British Airways – Unaccompanied Minors

Despite British Airway’s growth in their customer numbers over the last decade, demand for their Skyflyer Solo (Unaccompanied Minor) service has declined.

Having conducted a thorough review of the service, they have with regret concluded to no longer offer this service.

British Airways will honour all bookings that have already been made for unaccompanied minors, but new bookings will cease with immediate effect.  In line with the existing policy, British Airways will continue to take bookings for 12 to 18 year-olds who wish to fly independently.  However, children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult aged 16 years or over.

Existing Unaccompanied Minors may have changes made to their bookings provided all travel is completed by 31st January 2017.

Following today’s announcement, any customer with an existing booking for an Unaccompanied Minor may cancel their booking and receive a full refund.
