaration must be signed by the police or the local authorities (Administration Communale, etc.).

Furthermore form H140, which exempts Luxair from any responsibility, must also be signed by the parental authority (father, mother or legal guardian). Please download it here.
