Does Singapore Airlines offer services for children traveling alone?
Singapore Airlines considers that a child is traveling alone when he/she isn’t accompanied, on the same flight and in the same cabin class, by an adult aged 18 years and above. In this case, the airline offers the Unaccompanied Minor service for flights operated by Singapore Airlines. If your child is travelling on or connecting to a flight that is operated by a Star Alliance or codeshare partner, you must directly contact the operating carrier to find out about their services for children traveling alone.
Which are the age restrictions on Singapore Airlines flights for children traveling alone?
Minors under 5 years old are not accepted by the airline for unaccompanied travel.
For children from 5 to 11 years old it is mandatory to request the Unaccompanied Minor service offered by the airline free of charge.
For children from 12 to 18 years old, this service is optional. In case you decide not to use this service, once you have booked the flight for your child online, you must download and fill the UM Waiver form and present it at check-in. If you require this service for your child’s travel, you cannot book the flight through the airline’s website, and additional fees may apply.

Once you have booked the minor’s flight through your travel agent or local Singapore Airlines’ office, and you must request or intend to require this service, then you must download and fill the UM Handling form and contact the airline’s office. This service takes care that your child will be always assisted by someone from check-in to arrival at the final destination. The airline will ensure to look after your child in the best possible way.
