Children age 12 or older may fly alone. Children under 12 may only fly accompanied by a responsible adult. Children between the ages of 5 and 11 may also travel accompanied by a sibling age 16 or older. The child's companion must be able to assist the child at all times in the event of an unexpected occurrence. If the responsible adult does not have parental authority, we must be provided with written permission from an adult with parental authority.
Please note that special entry and exit conditions apply in some countries.
Unaccompanied minor service
On direct domestic flights and direct flights from Germany to Zurich or Vienna Eurowings offers an unaccompanied minor service (UM service) for children ages 5 up to and including 11. Our friendly staff will not only ensure the well-being of your child during the flight, but will also make sure that your child arrives safely in the destination airport. On board, each unaccompanied child will receive a sweet or savory snack, 0.2 L of still water, a sweet and, upon request, an additional beverage free of charge.
The UM service and the corresponding flight can be booked through the call center or at a Eurowings airport counter, but unfortunately not online or by mobile phone. If your booking has an etix® ticket number, you can only book the UM service at the airport.
A fee will be charged per leg of travel and per child. This must be paid with the booking payment.
All regulations apply to Eurowings flights with an EW flight number, regardless of the operating airline. For our partner airlines' flights, which do not have an EW flight number, the conditions of the specific airline apply and can be viewed on the airlines' own websites. These partner airlines currently include Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Condor, United Airlines, Air Canada and All Nippon Airways.
