Children Traveling Alone


Delta’s committed to providing safe travel for all — especially children traveling by themselves with our unaccompanied minor program. For a $150 fee each way, up to 4 children between the ages of 5 to 14 will receive an employee escort and special amenities for a reliable and comfortable trip. Minors between the ages of 15 to 17 can use this program, per parent or guardian request.

  • Children traveling as unaccompanied minors receive barcoded wristbands that track their journey 
  • Parents or guardians can escort unaccompanied minors to the gate area through security
  • Children have access to Delta Sky Zone at some airports, a kids-only lounge with video games, snacks and a secure area to hang out between flights
