Unaccompanied Minor Flying

I know there are plenty of fellow parents that have to send their kids alone on an airplane, traveling as what is called unaccompanied minor flying. I recently read an article about it, which I would like to recommend to those of you who have to plan for such a thing.

One very good aspect that Jeff Mills highlights in this article is the importance of explaining for the kids what they can expect from the flight. Which is something that all kids flying will benefit from, flying alone or with their parents (or siblings).

You can read more in this article from The Wall Street Journal, called Nanny Services Make flying Solo a Breeze for kids.

About Caroline

I am a proud mother of two toddlers, living in Texas. I have been a globetrotter since childhood, and decided to continue with that despite all the hassle that comes with traveling with small kids. My opinion is that every kid benefits from exploring new cultures and seeing different places. So far, my passport has stamps from India, Russia, Ukraine, Israel, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, England, Scotland, Wales, Germany, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, France and Greece. When flying is not an option, me and my family take the car out for a road trip, exploring the adventurous USA.
