Carriage of Unaccompanied Minor (UNMR)

The fee for unaccompanied minors on domestic flights is INR 4999, while for international flights, it varies and is detailed in the table below.
Unaccompanied minors must present their photo identification at the airport.

Before departure, parents must complete and sign an Unaccompanied Minor Form, allowing the airline to care for the child until they are handed over to the designated recipient upon arrival.

Throughout the journey, unaccompanied minors are accompanied by airline staff who assist them through airport procedures. In-flight, our dedicated cabin crew ensures their needs are met and assists them as necessary.

Unaccompanied minors receive a complimentary meal and beverage on-board from available choices.

Upon arrival, unaccompanied minors are released only to the authorized individual specified in the 'unaccompanied minor' form, who must provide their photo identification.

Unaccompanied minors are not accepted if an overnight stay is required.

SpiceJet does not transfer unaccompanied minors to international terminals for connecting flights with other airlines.

With SpiceJet, unaccompanied minors cannot transit from a domestic flight to an international flight or vice versa.

Important information regarding Minors & Children below the age of 18 years traveling to the UAE:

Children aged 5 to 18 years can travel alone to the UAE only as unaccompanied minors, and must have a copy of their parents' passports. They also need to have a form filled out by their parents with relevant details of their home address/U.A.E. address, and information about who will be receiving them in the UAE.

If the minor or child is traveling with another family member, an authorization letter from the parents or guardians, along with a copy of the parent or guardian's passport, is required.

The minor may be deported if immigration suspects illegal activity and the provided information is insufficient to address it. In such cases, the normal INAD process and subsequent fines will apply.

What are the travel guidelines for Young Passengers (ages 12-15)?

Children aged 12 to 15 years are considered Young Passengers (YP) and can travel alone on most flights, except for those to Dubai, where only children up to 18 years can travel as Unaccompanied Minors. However, parents or guardians have the option to request Unaccompanied Minor services for Young Passengers, in which case the applicable procedure and fee will apply.

Young Passengers receive the same care as Unaccompanied Minors, but they cannot act as guardians or companions to Unaccompanied Minors.


If a child aged 5 to 12 is accompanied by a Young Passenger (YP) who is 15 years or older, no charges apply.

If a child aged 5 to 12 is accompanied by a YP who is under 15 years old, the Unaccompanied Minor (UNMR) service is charged for the child passenger, while no charges apply for the YP.

What is the reporting time for unaccompanied minors at the airport?

Unaccompanied minor passengers must report to the airport at least two hours prior to departure for a domestic flight and three hours prior to departure for an international flight.

Is there any identification proof required for a child travelling alone?

At the time of check-in, the unaccompanied minor and their parent(s) or guardian must both present valid photo identification.

Will the child be assisted during travel with SpiceJet?

An airport staff member will assist the child until the time of boarding, after which our cabin crew will look after the child. The child on board will receive the finest care possible from our cabin crew throughout the flight. A complimentary eatable and beverage (from the options available) will also be provided. Parents are requested to pack their child's favourite toy or game, medication, warm clothing, and other items in their hand baggage to ensure that they have a comfortable flight.

Is web check-in open for unaccompanied minors?

The web check-in facility is not open for unaccompanied minors. To check in for their flight, they must go to the airport check-in counters.

The parent or guardian must remain at the airport until the flight departs.
