Your child's trip

We have created the Kids Solo service for children traveling alone. Thanks to this service, your child will be under the supervision of our staff throughout the trip.

Fees and conditions for children traveling alone

The" Kids Solo " service is mandatory for children from 4 to 11 years of age traveling alone within Metropolitan France and the territories and departments of Overseas France, as well as Papeete, and from 5 to 14 years of age on international flights. Find out more

How can I book a ticket for my child?

You can book your child’s ticket online for all flights* operated by Air France. If your child is between 4 and 11 years old you can book their ticket using the Air France app. When you book their ticket, please let us know your child is traveling alone. You will need to complete the "unaccompanied minor" form online.  *Please note that the Kids Solo service is limited on board our aircraft and is not available for every flight.


Contact us for further questions

Some countries require travel documents, quarantine upon arrival, a recent negative test for Covid-19 or medical certificates, including for children. The use of a mask (without a valve) is recommended on board our aircraft for passengers from the age of six, and especially for vulnerable passengers. Depending on the country of departure or arrival, masks may be required on board or at the airport. Please check the travel requirements of your child’s destination countries. To learn more, please consult TravelDocUpdated: January 2023.
