British Airways is rolling out changes to the minimum age for travel for a child flying alone.
From bookings made after 1st May, a child must be 14 before it will be allowed to fly unaccompanied. This compares to the current age of 12.
In addition, any child aged under 16 MUST bring a completed parent / guardian consent form with them to the airport. This rule applies to new bookings made after 1st May.
Unaccompanied children will be booked on adult tickets and must travel without a chaperone throughout the entire journey. The ‘Skyflyer’ service which allocated chaperones to unaccompanied minors was scrapped by British Airways in 2016.
Full details of the changes are on this page of ba.com.
