You must book the service at least 2 business days prior to departure, to ensure we have sufficient means on board to accommodate your child's needs. If you call to book, please have ready the information about the responsible adult or guardian who will be dropping off and picking up the child from the airport.
The unaccompanied minor form must be filled out and printed 4 times. These documents must then be presented during the check-in process at the airport.
Please note: If your child is traveling alone with more than one airline, you need to book the service with the other airline in question, and familiarize yourself with the rules regarding their unaccompanied minor service. You may also need to check country regulations at the transfer airport(s), as rules for unaccompanied minor service may vary from country to country.
Unaccompanied minors must be checked in by an adult guardian who must provide photo identification and contact information, as well as their relationship to the child.
The responsible guardian must remain at the airport until the aircraft is airborne.
Travel documents for the unaccompanied minor are placed in a special Icelandair wallet, which is worn by the child.
Four copies of our unaccompanied minor form should be filled out and presented at the airport during check-in.
During the transfer time in Keflavík airport the unaccompanied minor will be escorted by an Icelandair ground agent to a private waiting area. An Icelandair ground agent will also escort the unaccompanied minor to the aircraft before the boarding process has started.

The cabin crew will check in with your child throughout the flight.
As an additional safety precaution, your child will be seated at the back of the aircraft so that crew is always within easy reach.
