Flying with kids

What documents do I need to fly with a minor?

Before traveling, please note that, for their safety, all minors must be identified before airport and immigration authorities. The required documents change depending on your age, whether you are traveling with a parent, with a relative or unaccompanied.

Please note:

  • Starting February 15, 2024, passengers aged 14 or younger must travel with their parents or a responsible adult on both domestic and international flights. Find more information in the bulletin.
  • If you purchased a ticket before February 15, 2024, don't worry! Passengers aged 14 or younger will still be able to travel. They will need to approach the airport counter to receive their boarding pass.
  • Confirm the necessary requirements or authorizations for the departure and entry of minors with the corresponding immigration authority of each country.
  • Please note that we do not provide the unaccompanied minor or recommended minor service on any of our routes.
For domestic flights in Colombia and Ecuador
  • ID document:
    • For minors from 0 to 7 years old: Original copy of civil registry or birth certificate. (Avoid carrying photocopies, photographs on mobile devices or the loss report of the document.)
    • For minors from 8 to 17 years old: ID card.
  • Parent ID:
    • If the minor is traveling without parents, a photocopy of the parents' or their legal guardians' ID is required.
    • In the event that one of the parents is deceased, it is necessary to present the death certificate or civil registry.
  • Responsible companion:
    For regulation and safety reasons, minors up to 11 years of age cannot travel alone; they must be accompanied by an adult.
For international flights
  • Passport:
    To leave the country, all minors from 0 to 17 years of age must have a valid and current passport.
  • Copy of civil registry or birth certificate. (Avoid carrying photocopies, photographs on mobile devices or the loss report of the document.)
  • Authorization or exit permit:
    If the minor is traveling unaccompanied by one or both parents or guardians, an authenticated exit permit signed by the parents or guardians is required. This permit may vary in format and procedure depending on the country.
    • Find it on the official website of the immigration authority of your country of residence.
    • We recommend you carry an additional authenticated copy in case the immigration authorities of your connection or destination country require it for entering or exiting the country.
    • Remember that it is always advisable to verify the information and requirements for leaving the country with the immigration authorities before planning your trip with a minor.
