Icelandair can arrange Unaccompanied Minor service for children who are travelling alone.
On Icelandair flights an Unaccompanied Minor is a child between 5 and 11 years of age (11 inclusive) who is NOT accompanied by an adult having the same reservation status and capable of taking full responsibility for the child.
If needed, Unaccompanied Minor service can be arranged for passengers between 12 and 15 years of age (15 inclusive). Same rules and fees apply as for passenger with mandatory Unaccompanied Minor service.
It is not possible to book an Unaccompanied Minor via our website. Please contact our Service Center to book the child as an Unaccompanied Minor. This service must be confirmed at least two business days prior to departure.
Please have the information about the responsible adult guardian dropping off and picking up the child from the airport ready when you call to book.
The Unaccompanied Minor service may not be booked if the connection time in Iceland is more than three hours, this includes any stopover in Iceland.
An Unaccompanied Minor form must be filled out and printed four times. Must be presented during the check-in process at the airport.

Unaccompanied Minors must be checked-in by an adult guardian who must provide photo identification and contact information, as well as the relationship to the child. The responsible guardian must remain at the airport until the aircraft is airborne.
On arrival in the destination city, the Icelandair ground agent will also check photo identification and contact information before releasing the child to the guardian, who is predetermined in the child's booking.
Unaccompanied Minors ages 2-11 years receive a child meal and beverages brought by the cabin crew, while children 12 years and older can select food items of preference from the Economy Class menu, free of charge.
