Unaccompanied Minor (UMNR) service, a dedicated and secure travel option for child travelers between the ages of five (5) and twelve (12) years, is now available on all direct routes with Air India Express and AirAsia India. The service, which was previously only available on foreign flights, has been improved and made available on domestic flights as well, giving parents and guardians the assurance that their children will receive special attention throughout their trip and will enjoy themselves. Bookings for the Unaccompanied Minor service start at 5,000 on the airline’s website, airindiaexpress.com, or at the airport sales counters.
Young travelers will receive committed help and be individually welcomed by airline workers in the terminal before to airport security checks. They will also receive assistance throughout all required travel formalities at the airport. The parent or guardian must accompany the child to the airport and arrive at least two hours before to the scheduled departure time for domestic flights. A valid photo identity document is necessary for both the child and the parent or guardian upon departure and arrival for verification. The youngster will be accompanied and helped by airline personnel through the arrivals procedure at the airport until they are securely reunited with their parent or guardian.
Ankur Garg, Chief Commercial Officer, commented on the launch by saying, “We’re continuously searching for ways to improve our clients’ travel experiences. With the expansion of Unaccompanied Minor services to all of our domestic routes, we hope to give young adventurers flying alone a relaxing and pleasant flight experience. We place a high priority on the safety of our young passengers, and our committed crew will make sure that their trip is smooth and secure from check-in to arrival.
