In order to board their flight, all travelers need their booking number. Moreover, they are required to show proof of identity – even children/adolescents and infants.
European directives require children to travel with their own travel documents.
Every child of German nationality who travels outside Germany needs his or her own travel document, regardless of age. Entries in a parent's passport are no longer accepted.
The directive also applies to travel within the EU and the Schengen Area.
Foreign nationals who live in Germany are subject to the regulations of their own country or the entry provisions of the countries that they want to fly to.
Please note that in some countries, such as France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Croatia, Romania and Israel, separate entry and exit provisions apply to unaccompanied children and adolescents. You are expressly advised that every passenger bears individual responsibility for complying with the official entry and exit provisions. For this reason, we recommend obtaining information about the requirements from the responsible authorities and collecting the necessary documentation well before you travel.
On most routes, Eurowings can only transport children ages 12 and under if they travel with a responsible adult companion. On direct domestic flights and those from Germany to Zurich or Vienna only, Eurowings offers a service for unaccompanied minors ages 5 through 11.
In the event that the child's adult companion is not a parent or a guardian, we will need written consent from a parent and/or guardian. Click here to download the form for submitting this written consent, without which it will not be possible to transport the child.
The child and the companion must be reserved in the same booking (under the same booking number). If they are not, please contact our call center no later than 3 days before departure so that a special note can be added to the companion's reservation.
