interCaribbean Airways takes pride in being of the best kid-friendly airlines operating in the region. Our policy for travelling with children states that
- One infant over 14 days and under two (2) years of age, not occupying a seat, maybe carried free when travelling with an adult Age 18 or older) on Domestic flights, and pays 10% of the accompanying adult on international flights. If the infant turns two (2) years old before the return journey, then a seat must be purchased for that infant.
Travel with an FAA-approved car seat
- Parent who wish to travel using an approved car seat occupying a seat, will be required to purchase a Child Fare, to ensure being able to use the approved car seat on-board.
- A boarding pass is required to occupy a seat.
- A birth certificate must be produced to validate infant age for domestic travel (2 years or less). Should this not be available and the age cannot be verified, the parent or guardian will be required to purchase a child fare.
- A medical release for travel is required for any infant under fourteen (14) days old.
- Children ages two (2) through eleven (11) will be charged the applicable Child’s Fare for the flight (does not apply to unaccompanied children ages (5) five through eleven (11). Proof of age will be required.
Unaccompanied Children (UMNR)
- Unaccompanied children ages five (5) through eleven (11) are accepted. Proof of age will be required.
- When making reservations, please advise the Reservations Sales Agent that the booking is for an “Unaccompanied Minor”.
- Unaccompanied Minors must be check in at the Departure Gate at least 45 minutes prior to departure. An Unaccompanied Minor form must be completed before interCaribbean Airways can accept the child for travel. The party dropping bringing the child to the airport will be required to remain at the airport until the flight has departed.
- The child will be pre-boarded and be identified to the Flight Attendant as an Unaccompanied Minor. Unaccompanied Minors arriving too late to be pre-boarded will be boarded last to ensure identification to the Flight Attendant. When the flight arrives at its final destination, the child will be escorted off the aircraft by a Flight Attendant and released to the person designated on the Unaccompanied Minor form or another interCaribbean Airways Employee.
- The dropping off and receiving parties should follow the suggested airport arrival times in order to allow time to obtain an “escort pass,” which grants access through security checkpoint to deliver or meet the child at the aircraft’s Gate. (where allowed in most typically in USA Airports). An identity verification process at the ticket counter is required before issuing an “escort pass.” The party picking up the child must be the person designated on the Unaccompanied Minor Form, which is completed at the beginning city of the journey. interCaribbean Airways will require the designated receiving party to produce positive identification and sign a release for the Unaccompanied Minor.
Our policy has been temporarily updated effective May 19, 2022 to restrict this service only to non-stop flights. Unaccompanied minors will not be allowed on connecting flights (with one or more stopovers) for safety reasons.
