To make travel easier for unaccompanied minors, British Airways offers the Skyflyer Solo Service.
The Skyflyer Solo Service is available for all children travelling alone between the ages of 5 and 18. Customers wishing to use the service should notify British Airways reservations or their travel agents at least two days prior to travel to book and complete all required documentation. The service costs US$ 50 per child per direction.
"Our Skyflyer Solo Service is designed to make travelling for unaccompanied minors safe and fun for children, and of course less stressful for their parents. Key elements of the service are in place to ensure that our special customers are attended to and that their parents can enjoy the peace of mind that their child is being carefully taken care of throughout the entire journey." said Steve Harrison, British Airways Area Manager, Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia.
A member of the British Airways staff will host unaccompanied minors throughout the journey until they are collected by the nominated adult at the arriving airport or by the transferring airline.
Making transfers easier, British Airways has dedicated lounges for children at London Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
To help keep youngsters occupied and happy whilst on board, British Airways has re-launched Skyflyers - SkyflyerBravo and SkyflyerAlpha. Skyflyer packs are available and include brand new activity books, pens, stickers and toys and older children are given gifts such as a hand-held electronic game or Top Trumps. On longhaul flights, there are hours of on-screen entertainment from The Simpsons, Disney and Cartoon Network, and the latest blockbuster movies such as Sharks Tale, Monster Inc, 101 Dalmatians, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban which all feature on flights during December.
Classic favourites and nutritious meals such as chicken nuggets, pizza, pasta, breakfasts and desserts are also available. Children's meals should be requested at least 2 days prior to travel.
It is important to remember that stopovers at transfer points should not exceed four hours. Furthermore the Skyflyer service is not available to unaccompanied minors that need transfers between London Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
